Thread Name: Tech: The Aluminum Martin Guitar
Subject: RE: Tech: The Aluminum Martin Guitar
However, Martin is definitely not the first to make aluminum-bodied instruments. Some company did once make aluminum violin family instruments for school use. A friend has one of their cellos and it sounds pretty darned good. Maybe an aluminum acoustic bass guitar wouldn't be a bad idea. Or perhaps an aluminum reso. But an aluminum flat-top? I think I'll pass.
