The Aluminum builds coming out of small shops is so amazing check this one out!

That is pretty incredible looking, but for that price I'd expect nothing less. :ph34r:

This is a great time to be alive in terms of gear. The guitars, amps, and pedals being built and sold are incredible, and the level of customization you can get makes them even cooler.

Agreed so much good gear being made on all fronts as for this guitar it is not for the faint of pocket book but what would Gibson charge $10k plus I would bet!

I have a thing for aluminum guitars for quite some time now and if you get a chance to play one go for it. It all started for me playing a Travis Bean in a shop when they were just a few hundred bucks, I went back to buy that guitar and it was gone.... been saving and wanting one ever since! Well used they are pretty expensive so I decided to get a more modern take and I am so glad I did!

Current roster from top to bottom.

EGC Tyranny with stock SSS pups
Normandy Guitars with Aluminati neck with stock SH pups
Liquid Metal Guitar stock with SH pups
Normandy Guitars Archtop with stock HH pups
EGC Standard with stock HHH pups

That white guitar (with black strips) has really got my attention.
Are these your personal collections?
Would love to know your personal favorite.

Yes these are mine. I just sold the white one that is Standard model Electrical guitar company or EGC amazing guitar I just prefer single coils. As for my favorite and they are all ready y good but it's a tie between the Bigsby Tele from Liquid Metal and the three Pick up EGC all Chrome. The EGC one has three single coils in big box covers. Both of these guitars are as nice as I have ever played! The Flying V I just got is on par with these as well. I have quite a few more builds in the works so more to follow!

Not really a fan of the rivet things, but :-*

If I could go back in time and 'start over' I'd probably play with guitars like this more, as it is I can only hope my kids get into guitars like this...

One could only hope kids get into it! I know it is so much easier to learn to play than it used to be and entry level gear is so much better too!

Yeah the it's hollow so the rivets are a weight trade I think? The V is weird I have never had one before so that was part of the inspiration for the build. Plus how many all aluminum V are there? I have never seen one. This thing is so light and well balanced, surprisingly comfortable and fun to play. The Stetsbar puts it over the top.
