Aluminium Guitars by Anthony Goulding
Just discovered a new brand of guitar this morning – and what a find. I’d never heard of Goulding guitars before and it was even more of a surprise to realise they were a British firm. As ever, there’s not much I can say about these or any of the guitars I feature until I can get my hands on them but it seems to me on face value that they are unique and distinctive – very attractive. I love the attention to detail – the custom hardware, especially the solid-looking knobs, tailpieces and bridges. Oh – I almost forgot – they’re all aluminium guitars!
In their own words:
Our instruments are individually machined from two solid billets of aluminium and hand finished by our team of experienced British craftsmen. A Goulding guitar is a unique individual instrument you can be exceptionally proud to own. Visual and technical design, coupled with exceptional craftsmanship provide each Goulding owner with a playability and tone that is second to none.
The body of a Goulding guitar is made from a two inch thick billet of aluminium, which is machined from the rear to make it hollow. The front is machined to give it it’s carved look.
We have our own Goulding designed pickup surrounds made in Gold Plated Brass.
The neck is also made from a solid billet of aluminium. The fret board is made of Cocobola or Birdseye Maple with mother of pearl, NZ paua or abalone markings.
