Sound needs a media to propagate. Sound can not propagate in a vacuum. Sound waves, unlike light, are essentially compression waves and the sound in order to move from one place to other needs molecules to compress and decompress against, hence the wave is transmitted. In a vacuum, there are no molecules. Hence no sound.

How is the sound that a guitar makes - produced?

when a guitar string is moved or plucked , a movement is produced along the length of the string . this vibration makes a sound wave and a guitar pick up, which is a electronic sensor device , detects this sound wave. the sound wave is re produced as an electrical signal and the electrical signal is amplified by an external amplifier

Can a sound wave produce a magnetic field?

sound wave cannot produce magnetic field because magnetic field is created due to flow of electric currents sound is a mechanical wave, sound is produced due to vibration in a medium so sound wave cannot create electric current or magnetic field
