Chrome Archtop Guitar

Check out this guitar with a body made from aircraft grade aluminum, maple neck,and, Normandy "old shcool" Humbucker pickups. It sure is shiny.

I wonder what this baby sounds like? I have read so much about how the type of wood used to build a guitar, affects its sound, that I wonder the difference in the aluminum compared to wood? It probably sounds great, but I can't help but think it would sound different.

It seems that the metal would resanate the sound more than wood. Here is a link to The manufactureres site, Normandy Guitars. Nomandy guitars are made in Salem, Oregon, USA.
I'm not completely sold on an aluminum guitar body!

Very different guitar! Would be cool to own and show off but I prefer wood myself!
Thanks for sharing!
