Electrical Guitar Company was born out of a complete obsession of the aluminum neck and aluminum guitar world. This "world" was rather small 25 yrs ago, you could basically grab a Travis Bean and give it hell on the road. Then the unexpected, Travis Bean's shot up in value and in fear of my own guitar(s) getting stolen, I decided to make one by combining all my favorite parts of all the guitars I played into one and thus started EGC. Those who have had a chance to play an aluminum neck 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. From Duane Denison to Tom Petersson to Ken Andrews, almost anything is available simply by the way you play and the response of the instrument. By making almost everything on the instrument in house, even down to the covers of the pickups, we have completely refined EGC and defined an entire category of instruments. Kevin Burkett continues the legacy of producing amazing aluminum instruments through Electrical Guitar Company building all aluminum guitars, hybrid aluminum guitars and aluminum bolt on necks.
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
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
