Designs of an Electric Guitar - Body Shapes and Woods

Electric Guitars are made with a wide variety of shapes and woods, or a wide variety of reasons.

Body shapes are not just cosmetic, many of the shapes and features of guitars to search some functioning purpose.

Cutaways
If the body is cutaway where it joins the neck, this helps a musician access the upper frets of the neck. There are two types of cutaway: single, as in the Gibson Les Paul or the Fender Telecaster, and double, as in the Fender Stratocaster or the Gibson SG.

Body Contour
This refers to where the guitar body is sculpted to make it fit more comfortably with the human body. A good example is the Fender Stratocaster, which is contoured at the back (called the 'tummy contour') and on the front (called the 'forearm contour').

Balance and Weight
A good body shape will be balanced weightwise, so the guitar sits well when worn with a strap without tilting toward the headstock or the body. The larger or thicker bodies, especially those made of heavier woods, can be very heavy and tiring to play.

Guitar Body Woods

The look of each piece of wood is unique; even within one tree species, pieces vary from one to the next in grain pattern, color weight, and density. The sonic properties of different woods and their different and densities, vary dramatically. Every once sustained well and have a brighter, more articulate sound. Light weight with scant sound, indistinct or muddy, especially in guitars with hum-bucking pickups. Medium-weight woods fault in the middle and are the traditional preference. In terms of weight vs. wood types, dense woods such as maple and mahogany are heavier, while medium-density wood such as poplar, alder and ash producing lighter guitar. Some common wood for bodies are listed below.

Alder has a lighter weight and a full sound. Its natural color is light tan with little or no distinct grain lines. Alder has been the main Fender body wood for many years.

Ash offers a very nice balance of brightness and warmth with a lot of 'pop'. It is a fairly lightweight wood with a stronger grain than alder. Many of the 1950s Fender's were made of ash.

Basswood is a lighter weight would. It is white and has a warm tone.

Mahogany is a medium to heavy weight woods with a fine grain. Its tone is warm and full, with good sustain.

Maple is a very hard, heavy and dense wood. It is white and has a bright tone with good bite and attack.

Flame, fiddle-back, or tiger maple has a grain that looks like stripes

Quilted Maple is a wood that has a billowing cloud appearance.

Bird's- eye maple wood has he appeared in its of small spots.

Poplar has a weight and sound similar to alder.

After reading this I hope you have a better understanding of why guitars are given different shapes and made from different woods. With so many different varieties available, manufacturers are able to provide consumers with guitars that are fitting to their particular sound and attraction.
