Alu log guitar project

In the last days I've been considering again working on an aluminium hollow-body rectangle guitar - since I plan to build an alu plate folder for a pedal I have in mind, I'm wondering if I should not do it big enough to fold a piece suitable for a guitar body... 

The back made of wood, one neck pick-up (that's what I use most), a wrap-around bridge (to make a shorter body), a diagonal F-hole, a second-hand neck (I have a couple), that should do!  It doesn't seem so difficult now than when I had an idea last year - I've learnt a lot since! And I will start building again soon after a few months busy with relocating and start a new life (again) in a new country

Music of the week: lots of Weather Report live - thanks to YouTube... I'm still amazed that I listen regularly to 1970s jazz rock, it used to be so far from my musical universe - even if I've always thought that quality transcend musical genre... The drummer of my very first band was a fan though, maybe the virus has a 20 years incubation span... 

Also listened online the new album of Archive, have mixed feelings about it - sometimes it can be really intense and beautiful, but it's not exciting enough - nothing like Portishead or the Dead Weather...
