Aluminati Guitar Co. Unveils New Andromeda Aluminum Bass Necks

A 34" scale neck made out of aerospace-grade aluminum.

Asheville, NC (November 9, 2020) -- The new bass neck from Aluminati combines aerospace grade aluminum with carbon fiber for an instrument that offers more sustain and far less maintenance than any other neck on the market. Andromeda series necks are lightweight, have great tuning stability and are available in eleven anodized colors.

Aluminati's bass offering brings all of the sustain and tone associated with aluminum necks in a lightweight design.

Coming in at 2.5 lbs including tuners the Andromeda bass neck has a familiar weight and feel. Truss rods are unnecessary in aluminum necks, so along with the use of stainless fretwire Andromeda necks require no yearly adjustments/maintenance.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
