here's the first of two manufacturers that i have got in contact with
they have approaches that are the same and yet - not.
as far as i can tell there a things of merit all around
look at this diagram
look at this guitar
i think i am in love
so what are we looking at here?
pickups and a Bigsby tremolo.
a piezo bridge
so we have three of the food groups
acoustic sounds and an output jack that could send signals to a guitar synth.
but moreover, we are looking at a hollow body guitar.
reading the theories of the company, i have gleaned a few insights
the idea that something is lighter, based on what i have read, is the opposite of my thinking.
but as i read, there is a desire to strike a balance.
plus they offer infinite sustain!
i am going to have to do some thinking....
the other thing i am pondering over is that they use carbon fiber for their necks
and then i read they have mahogany chambers in the body with removable inserts.
this is doing my head in. expect a sequel to this post
then there is the matter of the two types of aluminium
Ultra-1100 series guitar bodies are fabricated from
a combination of both 6061-T6 and 1100 aluminum"
these statements are the whole point of this blog
the questions are more important than the answers
as I am thinking
go to Alumisonic and have a look around.
