So, I was just thinking the other day, would it be possible to make a neck out of metal? Like, the whole thing, fingerboard and everything...

I'm not gonna try, but would it work at all? Might look cool, if it was shiny

It'd probably sound really bad, be very heavy, and kill you if you touch it on a hot summer day.

But you could be like, hey my guitar's pimped out dude and like get all the chicks... 'cause neck's made out of metal...
Signatures fucking suck.

Metal contracts and expands way too much to be used for a guitar neck. It would be impossible to keep it in tune.

arent the Parker Fly guitars' necks made from graphite or something like that?

Their fretboards are made out of a carbon-composite...nearly graphite.

all metal would:

-sound AWFUL
-all the reasons people mentioned.
-there'd be no advantages, so its not like sacrificing somethign to get a unique effect or something
