1100-Custom Aluminum Guitar is the result of several years
of research and development into the perfect combination of
material types and thicknesses selected to produce the ultimate
equalization of aluminum clarity with deep, controllable,
semi-hollow arch-top resonance and sustain.
series of hand crafted archtop guitars embody the ultimate
marriage of three acoustically tuned materials: 1100 aluminum
for deep sustain and resonance, 6061 aluminum for clarity
and crystalline overtones, and mahogany for that classic tonewood
warmth and feel. All three materials make for a wicked combination
of simultaneously identifiable sounds. The AlumiSonic 1100
series of guitars are undeniably the finest aluminum hybrid
instrument ever created..
of the 1100-Custom is cold formed and hardened from 99% pure
1100 aluminum, for the most obtainable warmth, with the lowest
decibel aluminum resonance physically possible. Dimensionally
perfected to classic carve-top proportions, the arch-top is
fused to durable .09” thick 6061 aircraft grade aluminum
sides and back, for a higher decibel tone balance with the
added advantage of incredible strength and impact resistance.
For extra percussive crunch and resonance control, both pickup
positions are internally backed with nitrocellulose lacquered
Honduran mahogany chambers. These innovative chambers are
designed for greater feedback control, with a warm hybrid-blend
of aluminum resonance through Mahogany.
removing the 4 screws of each pickup ring during a string
change, the center portions of these chambers can be removed.
Removal of these Mahogany chamber “plugs” allows
for the arch-top to attain its fullest potential: for a deeper
resonant sustain under overdriven conditions, and a rich array
of crystal-clear low and high tones that no other instruments
can naturally achieve.
The incredibly versatile 1100-Custom Guitar can also be customized
with optional pickups wired with detachable micro plugs. AlumiSonic
provides all commercially available pickups, with a micro
plug pre-installed for easy changeability.
offered for the 1100-Custom are designed to maintain the feel,
balance and temperature of a classic, set neck carved-top
instrument. Through extensive testing we determined that mahogany
is the necessary hybrid ingredient for balance of flavoring
and transference of sound from a quality tone wood neck, to
a pure aluminum body. The neck is internally mounted with
our patented AlumiSonic Set Neck Mounting System, which results
in a smooth back, with no external neck mounting hardware.
This new and innovative mounting method also allows for better
tone transfer from neck to body than ordinary neck mounting
methods. In addition to providing a stronger connection than
ordinary bolt- on necks, the Set Neck is easily replaceable
in case of damage. 1100-Custom neck pockets are angled back
at a traditional 5 degrees for perfect “Tun-O-Matic”
bridge alignment and action, or for the removable Stetsbar
Pro II Tremolo system.
