01 Why Aluminium ?
Aluminium guitars have a natural resonance. I do use 7075 T651 which is NASA certified. This aluminium is 60 percent stronger and 60 percent harder (Brinell hardness) than 6061 Aluminium. This makes the sound even brighter and piano-ish, Mogwai-ish, Shellac-ish and Arab on radar-ish.
02 Why do you do a mix between High pressured composite wood and aluminium?
Because of the look and the sound. The composite wood is highly dense (sound) and tainted in the mass (look).
03 What if I scratch my guitar?
For the aluminum you can buff it out. For extreme scratches, you may need to wet sand it out. For the wood, just apply a coat of oil. As the wood is tainted in the mass you won’t see the scratch so much.
04 How do I clean it?
For the Aluminum clean it with polish. For the body you can use wax or a bit of oil.
05 How do you make the neck and the body?
I use a mix between CNC waterjet cutting and CNC milling for precision and luthier technique with manual tools to finish it. It is exactly like working with wood but with aluminium.
