AlumiSonic Introduces the New 1100-Deluxe Aluminum Guitar

AlumiSonic Introduces the New 1100-Deluxe Aluminum Guitar -

AlumiSonic has introduced their new top of the line Aluminum Guitar, the 1100-Deluxe. The 1100-Deluxe Aluminum Guitar is the sonic embodiment of a chrome plated, 1100 grade Aluminum semi hollow body with mahogany chambers, formed to classic carve top proportions, with the addition of a sound hole for greater resonance.  Both pickup positions of the 1100-Deluxe are internally backed with nitrocellulose lacquered Honduran mahogany for an extra percussive crunch and resonance control that generates a warm, hybrid-blend of aluminum resonance through mahogany. The 1100-Deluxe also includes the innovative feature of removable Honduran mahogany chamber plugs for a more resonant hollow body sound. Removal of the Mahogany chamber plugs allows for the 1100 grade aluminum arch-top to attain its fullest potential: for a deeper resonant sustain and an extraordinary array of crystal-clear low and high tones that no other instruments can naturally achieve.

Custom designed per order, each 1100-Deluxe mahogany neck is available with a variety of back contour, fret and fingerboard choices and Mother of Pearl inlay options. The 1100-Deluxe also includes AlumiSonic's wood to aluminum, set neck mounting system. The mahogany neck is internally bolted down to a machined aluminum dovetail mount resulting in even greater strength than ordinary bolt on necks and with the added feature of a smooth back with no visible screws. The 1100-Deluxe can also be made with the choice of a Bigsby B-7 Tremolo or standard two piece bridge. Additional custom features available include Piezo and Midi output options, as well as AlumiSonic's new and exclusive custom stacked Bell Knob for concentric control.

The 1100-Deluxe is an absolutely, stunning classic style variation of our 1100-Custom series that represents AlumiSonic's finest handmade selection. Each 1100-Deluxe guitar order is personally carried through and crafted by custom luthier, Ray Matter, who hand fabricates each instrument to the highest level of detail and dimensional perfection, applying unlimited hours to the flawless fit and exquisite surface finishing of every component, far beyond the quality control limitations of mass production. As with most of AlumiSonic's custom guitars, specification sheets showing different variations of each guitar are available for downloading and printing on AlumiSonic's web page, or an appointment can be made with Ray Matter by phone, to help design your custom AlumiSonic guitar.
