However, the feedback created by traditional hollow-bodied guitars prompted some players and makers to try and develop more suitable designs. In fact, both Vivi-Tone and Rickenbacker created what were essentially solid-bodied Spanish guitars in 1934 and 1935 respectively to try and solve this problem. Vivi-Tone’s model used a sheet of plywood over a wooden body, while Rickenbacker’s Electro Spanish was made of bakelite.

So of these guys, and some of the famous builders and luthiers we’ll get to in a moment, who deserves the credit of being the first to do away with the old-fashioned hollow body and make a full-bodied guitar? It’s a question that’s almost as common and as heated as the debate over the best electric guitar player.

Almost as if it was destiny
