The Nut supports and guides the string, and is usually made of plastic, ebony or ivory.
FRETS Frets divide up the neck of the guitar into little areas that across the length of a string, we perceive as spacing the notes 1 semitone apart. When you fret a string, you are essentially altering the length of that string, which correspondingly creates an incrementally higher or lower note.
A pickup is essentially a magnet. A coil of wire that, when a string is plucked, generates a magnetic flux caused by the vibrating strings above it. This signal is then output to the controls section and then into the amp.
Volume and tone controls allow us to fine tune the sound our pickups are generating, such as by balancing volume or reducing high frequencies to give a more mellow sound.
