Parts of Guitar In Detail
So I have prepared for you an image that tells you all the vocabulary you need to know about the guitar.
(It's always nice to know a little more on this piece of wood that we love so much)
There are 6 mechanical keys for guitars with 6 strings.
Every rope has its mechanics.
Their role is to stretch or relax the strings according to a winding mechanism in order to adjust their tension to finally tune the guitar.
The head represents the end of the handle.
This is where the mechanics and the mark of the guitar are.
The truss rod is a metal bar inside the handle that covers its entire length.
Its purpose is to make the handle more convex or concave and then stabilize its shape.
It is rubbed on when one wishes to correct the metallic noises resulting from the ropes which come into contact with the frets during their vibration.
Some guitars have none, like those of the Vigier brand for example which have a carbon rod ;..
The Headspring is a mini bar made of wood, plastic or metal that is placed at the junction of the handle and the Headspring.
It serves as a support for the ropes thanks to the small anchors it contains.
The frettes (or bars) are small metal bars that delimit the boxes present on the handle as well as the different notes.
Markers are usually symbolized by dots and are used to locate us geographically on our instrument.
HANDLE / TOUCH
The handle is the big piece of wood that joins the body of the guitar and the head.
It is on the sleeve that the key is placed.
It represents a slab of fine wood on which are the markers, the frets and on which we place our fingers to play.
The belt fasteners are two metal endpieces screwed onto the body of the guitar that allow to fix a strap in order to play standing
The pickguard is a plate, usually made of plastic, screwed on the body of the guitar that serves to protect it from the blows of a pick.
The vibrato Rod (also known as whammy bar) is a rod attached to the easel / floyd allowing the tension of the strings to be varied by tilting it forward or backward.
Think of it as a lever that varies the pitch of the notes played to create play effects.
Microphones (or pickups) are without a doubt the most important part of a guitar.
They're at the pickguard level, before the start of the round.
They are electromagnetic sensors that capture the sound of the vibrations of the strings and model it according to the type and brand of microphones installed.
The selector is a small rod that protrudes from the body of the guitar and is located at the level of the pickguard, under the microphones.
It allows you to select the microphone you want to use.
The potentiometers (or potards) are control buttons, often in the number of 3, to refine your sound (low / high and volume).
The pontets are small metal rectangles on the easel / floyd that are used to adjust the accuracy of the guitar.
This is called intonation tuning.
Each rope his saddle, same principle as the mechanical.
The intonation setting and tuning are the two components for the accuracy of the guitar.
The easel is a large piece of metal attached to the body of the guitar, on which are the pontets, the vibrato rod and in which the strings are attached.
The jack socket is an input socket where we connect our jack cable connecting the guitar to an AMP or a multi-effect.
The body of the guitar is one of the main parts of a guitar.
It is made of wood and it is on it that we find the microphones, the potentiometers, the easel, the selector, the jack plug …
It can be full, partially full or hollow (as on a dry guitar > resonance box)
