Feature-Based Classification of Electric Guitar Types

The classification of musical instruments of instruments of the same type is a challenging case of study. In this paper we conduct feature-based machine learning experiments to classify electric guitar recordings from different manufacturers and models. The Constant-Q Transform features and the Support Vector Machine algorithm obtained an accuracy of 95% in a binary classification task of guitars from two manufacturers, and 78% in a multiclass problem with four classes, distinguishing specific models from two different manufacturers.
