Bergeron's All Aluminum Guitars

Barry Bergeron from Bergeron Guitars recently started a thread in the GuitarSite forum about his completely aluminum guitars.

"Aluminum has the sound. That's why we build with it. Wooden guitars don't sound like an aluminum guitar does. You already know that electronics alter the tone and voice of the electric guitar more than anything else. But whatever electronics you use, the characteristic aluminum resonance remains" the Bergeron website reads.

"An aluminum guitar neck does some very good things. The aluminum allows more of the string's energy to be heard by the pickup. More signal means more choice for you. The rigidity of aluminum causes an extremely fast attack. Notes pop from the strings. You get excellent sustain because there is no wood to absorb and damp string's energy. Aluminum is a naturally resonant material that you can hear amplified or not. High odd order harmonics are the signature of the Bergeron aluminum guitar's bell tone."

If you have any questions for Barry now would be a great time to ask...
