Most, if not all guitars are made out of wood. Wide families of wood are what are used in creating and producing guitars.
However, guitar manufacturers don’t use the same type and kind of wood for all the parts.
As a matter of fact, it has been the notion to create and manufacture a guitar with different types and kinds of wood for its various parts.
Let’s try to dissect and briefly explain each guitar part.
The headstock is like the ultimate guitar part that can make or break your guitar.
It’s where the tuning keys are attached to – and also where the strings are. Crafting the headstock is usually made out of wood (which is often, but not always) that the type of wood the neck is.
Headstocks are considered to be one of the easiest parts of a guitar to manufacture; you can make them using a single piece of wood.
BODY OF THE GUITAR
As you may have guessed, the body of a guitar is made out of wood. Because of the resonance that wood is offering, the sounds produced are better and clearer compared to other materials.
THE NECK OF THE GUITAR
Akin to the body, the neck of the guitar is also often made out of wood. However, there are times when manufacturers found other materials to be better and more effective.
The type of wood made for the body of the guitar, would oftentimes – not all the time – be the same type of wood to craft the neck.
BRIDGE OF THE GUITAR
The bridge of the guitar is almost always made from wood with a saddle. In electric guitars though, they can be made and produced from metal.
NUTS OF THE GUITAR
Among the various parts of the guitar, the nuts are the most versatile.
You can make them out of cow bone, brass, plastic, ebony, ivory, and even cow bone. They’re either grooved or notched to make way for the strings to pass through.
FRETS OF A GUITAR
Oftentimes, guitar frets are manufactured and made up of nickel silver.
Other manufacturers experiment and try out other materials that offer the same physicality, but nickel silver is among the most popular.
The most common materials used by guitar manufacturers in using fretboards include rosewood, ebony, or other types of hardwood available.
Your guitar wouldn’t be manufactured without tuning keys or turning heads.
They’re often made out of metal.
You can now understand what composes a guitar. It utilizes a wide array of materials. It has been this way back since the first guitar manufacturers mass-produced the instrument.
In the simplest way possible, a guitar is made up of 13 different parts:
Electric guitars and classical guitars might have different parts. But, all guitars have these parts as their skeletal structure.
You wouldn’t be able to make a guitar work if one of these parts go missing.
Guitar, plucked stringed musical instrument that probably originated in Spain early in the 16th century, deriving from the guitarra latina, a late-medieval instrument with a waisted body and four strings. The early guitar was narrower and deeper than the modern guitar, with a less pronounced waist.
Guitar-like instruments date back almost as far as recorded history. The first known illustrations of its ancestor, the kithara, are almost 4,000 years old. These multi-string, fretted instruments are part of an instrument family known as chordophones. Basic guitar design spread and evolved across many cultures over the years. The guitar began to take its modern form in 16th Century Spain. These, it was still primarily used as a rhythm instrument for accompaniment rather than as a solo voice.
The development of a fanned bracing system in the early 19th century by Spanish guitarist Antonio de Torres Jurado made the instrument more durable and louder. Finally able to hold its own and project to a larger audience, guitar was off to the races. Most modern classical and flamenco guitars still use a bracing pattern that is essentially the same as the one Torres developed.
Despite its mostly European roots, most of the development of modern acoustic and electric guitars happened in the United States. It started when German immigrant Christian Frederick (C.F.) Martin invented a new X-bracing pattern around 1843. In increasing both volume and durability, this helped make the guitar more portable. It was suited to be the musical choice of a population that was increasingly on the move as the country expanded westward.
The development of the modern arch-top guitar traces to Orville Gibson, who began carving tops for his company's guitars in the late 19th century. Lloyd Loar added a violin-style f-hole in the 1920s. The punchy rhythm of an arch-top design could cut through the developing sound of jazz better. Still, the guitar was still not an instrument that could rise above the rest of the band as a solo voice, like brass and wind instruments could. It was time to plug things in.
Popular rumor has it that the first guitar pickup was a phonograph needle stuck into the top of a guitar. Maybe so, but there's not definite evidence, as attractive as the story is. It may stem from the fact that the first magnetic guitar pickup, designed by George Beauchamp for the Rickenbacker (then Ro-Pat-In) "Frying Pan" lap steel, started from Beauchamp's experiments with phonograph pickup assemblies. The Frying Pan, interestingly, is also an instrument that can also make a claim as being the first solid-body guitar.
The electric guitar really started to take off with a combination of Gibson's 1936 introduction of the ES-150 and its adoption by Benny Goodman guitarist Charlie Christian, who remains an inspiration for many guitarists today. The pickup that became known as the Charlie Christian pickup was a single-coil pickup that used a single bar as a common pole-piece for all six strings. It was originally developed for Gibson's lap steels, but placing one on the ES-150 was either a stroke of genius, or an example of sheer luck that established the electric guitar as the wave of the future.
As amplifiers grew more powerful and music got louder, many builders and guitarists began to experiment with the idea of guitars made from solid wood to ameliorate the problem of uncontrollable feedback howls that came with higher volumes. It was an idea that's time had clearly come, from the number of different versions of a solid-body guitar that began to appear in the 1940s and early 1950s.
Most credit Paul Bigsby with the first true solid-body non-lap-steel guitar. It was popularized by country-western guitarist and finger-picking legend, Merle Travis. Bigsby's guitar debuted in 1948, followed very shortly by Leo Fender's Broadcaster which was renamed the Telecaster in 1952 after having been nameless for a couple of years due to Gretsch already owning the original name. The 1950–52 guitar marked only with Fender on the headstock is popularly known as the Nocaster.
The rock-and-roll explosion of the 1950s and 1960s greatly expanded both the use and the technology of electric guitars. The release of Gibson's Les Paul models and Fender's Stratocaster were only the beginning. Soon came further development of the humbucking pickup along with revolutions in materials and electronics. With new design concepts like headless designs, multi-scale instruments, modeling electronics, and extended range 7-, 8- and 9-string guitars, the guitar's future has never looked brighter.
If the guitar lacks the Made in… label or a serial number, it could be an imitation. Check to see if anything is still missing or if the surface is beginning to wear out. Even if the guitar is a work of art, it will still look brand new. If the guitar was frequently played, it’s most likely not a real guitar. Check the guitar’s body for any loose parts. A genuine guitar will have a straight, polished surface, whereas a fake will have a curved or bumpy surface.
One of the primary factors in how a guitar feels and plays is the neck. Variations in scale length, commonly between 24.5" and 25.5", determine string tension, a major contributor to sonic personality.
Another consideration with necks is the curve of the fingerboard, also called the fretboard. Unlike classical and flamenco guitars, which have flat fingerboards, steel string guitars, both acoustic and electric, have slightly curved fingerboards. This curve is expressed as the radius of the circle that the fingerboard can be thought of as being part of. The smaller the radius, the more curved the fingerboard. Since your fingers are more curved than straight, the curve of a fingerboard makes it easier to play barre chords and fret multiple strings at once.
