Les Paul invented one of the first solid-body guitars, yet Gibson did not show their Les Paul guitar prototypes to the public because they did not feel it would catch on. Fender’s Broadcaster (later called the Telecaster) was the first mass-produced solid-body guitar, introduced in 1948, five years after Les Paul’s prototype. Soon after, the Gibson Les Paul appeared to compete with the Broadcaster. The Fender Stratocaster, which was released in 1954 and became immensely famous among artists in the 1960s and 1970s due to its wide tonal capabilities and comfortable ergonomics, is another notable solid-body design.

The most common type of electric guitar is the solid body electric. Semi Acoustic Guitars are popular in the jazz world as well as rock and pop. Semi-Hollow electrics feature a center block to help control feedback and sustain. 7 String and 8 String electric guitars are very popular for playing heavy music. Mini electric guitars are great if you need a guitar on the move. There are also shorter scale electrics available that are great starting points for kids.
