How do guitar pick ups work?

Answer

The way in which guitar pickups work is by allowing certain strings to play music while prohibiting others from doing so. This will give your music a unique sound to it.
1 Additional Answer
Guitar Pick ups are like small microphones mounted in the pick guard of electric guitars that pick up the sound of the string. With a cable attached from the guitar to the amplifier the pickups then magnify the sound of the string through the amplifier.
