The first electric guitar sound had holes in the body that were smaller than the holes sound of classical guitars. In 1924 Lloyd Loar, an engineer at the plant in Gibson, used a magnet to change the vibrations of guitar strings into electrical signals, which could be amplified by a speaker.

It is still the second most popular guitar in the world.

Electric guitars today produce tones ranging from futuristic music or quasi-acoustic sounds.

In the 1960s, effects boxes introduced fuzz, delay, echo and noise Wah-Wah sound to the arsenal available for the modern guitarist. Foot pedal operated by the guitar player turns effects on or off.
