Biohazard Posted May 26, 2004 Report Share Posted May 26, 2004 Ok, before I start, I don't want to cause any arguments/heated discussions/huge conversations between wood types, but I thought i'd ask this question. I'm getting a guitar made for me, well i'll be doing electronics etc but thats besides the point. Anyway, this body, on the front, back and sides, is going to have sheet aluminium glued to it. I've seen guitarists with metal finished guitars and I thinkg they look good (Matt Bellamy - Muse, Steve Vai, Satriani - although not aluminium, offsprings, a few others). I want a darkish sounding tone, and I thought that the aluminium will really brighten up the tone bringing lots of trebles out. So i've chosen a Kent Armstrong Motherbucker bridge p/up and a Rio Grande Punchbox p/up for neck. For the body wood, I chose mahogany (warm, dark sounding) because I thought that if I chose anything else, the aluminium would make it too trebly and not much bass/mids. Have I made a good decision or are there other options i've overseen? Thanks for any advice, sorry for the long post. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
