Wood Species and Electric Guitars

The woods in an electric guitar play a major role not only in how it looks and feels but how it sounds. The effect that the woods have in an electric guitar sound is often overlooked or underrated by players who tend to rely more on pickups and the amplifier to dial in their sounds. There is no doubt that every component in the electric guitar signal chain has an effect on the final sound, but the fact is that it starts from the vibrating strings and it is this natural acoustic sound that gets amplified to a much louder volume.
