WORLD'S FIRST ELECTRIC GUITAR
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who created the world's first electric guitar?

You can credit the creation of the electric guitar to Hawaiian music.

Ever since the invention of the guitar sometime around the 1500's musicians have been looking for ways to amplify their music. Finally a Hawaiian musician living in Los Angeles found the solution.

In 1931 George Beauchamp and engineer Adolph Rickenbacker designed and built the world's first electric guitar.

The guitar was nicknamed 'Rickenbacker's Frying Pan' because, well, it looked like a frying pan.

George Beauchamp and  Adolph Rickenbacker finally got a patent for the electric guitar in 1937.
