Electrical Guitar Company was born out of total admiration of the aluminum instrument world. Those who have had a chance to play an aluminum-based instrument rarely go back. With aluminum, you are capable of generating some of the most beautiful tones. Conversely, you can create some of the harshest sounds ever imagined. Kevin Burkett continues the legacy of producing amazing aluminum instruments through Electrical Guitar Company.
I always have an EGC in the studio with me. It does so many things other guitars do half as well. Beautiful chime like tones, warm singing sustain or brutally abrasive sounds that feel like your biting into a car battery. They are never dull. You will be heard.— Bobby Raw of Jack's Mannequin, bikelock and John Legend
I've seen almost every guitar come through this studio. There is literally no other guitar maker who makes more reliably good sounding instruments than Kevin.— Steve Albini of Shellac, Rapeman, Electrical Audio and Steve Albini (Pensacola News Journal, 3/6/11)
They're wonderful guitars. I have about 7 of them. I love the necks, because with it being aluminum, you don't have to have a tapered neck since it's so much stronger and stable than wood. It allows me to have a really small neck profile. I can play faster and more effectively with a thinner aluminum neck than I could ever dream of playing with a wooden neck.— Buzz Osborne of Melvins
