Guitar Bodies

Get yourself the perfect body

A guitar body is the main guitar part to take note of when selecting your instrument. The body attaches to the guitar neck and there are plenty of different styles available. The guitar body that you choose will largely depend on the style of music that you want to play, and with a huge range of finishes available, there has never been a better time for you to find one right here on eBay.

Stratocaster Guitar Body

The Fender Stratocaster body is quite possibly one of the most recognisable guitar bodies out there. The Stratocaster gives you the chance to play music from a huge variety of genres, including soul, rock, folk, country, blues and even R&B as well. A guitar body that is shaped like a Stratocaster will usually come with a tremolo and this will give you the chance to change the pitch of the guitar by raising the arm up and down. Guitarists who played the Fender Stratocaster guitar body shape include Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Holly.

Offset Guitar Body

An offset guitar body includes three different styles. You have the Mustang, Jazz Master and Jaguar. Even though all of them have very different body styles, they all have a jangly sound and the bright and clear highs are one of the reasons why people choose them as their number one guitar body of choice. An offset guitar body is well suited to rhythm guitar, and it has been chosen by guitarists such as Kurt Cobain, Johnny Marr and even Kevin Shields.

Les Paul Guitar Body

The Les Paul guitar body is mostly associated with classic rock. It has the ability to give off a very clear tone and it has the ability to cover nearly every range with flawless efficiency. It can provide great highs, lows and more, but it is more suited to rock and metal rather than other types of music.
