Theirs a custom shop in my Area that makes guitars out of recycled Aluminum, from airplanes I think. They say they have have a rather warm sound, even though most would think they'd have a real tinny and bright one. Has anyone played a Aluminum guitar, or own one? How do they sound, and how do they hold up over time?

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

They get a descent sound, but they're heavy as a f***ing brick.

sorry Gregs1020, but altough the custom shops usually make hollowbodies, they are just normal hollowbodies made out of Aluminum. also to pwrmax, I don't care if it's heavy, I actually like a heavier guitar, just wondering how they sound and how they last. If, and this is a very large if, I was to pick one up, it be used to play blues.

Guys, it's not a Dobro.

TS - I've heard that aluminium guitars get excellent resonance. I can't see why it'd be heavy though, seeing as aluminium is pretty light...

Indeed I did. I used to be really into all that jazz when I was younger, but the name kind of stuck as most userboards don't have anybody called that. Tastes kind of changed over time, but I'm now living in Korea, so I guess not that much!

I like twangy stuff for slide, if it was a plain acoustic I would think it was terrible

I believe the place is Normandy guitars. I'm not a big fan of a clangy, or twangy tone, but they say that their very warm sounding. Unfortunatly, my computer won't load their site. Does anyone know about how much a decent build would cost?
