An electric guitar uses a pickup to convert the string vibrations into an electrical signal which can then be amplified. At the time of the instrument's invention in the 1930s it was necessary to find a way for a guitar to be able to be heard when played as part of a big band. The electric guitar became the most important instrument in the pop music of the 1950s and 1960s. It has evolved into an instrument capable of many sounds and styles.
