  • Published 1 month ago

An electric guitar is a guitar that requires external amplification in order to be heard at typical performance volumes, unlike a standard acoustic guitar. It uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals, which ultimately are reproduced as sound by loudspeakers.
MIM’s Telly Award-winning documentary, The Electric Guitar, tells the history of the electric guitar from the very beginning, including its most experimental period of the 1930s and 1940s, and gives a glimpse into how the electric guitar played an integral role in American music and culture and inspired emulation worldwide.
The documentary features interviews with Grammy Award–winning jazz guitarist George Benson, guitar historians and collectors, friends and family of the pioneers of the electric guitar, and more.
