Aluminati Guitar Co. Unveils New Orion Series Guitar

The new Orion Series guitar from the Aluminati combines lightweight aerospace grade aluminum neck with Lucite body for an instrument that offers more sustain and far less maintenance than any other guitar on the market. The ergonomically designed Orion guitars are produced with sustainable manufacturing techniques and contain high post consumer content materials.


Aluminati's hollowcore aluminum neck paired with their 3D milled Lucite body brings all of the sustain and tone associated with aluminum and acrylic, in a lightweight design.

Truss rods are unnecessary in aluminum necks, so along with the use of Jescar stainless fretwire the Orion Series guitars require no yearly adjustments/maintenance.

● 25.5" scale aerospace grade 6061 T6 hollowcore aluminum neck

● 22 stainless steel Jescar frets at a 12" radius

● 3D milled black Lucite bady, chambered for increased resonance

For at least a decade, the classic Ampeg SVT was the dominant bass amp for power and tone.

From the giant, hefty beasts of yore to their modern, ultra-portable equivalents, bass amps have come a long way. So, what's next?

Bassists are often quite well-informed about the details of their instruments, down to the finest technical specs. Many of us have had our share of intense discussions about the most minute differences between one instrument and another. (And sometimes those are interrupted by someone saying, "It's all in the fingers.") But right behind our backs, at the end of our output cables, there is a world of tone-shaping that we either simply ignore or just don't want to dive into too deeply. Turning a gear discussion from bass to amp is a perfect way to bring it to an abrupt end.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
