Are electric guitars the same as acoustic?

Answered on 31st January 2018 by Rich

No. Electric Guitars are not the same as Acoustic Guitars. The primary volume source from an Electric Guitar is provided by a Guitar Amplifier, as string vibrations are transmitted down through the pick ups, through the cable to Amplifier. An Acoustic Guitar works by the guitar string vibrations being circulated in the body of the acoustic guitar, and physically being amplified and pushed back out of the sound hole. Thus, an acoustic guitar has a naturally louder and tonally different sound than an “unplugged” electric guitar.

There are many other differences, such as their traditional build methods, how they feel to play, the types of musical genre they are best suited etc etc.
