    Looks like he went a little overboard with the shielding, huh?

    I dunno, they made alluminum uprights and a lot of people seemed to think they sounded pretty good actually.

    True. I would like to hear it too. But I don't think that we will get any bites, at that price.

    If I remember correctly, the Fender Custom Shop made some aluminum-body Stratocasters. I don't know how they sounded, though.
     
  10. An instuctor/luthier friend of mine has one- sounds sweet when bowed, awful plucked. There's a natural resonance/reverb that can work or not work for a given situation. None of this probably relates to the above beast, though.

    I think he means you may need rubber gloves to play it.
     
  14. nice and comfy for your forearm to rest on- ouch......

    IIRC the Fender Harley-Davidson aluminum strat had the usual comfort contours.
