Lightbulb Would any solid element be invisible/transparent if you could stop electrons from abs

Would any solid element be invisible/transparent if you could stop electrons from absorbing, and emission light photons.
So try to imagine light basically just passing through a solid element through the atoms, but there are no electrons, orbiting the atoms, or you could somehow stop the electrons from absorbing light.
Would any solid object become transparent, or invisible.

In a word, yes. Though I have no idea how to make that happen.
