From http://www.electricalguitarcompany.com/news.html

Without anyone of these people these guitars would have never happened...

Will Fitzpatrick Jr, Steve Albini, Jake Zigiloli, Jason Phillips, Tim Midgett, Jim Destafney at Blues Angel Music, Rusty at Rockhaus, Chad Briggs, Alex Steward, Clay Davis, Tony Martinez, Greg Kurczewski, Jake at Playhard Music, all the dealers, and Rich Fessler.

Awesome. That's why I thought it was Tim's guitar, it has a similar headstock from a distance. But Tim has a "T" machined into the headstock of his. Tim's also has a wooden body. This is from the Scottsdale show:

I know someone that owns one of these guitars.
Both of the guitarists in the band Oxes also had a couple of these made for them.

I love the fact that you can see every greasy handprint on it when he's playing it. Filthy.

i use an aluminum neck Kramer bass and i just love the tone. its somehting about the strings sitting on metal that gives it an "icy" kinda tone. listen to Shellac Terraform and feel the aluminum.
