Learning the Ins and Outs of the Electric Guitar

I’ve been playing the guitar for about 10 years now and I have never cared to take notice into what makes the guitar a guitar.  As long as I had a cable in between my amp and guitar and cranked everything, I was happy.  Sad, I know, but it is the truth.  Until recently.

Now I’m starting to understand what those two pickup thingys are.  I’m actually going to replace my humbucker with a real  Duncan, I just haven’t decided on the model yet.  I haven’t been too satisfied with the sound my guitar is outputting, and according to some wiser friends, a cheap and effective way of resolving that is to trash the stock pickup for a better one.

I have a Schecter Diamond Elite 006.  This was a surprise Christmas gift from my better half.  Along with my 30 watt Marshall Amp, I was in business that year.  About a year later, I added to my collection by purchasing my D-03 acoustic guitar.

Anyway, I am finally becoming fascinated with how the electric guitar works.  As a mostly acoustic player, the versatility of the electric guitar is really appealing.
