OMG All aluminium Jazzmaster!

Post by Black Cat Bone » Fri May 23, 2008 3:41 am

Found this on the Myspace site for Electrical Guitars company - a US company specialising in aluminium guitars and necks including Travis Bean-ish repros.  I couldn't link to the image so saved and photobucketed:

Personally I love it but then again I like the idea of Travis Beans....Opnions?

I wish they'd given it a pickguard. It looks incomplete without one.

I personally find it odd that they retained a white plastic tip on the whammy! Especially given the Black Pup covers - but it does kinda work anyway.

yeah it'd look awesome with a brushed aluminium one, or maybe even gold anodized...

I like it.

I'm pretty interested in one of those laser guitars, too.

Wouldn't the ridiculous expansion/contraction rate of aluminum make that thing drop right out of tune with any temperature shift?
