Pretty much the first electric guitar was the Rickenbacker "Frying Pan", an aluminium Hawaiian guitar (lap steel) from the 1920s. The Gibson ES-150 was the first mass-produced Electric Spanish (ES) guitar, a standard Gibson acoustic modified with a single coil pickup (nicknamed the "Charlie Christian pickup," after the jazz guitarist who is credited as the first to play electric lead guitar on records). The first solid bodied electic guitar that was offered in a catalog as a standard model is generally recognised as another Rickenbacker, in the late 1940s. By the time that Les Paul was shopping around his Log (prototype solid bodied guitar), Paul Bigsby had already produced a one-off single cutaway solidbody for the country singer/guitaris Merle Travis. This guitar, which was seen in and around So. Calif. for some time, is generally regarded as the inspiration for the Fender Telecaster, released in 1949/50. The Gibson Les Paul model did not appear until 1952.

Re: plez help...who invented the electric guitar

: : : i need 2 no for a school assignment who invented the electric guitar

the electric guirar was "morphed" or "mutated" if you will. For the crowds, the acustic was not lous enough. People began making their uitars with built in Mics. eventually people realived that by playing with the input to the transistor, the tone could be changed. After a few years, people put knobs on their guitars that changed the eletrical flow. Eventually they created what we now call the electric guitar....Help you at all?

when was the acustic guitar made?I need to know now its for my class.

all i need to now is the date and place

I know the person who made the Guitar

A man by the name of Bart Neddler. In 1967 working for the company of Lister and friends.

Les Paul, and Leo Fender

Re: plez help...who invented the electric guitar

Albert Einstein (sp?)

Re: plez help...who invented the electric guitar

: Albert Einstein (sp?)It's not know specifically, but both "Leo" and "Les Paul" (among others) were goin' at it at the same time. The 'solid body' electric bass (Fender 'P' [Precision] was already being built and Leo Fender held/holds the patent. So, the Fender Precision solid body electric bass, legally, was invented by "Fender". To clear up 'this' up, the "Fender Telecaster" bass was identical, visually, to the first "Fender Precisions". This I know for a fact.

dist is right.

Les Paul actually 'made' the first electric. Leo was the first to mass produce 'his' version of it. Totally based on Les Paul's handmade design of the solid body. Apart from that. Gibson made electric hollow-bodies WAYYYY before Leo got started. Sorry but dist was right.

Classic vs. Standard Les Paul

I have a 1999 LP Classic that I'm thinking about selling to buy a Standard. Basically I can get a Standard for the same price as the Classic which right now is a fantastic deal considering the price of new LP Standards. The main differences are obviously going to be the neck and the 500T vs. 498T pickups. Does anyone have any input on this "upgrade?" I'm figuring that down the line the Standard will be worth more anyhow and that the Standard will give me less harsh clean tones in the bridge pick-up...

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Classic vs. Standard Les Paul

I own a Classic and have played a Standard, and actually, I think you get nicer clean tones on the Classic's bridge pickup. This, of course, depends on how you've got your amp set up.

I really think the Classic is a better guitar in general (it's beyond me why they're less expensive), but you're right, the Standard will probably be worth more. Still, I don't think it's a major upgrade, especially for the newer Gibsons... The quality is coming down pretty badly.
