What is the difference between an ‘acoustic’ and ‘electro-acoustic’ guitar; and which one do I need?
I’ll try to explain the difference between the two – Which suits you best; only you can answer!
Conventional (non-electric) acoustic guitars; produce sound when the ‘resonation’ produced by a string being plucked reverberates in the ‘sound box’; (the hollow bit inside your guitar). This in turn; reverbs through the wooden body of the guitar itself. The advantage of this; is that acoustic guitars produce a very natural; resonant sound. However; the disadvantage is; that producing sound in this way has its limits when it comes to volume. Thus; this is where the electro-acoustic guitar comes in!
Electro Acoustic Guitars;
Electro-acoustic guitars are fitted with an on-board ‘pickup’. A pickup; is a device which takes the signals from the vibrations of your guitar’s strings; and sends them to an amplifier with the use of a cable. This in turn; converts these signals into an audible sound. Because the sound goes to the amplifier from the guitar; it can be modified in several ways. Most importantly; in terms of volume. But; you also have the option of altering your sound by adding ‘effects’; such as distortion; delay; or reverb. These adjustments can all be made with the amplifier.
Thus; for versatility in sound; the electro acoustic guitar gives you the best in volume; as well as those special effects!
