How electric guitars work

This evening we watched a TV show that we have never seen before. I think it may be a new show. It is on the Discovery Channel...the channel we watch most. The show was called Some Assembly Required. The show took you through the Gibson Guitar factory. It was really interesting. You saw the whole process of making a guitar from a pile of wood to a finished guitar. I obviously learned a lot from the show but the big thing that I learned was that there are magnets inside of electric guitars and the vibrations of the strings is picked up by the magnets.
OK, it's late at night and I am having a difficult time explaining this. I'll try again tomorrow. Perhaps I need to learn even more about this.
