Full size electric guitars are musical instruments that are designed to be played using an amplifier. They typically have a solid body made of wood or a composite material, with a neck that attaches to the body and a fretted fingerboard on top. The strings are usually made of steel and are played by plucking or strumming them with a pick or the fingers. Electric guitars use electromagnetic pickups to convert the vibration of the strings into an electrical signal, which is then sent to an amplifier to produce sound. Full size electric guitars come in a variety of styles and shapes, including solid body, semi-hollow body, and hollow body designs, and are popular in a wide range of music genres, from rock and metal to jazz and blues.
