  • Aluminum guitars?

    I can't imagine they sound good in comparison to wood though I have no real clue. Anyone use done? What are the tonal qualities?

      Mark Farner sounded pretty good back in the early 70's with his Veleno aluminum guitar :thu:

          Aluminium I don't know, but LePape's steelbody guitars are stellar - and quite "woody" sounding:

            The important question though is, do you pronounce it:

            'alooominum',

            or:

            'aluminium'

            ?

                <div class="signaturecontainer">i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. &quot;It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.<br />

                  A friend of mine had one of those aluminum Teles with the American Flag graphic. My memory is foggy since it was about 15 years ago but I do remember being surprised at how good it sounded. Your obvious thought is "it will sound metallic". It wasn't like that though.

                              My Reverend sounds pretty sweet to me, and it's the lightest guitar I've ever seen.
