So, I've been wondering about solid body electric
guitars lately. When I was in school I had a truly
junk solid body electric*, whereas one friend had
a Fender Esquire (single-pickup version of Telecaster)
and another one had a Jaguar. Several guys had Strats.
Then there's the Gibson SG and Flying V and the Les
Paul. And oh so many more.
My question: does the shape and thickness of the
bodies affect the sound at all or is it just cosmetic
and only the strings/pickups/other electronics
make a difference in the actual sound?
* I eventually bought a Guild Starfire in 1974 for
$350. I sold it in 1981 for $350. Grrrrr.
