The parts of the electric guitar are extremely similar to the parts of the acoustic guitar. Don't forget that you'll need a small practice amp to go along with your electric guitar. You don't need all the “bells and whistles” at first, just a small 20 watt (or smaller) amp will provide all the volume you need. Try to buy one with a headphone jack so you can jam until all hours of the night and not wake the neighbors!
