1931 by George Beauchamp when he worked for Rickenbacker guitars , it was nicknamed the frying pan
Wood. Different types like Mahogany, Maple, rosewoods, etc.
The Gibson Guitar corporation produced the first electric guitar in 1922 and it was called the Gibson L-5. Gibson Guitar corporation was founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
it originated in America from a Swiss Immigrant named Adolph Rickenbacker's company. The first electric guitar was made in California in 1931 and nicknamed the frying pan. T…his was invented by two key people Adolph Rickenbacher and George Beauchamp. George is the main inventor and holds the patent for electric guitars and single coil pickups, He died in 1941 of a heart attack before the sales of guitars sky rocketed.
wood for 90% of the guitar , the other 10% comprises of metals, plastic and magnets to make the bridge, tuner and various electronics. so a great example maple neck which …is wood rosewood for the fingerboard which is the second wood mahogany body which is another wood nickle for the frets the parts we place our fingers ceramic/plastic/copper for the pickups without getting into extreme detail plastic for the pick guard and knobs various metals for solder, pots and so forth for the electronics inside it to make it work and the guitar to play properly and in tune. thats a good idea if you're doing it for a project or whatever.

I don't realy know, but I spose people were getting a bit board of the acustic; not that a dislike the acustc guitar, it's awesome. I dunno, people just kina needed smothing n…ew, I guess.
That'll be as hard to answer as who invented the first ever acoustic guitars or who sang on the first ever record. This is one question that'll be extremely hard for anyone to… answer... maybe first recorded one you'll get but yeah I doubt anyone will have an exact answer as before the 1930s it was your word against say mine and proof was harder to come across right.
single coils are made by winding wires round poles, the more winds the higher the output, humbuckers are made by placing two single coils together with reverse polarity whic…h cancels guitar hum
There are many different types of electric guitars, and they are made with a variety of materials, including plastic.
The instruments commonly acknowledged as the earlierst electric guitars were made of wood in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and served largely as prototypes for commercially …produced instruments. They include the Rickenbacker "Frying Pan" lap steel and the ViviTone guitars designed by Lloyd Loar. ViviTone instruments were never produced in large numbers, but Rickenbacker's production version of the "Frying Pan" was made from a single piece of cast aluminium and became an immediate success, remaining in production into the 1950s. The earliest production "Spanish-style" electric guitar was also by Rickenbacker, made from two moulded Bakelite (phenolic resin) components bolted together. Shortly afterwards, many other companies started fitting their existing wooden archtop guitars with magnetic pickups, and this remained the standard construction method until Fender introduced their solid-slab-bodied Broadcaster (later renamed the Telecaster) in 1950. Although made from wood, this borrowed the two-part bolted construction from the earlier Rickenbacker Bakelite model.
