What are electric guitars with alternative designs?



Different-shaped electric guitars are those that have a body that departs from the classic designs of more popular electric guitars, such as the Stratocaster, Telecaster, or Les Paul. These guitars tend to have more angular, curved or asymmetrical shapes, which give them a more modern and original look. Some of these shapes are inspired by iconic models from the 50s and 60s, such as the Gibson SG, Flying V or Explorer. Others are the result of innovation and experimentation by manufacturers and players, such as D´Angelico Guitars, which combine elements from different types of guitars to create more versatile instruments adapted to different musical genres.


How to choose an electric guitar with a different shape?



When choosing a differently shaped electric guitar, there are several factors to consider, including budget, experience level, personal style, and desired sound. Here are some tips to help you decide:

  •      The budget: depending on how much you want to spend, you will be able to access different ranges of quality and benefits. In general, cheaper guitars tend to have simpler materials and components, while more expensive ones offer more durability, comfort, and versatility. However, there are options for all budgets, from cheap but functional guitars to high-end guitars with luxury finishes.
  •      The level of experience: If you are a beginner, you may want to start with a guitar that is easy to play and adjust, one that does not require a lot of maintenance or frequent adjustments. For example, a guitar with a fixed bridge or single tremolo may be more suitable than one with a floating bridge or Floyd Rose. You can also opt for a guitar with a comfortable, slim neck that makes it easy to access the higher frets. If you are advanced or professional, you can search for a guitar that suits your specific preferences and needs, such as the type of pickups, the radius of the fingerboard or the thickness of the neck.
  •      Personal style: The differently shaped electric guitar is an instrument that reflects the personality and taste of the musician who plays it. Therefore, it is important to choose a guitar that you like both aesthetically and sonically. There are many different models of electric guitars with different shapes, with various designs and colors. You can be inspired by your rock idols or create your own style. The important thing is that you feel comfortable and proud of your guitar.
  •      The Desired Sound: The sound of a differently shaped electric guitar depends largely on the pickups you have. The pickups are the devices that pick up the vibrations of the strings and convert them into electrical signals. There are two main types of pickups: single coils, which produce a bright, clear sound, and double coils, or humbuckers, which produce a thicker, more powerful sound. For rock, the most common is to use humbucker pickups, which also reduce noise and interference. Within the humbucker pickups, there are different models and brands, which can vary the tone and output of the guitar. Some of the most popular are the EMG, the Seymour Duncan or the DiMarzio. You can also combine different pickups on the bridge and neck, to get different nuances.
