    idk...i have no idea how aluminium would sound in reality.
    I don't think it'd be like wood where chambering also affects the sound.

    To the thread starter, have you played an aluminium guitar before?

    na i've never played a aluminium guitar before

    not everyone has driven a ferrari but we all know it is awesome right??

    anyways the sound is much btr than wooden guitars......... because metal reflects sound more than wood (it absorbs sound)

    i've given the link for comparision at the starting of the thread check it out......

    yeah I heard it, just wondering whether you had played one and therefore wanted one, or it was more of a 'i think it'd b cool so let me give it a shot'.

    Save up for the pickups. If you're building this to appreciate the sound, you're not going to be able to with cheap pickups.

    yeah, but why waste money on cheapo pickups now when those 1.5k can contribute to saving for better ones.

    hey,
    ya true but my parents dont know abt this project naa so cant incur much expenses....... and i want that guitar bad.......
    if i would've done it after the boards my budget would be unlimited, but i cant wait and my parents dont want me to do anything but study (which is correct on their behalf sadly)
    so either i do-

    1. take cheap pick ups and complete the guitar
    2. make the body now and then after boards complete it all with fenders or gibsons or something.

    so you guys decide i can do both.... and ya inline pick ups (the straight lines ) are better for metal ot humbuckers or what???
