The wood is important, of course: we've learned it by interviewing luthiers and
visiting Madinter. And...what about
the shape? Indeed it seems that the
vast majority of the guitarists’ community is divided between Gibson or Fender-aholics, the eternal struggle. Weight, color, frets, neck thickness... many things effect the choice of a guitar, either new or vintage.
the pickups, an electric guitar
would be nothing more than a nice piece of treated and shaped wood, even the one that proceeds from
an exotic country, that perfectly fits with our tastes, like
two pieces of the same puzzle.
And, as there couldn't be any other way, it even exists a world between the choice of the pickups. How many, which type, single-coil or humbucker or both at the same time? Not even the
great guitarists, our legends, seem to agree: there’s a pickup for each taste.
This graph shows the basics, in a clear, simple, and ultimate way, to understand what a pickup is. Have Fun!
