Does it really make a lot of difference? I can understand that the quality of the electronics will mak a difference to the quality of the sound, or how long the components last and so on, but not the effect of the wood.
As I understand it (well, in fact, I don't have a clue, but we'll keep quiet about that for now ) the strings are pinged, that sends little waves in the direction of the pick-ups and the sounds are amplified and modified and the genius that is ChilliJam or whatever is produced.
Do the pick-ups also transmit vibrations from the body or something? If I were to change the lovely basswood body on my guitar for solid mahogany or particleboard, would it sound any different?
This is a genuine question!
