An electric guitar is a guitar that uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitarist strums, fingerpicks, or taps the strings. The pickup used to sense the vibration generally uses electromagnetic induction to do so, though other technologies exist. In any case, the signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is sent to a guitar amplifier before being sent to the speaker/speakers, which converts it into music.

The sound can be electronically altered by to change the timbre from the guitar. Often, the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion and "overdrive", the latter effect is considered a key element of electric blues guitar music and rock guitar playing.
