AN ESSENTIAL FOR LIVE AND STUDIO
Electro-acoustic guitars are fitted with a pickup with is immensely handy when performing live. A conventional type of pickup is the piezo electric which relies on its own battery power supply, housed in a pre-amp usually located on the side of the guitar. This type of guitar is ideal for live performance as well as the studio!
ELECTRO-ACOUSTICS - BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
This type of guitar offers the best of both worlds - you can play them unplugged just like any ordinary acoustic, or plug it to a P.A. system or acoustic guitar amp when performing live. Unlike traditional acoustics, they often have a cutaway design, which gives the player easier access to the upper frets.

Semi-Acoustic guitars are in fact electric guitars - with a hollow or semi-hollow body for more acoustic resonance, but which still require to be plugged. An Electro-Acoustic guitar is first and foremost an acoustic guitar like any other and can be played unplugged, but they happen to also come equipped, as we mentioned previously, with a pickup system so they can be plugged into PA or amp if needs be.
