I'd think it sound bright... and it might be heavy. Chamber it out and I think that would be perfectly acceptable.

And by chamber I mean like weight relieving ones, not a hollow body.


There was a thread a while back where someone did that and I forget what it was called but there is a company that builds guitars with aluminum bodies. So if you are comfortable wit metal work the go for it. You'll probably get some interesting results. Be sure to chamber the body plenty though because otherwise it'll weigh a ton.

Actually aluminum is known for being light weight (at least compared to other metals). So who knows, it might not be that heavy.
i just realized something, if you connect a ground wire to the body in the cavity somewhere it'd be the best shielding known to man! you also wouldn't need to ground the bridge because your body and bridge would all be connected so the whole entire thing would be grounded.
