electric guitar pickupsResearchers from McGill University and Yamaha have collaborated to study the impact of electric guitar pickup designs on sound quality. Their work, presented at a recent Acoustical Society of America meeting, shows how variables like wire type, coil winding, and magnet strength affect the guitar’s timbre. By understanding these factors, they aim to refine guitar design and reduce development time, enhancing sound customization for guitarists. This research could lead to new, unique sounds for electric guitars.
