Electric guitars can be used for a range of musical styles, from classic rock tones of a Fender Strat through to the speedy playability of an Ibanez JEM via 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, and find yourself overwhelmed by the differences, subtleties and demands of each guitar type; don’t worry as we’ll talk you through a number of 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 center stage, an electric guitar is the ideal instrument for 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 tiny number of legendary electric guitarists.
