Subject: RE: Tech: The Aluminum Martin Guitar
Nope Garg, I use the stuff for a living. It is Aluminium. Don't ask how the bridge was bonded to the top. I am clueless. The top was finished with a circular sander. The swirls were very, very obvious. It also had a sound hole cover.
Aluminum is not new in the guitar world. Remember about 25 years ago Applause had an aluminum neck with cast in place frets?
Well, experiment away. Where else does innovation come from.
