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)
I've owned various aluminum based guitars over the years--Kramer, Travis Bean, and now Electrical--and the Electrical guitars are hands down the best. The most lightweight, durable, best sounding, best playing, coolest looking aluminum based guitars yet.— Duane Denison of The Jesus Lizard and Tomahawk
