Re: new giger guitar.

no but im wondering what type of metal it is made out of... it would be a shame to purchase a 5 thousanda dollar guitar only to play it for a year and notice BODY rust or heavy tarnishing.

I believe the metal is Zinc.

BTW, here's the other post about the guitar if you want more good info about it. Maybe you already read it though.

I wouldn't even consider buying it as a piece of art (because thats what it is) unless he physically signed it like Vai did with the early jems.

Re: new giger guitar.

it clearly tells you which metal, and of course that's why I added the price [even though it's on my site and also not that tough to find either]
