The electric guitar has been around since the late ’40s, early ’50s. Credited by people such as Les Paul, Adoph Rickenbacker & of course the one and only Mr. Leo Fender. Known of the Fender Stratocaster. A revolutionary design for its time. Still among one of the most popular and copied guitars on the market today.
This new instrument was needed because the standard acoustic type of guitar was not loud enough to keep up with other instruments in a musical ensemble. So with that being said, many guitar players and electronic wizards decided to fix the problem. Hence what we have today, the electric guitar.
