In 1931 the Electro String Company was founded by Paul Barth, George Beauchamp and Adolph Rickenbacker, and developed the first electric guitars marketed to the general public. They made their guitars from cast aluminum and were played on a person's lap using a steel slide much like today's steel guitar. Because of their unusual material, they were affectionately called "Frying Pans." The early success of the frying pans prompted the Gibson guitar company to build their first electric guitar, the ES-150 which is a legend today. The First Solid-Body Electric Guitar n Electric guitars were quickly becoming popular, even though there was a major problem with their construction. Their bodies would vibrate due to the amplified sounds coming through the speakers they were played into, causing what we know as feed-back. The obvious remedy was to build a guitar made with a solid body which wouldn't vibrate so easily. As with most innovations, there is controversy over who invented the first solid -body electric guitar. Guitar legend Les Paul in the 1940's developed his affectionately called "The sog" solid-body guitar by attaching a Gibson neck to a solid piece of wood…a railroad tie, hence the name "Log." Around this same time, guitarist Merle Travis and engineer Paul Bigsby developed a solid-body electric guitar that resembled the solid-body guitars that we're so familiar with today.
The first electric guitars used in jazz were hollow archtop acoustic guitar bodies with electromagnetic transducers. By 1932 an electrically amplified guitar was commercially available. An early commercially successful solid-body electric guitar was the Fender Esquire in 1950.
