Acoustic Vs. Electric Guitar





ACOUSTIC GUITAR
It is hollow, and is characterized by the presence of a sound hole that you see on the face of the guitar. It has six strings and produces a loud sound when you strike the chords. Acoustic guitars are relatively larger than electric guitars.

The body of the guitar is hollow, that helps in amplifying the sounds the strings produce. Due to the hollow body, acoustic guitars tend to be larger than their electric counterparts, though they are not necessarily heavier. 

It is possible to electronically amplify an acoustic guitar by adding pickups or microphones to the guitar body.


ELECTRIC GUITAR
Uses electronics to amplify the sound produced from plucking the strings. The sound is routed to an amplifier or mixer, and played back via a speaker. Electric guitars are usually solid, and do not feature a sound hole.

Also, due to the lack of a sound hole, it is not possible to play electric guitars, or rather, hear the sound produced by electric guitars properly, if they are not plugged in to an amplifier.
