There are several differences between electric bass and an acoustic guitar. A Bass Guitar has only four strings, which are thicker, while an acoustic guitar has thinner strings and has six of them.

An Electric Acoustic Guitar is an acoustic guitar with the addition of a pickup or transducer that enables plugging it in to an amplifier. Type your answer here...

An acoustic-electric guitar has a pickup. You are able to play it without an amp, as well as with one.

An electric guitar only plays good with an amp.

An acoustic electric guitar differs from a standard electric guitar in the fact that a standard electric guitar depends solely on the electricity of the amplifier to convert the string vibration. An acoustic electric guitar also has also a microphone which will magnify and convert the sound.

There really isn't a difference. A guitar strap is a guitar strap.

Electricity. The electric needs to have electricity and plugged into a amp to get the sound.

An Acoustic you can play with out an amp but you can't change the sound level for it or the tone. An electric you plug in to an amp and you can change the tone of the guitar or the volume. In my oppinion electric guitar is more fun to play.

electric guitar strings are simply made for the quality of the pick-ups if you put electric guitar strings on an acoustic guitar it will have a low quality sound and if you put acoustic guitar strings on an electric guitar you will be luck to get much sound at all.

First of all, a "bass-guitar" is not a "bass-guitar" it's a electric bass. To tell the difference between a electric bass and a guitar is the electric bass has a lower sound to fit into the beat and the guitar has a higher pitch sound, even a acoustic guitar.

Acoustic guitar is what it says acoustic, none electric makes the sound from the guitar body/chamber. Acoustic/electric or electro acoustic look the same as an acoustic but have a pic-up fitted inside the body to link to an amplifier. A Semi acoustic guitar looks more like an electric guitar but with a hollow body or chambered body with pick-ups mounted on the sound board of the guitar.

yes, the only difference between the two guitars is that one is mechanical

offcorse, but there is sound difference.

Yes, the only difference is the way they make sound, which is done by the body on an acoustic guitar and by magnetic pickups on the electric.

To change an acoustic guitar into an Electric guitar, you w

one has an amp jack and can change the sound it makes and one doesn't and can't

Guitar strings aren't seperated between electric and acoustic, the varieties are nylon, steel... etc.

An acoustic guitar has bronze wound steel strings, a classical guitar has nylon strings. also the classical guitar has a wider neck. A standard acoustic guitar has a slimmer neck. nylon strings are more crisp sounding, steel strings have a twang when played. SongScouting: A classical guitar is a type of acoustic guitar. A guitar is acoustic or electric. An acoustic guitar may be nylon strung or steel strung. A 12 String Guitar is also an acoustic guitar as it is not electric (unless you install pickups). A classical guitar does, indeed, have a wider neck.

The big difference between these types of guitar is that an electric is much quieter than an acoustic. In a high school class full of teenagers a student with an electric guitar will not be able to be heard by the teacher. This is a BIG detriment to one's progression with the instrument. Most classes require an acoustic guitar but technically you can still learn in a group setting with a quieter electric guitar.

An electric acoustic. A acoustic that can be hooked up to an amp.

There is no such thing as a "guitar". There's an acoustic guitar, electric guitar and classical guitar. They all have different sounds. Acoustics are usually for country music, electrics are usually for rock and classical guitars are specifically made for classic guitar.

Yes, you can plug an electric guitar into an acoustic amplifier. But I would suggest that you don't play at a high volume for a long period of time of the difference in impedence - an acoustic guitar (and bass and vocals) is low impedence, where an electric guitar (& keyboard) is high impedence.

If the electric acoustic guitar is equipped with the appropriate equipment for amplification, then the guitar is suitable for any amplifier.

An acoustic/electric guitar is an acoustic guitar with a pickup or microphone inside the sound hole. You are able to plug the guitar into an acoustic guitar amp allowing you to play louder or with effects, change the sound of the guitar.
