Electric guitars can be used to play a wide range of musical styles. From the classic rock tones of a Fender Strat through to the speedy playability of an Ibanez JEM or even the bright country tones of a semi-hollow Gretsch, we have you covered.
If you’re currently at the crossroads deciding between an electric guitar and bass, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the differences, subtleties and demands of each guitar type. Don’t worry, though! We’re here to talk you through the core differences between an electric guitar and a bass. Electric guitars are most commonly equipped with 6-strings (although various configurations and set-ups do exist), whereas a bass is commonly a four-stringed instrument. Although the difficulty level and demands of both an electric guitar and bass are ultimately dependant on the depths to which the player wishes to explore, an electric guitar allows for more freedom in a traditional band setting, utilising its higher tone and versatility to create complex solo pieces.
If you’re a natural leader and looking to take centre stage, an electric guitar could be the ideal instrument to suit your personality. Some of the most famous names in music earned their hall of fame status by shredding an electric guitar; Slash, Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards to name just a few!
