You will often hear the term voice when talking about electric guitar effects. Many effects are named after sounds that could be made with a human voice and are similar to the human voice. It is easy to see the similarities between the sound of an electric guitar and a human voice. This makes sense when you hear the effects and sounds generated.

Graphics equalizer is a term that you might hear in modern hi-fi equipment and digital music players. If you buy an electric guitar with an amplifier unit, graphics equalization may be an option. What is graphics equalization and how does it impact the sound or performance of an electric guitar?

Each note of a guitar is produced according to the assigned frequencies. Each frequency corresponds to a different note on the scale. Higher frequencies produce higher pitch notes, while lower frequencies make the lowest notes. 

Graphic equalization can create distortion effects by capping frequencies. Equalization can be done as an integral part of the guitar, using pedals and levers that alter the signal to the amplifier, or as a part of its amplification unit.
