    Acoustic Electric

    When choosing an acoustic guitar online, one of the most important factors to consider is its purpose. If you plan to play for a crowd or want to record what you play, an acoustic-electric guitar is a good choice. LAWK STAR Guitars sells acoustic-electric guitars online by Breedlove, Gretsch and Paul Reed Smith at competitive prices.

    The difference between a traditional acoustic guitar and an electric-acoustic guitar is the electronic pickup system and pre-amplifier. The built-in electronics allow you to plug in a sound system or amplifier without distorting the guitar’s sound or hindering your mobility as you play. When you don’t have an electric-acoustic guitar plugged in, you can play it just like a regular acousticguitar.  

    Electric-Acoustic Guitar Buying Guide

    Wood Type: As with traditional acoustic guitars, the wood type, or tonewood, affects how the instrument sounds. Guitars with laminate tops tend to have a basic tone that doesn’t vibrate as much as a solid-top guitars. Most acoustic guitars are made from spruce. Those made from rare or exotic woods tend to be more expensive, but don’t necessarily always sound better.

    Electronics: Active electronics: Most electric-acoustic guitars have piezo transducers, a type of pickup that detects the vibrations within the body or bridge. They generally prevent signal losses under the saddle and come with a battery-powered pre-amp and three equalization bands. Dual-source systems: A dual system generally has a piezo transducer and a microphone inside the guitar’s body. This is ideal for those who pluck strings.

    String Type: Electric-acoustic guitars come with nylon or steel strings. Nylon strings produce a mellow tone, like the kind heard in flamenco music. Steel strings are more common and produce brighter, louder tones.

    When shopping for an electric-acoustic guitar, make comfort and your personal preferences your top priorities. At LAWK STAR Guitars, we know that when a guitar perfectly suits you, the love will last forever.
