This contest is fueled by the following news: Guitar Tone: Actually, it is very simple here. We suggest having only two guitar tone types in the world. Acoustic and electric tones and that's all. And now, we shall take up the differences. The acoustic tone is raw tone of the instrument. This is the tone, which is heard when the guitar is played without an amplifier. It is not a distorted sound of a guitar. It is true tone. And still the same question, what is the instrument. Every guitar has acoustic tone. Sometimes, this tone is sufficiently silent and unclear in guitars. But it exists and piezoceramic transducers are available presently, the aim of which is to carry the initial acoustic tone to the amplifier without distortion. It is possible to use piezoceramic transducers on any guitar! Every guitar has its own acoustic tone. The entire issue is whether such a tone is pleasant or not. And, still it is possible to make any guitar with an electric tone. Because, it is possible to stuff any type of guitar into a deforming amplifier and also fit electromagnetic transducers on any guitar. Simply, the result will be different. Some guitars are appropriate for acoustic tone and some for electric. And, attempts were made to have both the tone types on guitars. It's up to taste the choice is yours many diversified things are invented in the world. And, it would be simple if the purpose of the guitar is taken into consideration and to look for any type of tone. If it has an electric tone (it has an electromagnetic transducer) then the guitar is used with an amplifier and its acoustic tone is unnecessary for anybody, which indicates that finally it is an electric guitar. It is created to produce an electric tone. And, if this guitar is created for acoustic sound, then it is an acoustic guitar. And, is it worth it to have a piezoceramic transducer fitted on the guitar or a suggestion comes your way to use the guitar with a microphone is a secondary issue. These are just amplification methods. Guitars such as Parker Fly, Godin LGX exist, which are created for both tone types. I would suggest naming them "electro-acoustic" guitars. Even though the term is already assigned and more often, guitars created for acoustic tone and possessing piezo-electronics, are called "electro-acoustic" guitars in the shops. Body: Situations arise when people cannot differentiate the acoustic guitar from the semi-acoustic or semi-acoustic from the electric guitar. In this case, what is not clear to people is whether the tone of guitar or its structure of the body is important. Still confusion exists in the world with regard to the semi-acoustic guitar. Erroneous opinions exist with respect to this guitar: * Hollow inside the body and thus with a thin body - twice thinner than the acoustic guitar; * A guitar with a hollow inside the body and resonator holes not in the form of a single round-shaped hole (as on traditional acoustic guitars) and in the form of a paired "f"; However, these are all incorrect definitions. The concept of the semi-acoustic instrument has originated from free translation of the English term Semi-Hollow (Semi-Acoustic). How designated is this term, which entered the world of guitars in the 50s of the twentieth century? Let's try to understand. If we analyze the bodies of all guitars, it can be observed that the guitars have three types of designs: * Solid body: one-piece body (without resonant hollows inside); * Hollow body: (completely hollow inside and consisting of three parts sounding board, bottom deck and "ribs"); * Semi-hollow body: (having a solid wooden middle portion inside and hollow ribs) Guitars in the news: The American makers of the famous Stratocaster guitars, Fender Musical Instruments, are for sale. Goldman Sachs has been appointed to look at selling the business. A competitive auction is expected to be utilized to sell the company. The Finacial Times reported the development. Rock legends including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Kurt Cobain have all used Stratocasters. The company might fetch up to $500 million through the sale. Fender was founded by Leo Fender. The Stratocaster was introduced onto the market in 1954 and remains a highly sought after instrument.
