Many experiments at electrically amplifying the vibrations of a string instrument were made dating back to the early part of the 20th century.Patents from the 1910s show telephone transmitters were adapted and placed inside violins and banjos to amplify the sound.During the 1950s and 1960s, the electric guitar became the most important instrument in pop music.It has evolved into an instrument that is capable of a multitude of sounds and styles in genres ranging from pop and rock to country music, blues and jazz.Gibson's first production electric guitar, marketed in 1936, was the ES-150 model ("ES" for "Electric Spanish", and "150" reflecting the 0 price of the instrument, along with matching amplifier).The ES-150 guitar featured a single-coil, hexagonally shaped "bar" pickup, which was designed by Walt Fuller.In 1934, the company was renamed the Rickenbacker Electro Stringed Instrument Company.

Often the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion and "overdrive", with the growling sound of the latter being a key element of the sound of the electric guitar as it is used in blues and rock music.It is sensed by a pickup, most commonly a magnetic pickup that uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction.The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is plugged into a guitar amplifier before being sent to a loudspeaker, which makes a sound loud enough to hear.The first solid-body Spanish standard guitar was offered by Vivi-Tone no later than 1934.This model featured a guitar-shaped body of a single sheet of plywood affixed to a wood frame.
