Well after sitting honing my Illustrator skills I have completed my labelled diagram of an electric guitar. After playing guitar for 20 years it never ceases to amaze me how much I learn and relearn about things I already thought I knew!
I’m primarily putting up the diagram with labels this week and shall follow with some descriptions of the labels very soon. The PDF will be again on my Free Resources page to be downloaded and printed at your leisure.
What I have learned through doing this is how many different shapes and sizes and mere ideas of guitars are in existence. It has made me wish to play every single one of them just to hear and feel the fine – tuning differences. I only learned yesterday that Pythagoras was responsible for the way we use the divisions of notes in music today. The physics of music seems to interest me greatly 🙂
My weapons of choice in electric guitar world are currently a Fender Thinline Tele ’72 which has a beautiful sound and my Jackson DK3 from my metal band and University days (this will never leave). I’m now eyeing up everything..
