Metal guitar

The RoGIToR was a 'just for the hell of it' project back in 1995. The body was machined from a solid
piece of 7075 T7 aluminum. The name 'RoGIToR' (the initials of the owner + guitar as spelled in Nooalf)
is machined 1/2 inch deep. The back cover is held on with 4 cobalt samerium magnets. The neck, frets &
head are all 1 piece machined from a solid bar of 316 stainless steel. Each of the 6 pickups can be turned
on, off or combined with its pair into a humbucker arrangement. Each pair has separate tone &
volume controls.

It took about 6 months to make and then I made some changes in 1996 that took several more months.
The hardest part was getting the chiclet shaped body symmetrical, even and smooth. I had to do dozens
of setup adjustments to mill off chunks, then sand the facets into curves and compare the corresponding
left/rite/top/bottom areas, often having to go back to remachine lumps that were too big to sand. Then
while smoothing it out with progressively finer sandpaper by hand, I'd find a lump or a dip and have to
go back to the belt sander. A year after I finished my elbows still hurt.
