About Electric Guitar

An electric guitar is built with a transducer to magnify vibrations of the guitar strings. When the guitar is plugged into an amplifier, the electrical signals generated are boosted by an audio-frequency amplifier and sent to a loudspeaker. The volume and resonance of the guitar are controlled by the player. Special effects such as reverb and distortion can also be generated by both the guitar and amplifier.Technavio’s analysts forecast the global electric guitar market to grow at a CAGR of 3.44% during the period 2016-2020.
