hehe, good one.Lester B. Flat said:I've played one before. It's one of those guitars that you have to use so much distortion that it does'nt matter what your playing. I found it cold with no character. It played well, however. The "Vulcan salute" headstock would make a great slingshot!
There are many different types of metals and alloys out there today that offer low coefficients of thermal expansion, but the economics just aren't there to justify their use in guitar necks. I doubt many poeple would be willing to pay the huge premium for guitar with a neck made from cobalt-chromium-molybdenum and or a titanium alloy materials. You also have to consider the manufacturing process - these high grade metals and alloys are tough to work with. Most likely, a neck would have to be machined from a solid billet, further adding to the cost.GuitarsCanada said:Would this go for all aluminum necks or was there (is there) a particular era (80's possibly) or today that the grade is better or worse. The feel of the cold metal is a factor for sure. But in terms of the tuning and such, I wonder if there were any improvements..
