Why Are Guitars Called Axes ?

The guitar got its name from the words “guitarra” and “guitar”. The first word guitarra comes from the Spanish word for guitar, which literally means stringed instrument. The second word, “guitar”, comes from the Portuguese word for guitar, which literally translates to little guitar.

The term axe is used in a variety of ways to describe various instruments that are used in different ways. For example, an axe is a kind of tool used to chop down trees with a blade attached at one end. It can also be used as a weapon to attack or defend oneself against an enemy on the battlefield.

This term is also used in music to refer to a specific type of guitar that has six strings and resembles an acoustic guitar but has electric pickups instead of acoustic ones. This type of guitar has been around since at least the 1920s when Les Paul developed the first solid body electric guitar for himself and his recording partner Mary Ford’s act at Capitol Records. In fact, Les Paul called this style of guitar an “axe” because he wanted it to sound like how people thought electric guitars should sound when they were first invented back in 1931 by Gibson (which was based off their archtop design).
