Teams Build Dreams
We are proud to be a highly efficient but small team. Comprised of truly unique specialists and creatives that when not in the shop can be found on tour as sound engineers, on stage as performing artists or serving our community as designers, technicians and music makers.
We believe in creating the optimal product that exceeds global standards while utilizing the resources and people right around us.
From Mind to Matter
Aluminati Guitar Company is a cutting edge guitar and guitar parts manufacturer based in Asheville, North Carolina. We specialize in connecting innovation and tradition by applying high-tech machining and design processes to the age old art of guitar building.
We utilize nontraditional materials such as recycled aluminum and lucite to produce highly efficient instruments with a minimal carbon footprint. All of our parts are sourced exclusively from USA based companies and assembled by hand in the mountains of North Carolina.
Aluminati Guitars was founded in 2009 with one goal in mind: to make the best sounding instrument on the planet.
This soon turned into many goals. The best playing instrument. A lightweight instrument that's so easy to play, it almost plays itself. A guitar with virtually no maintenance. A guitar with classic proportions, but an instantly recognizable modern design. A guitar built with sustainable materials, right here in the good ol' US of A.
In short, a guitar with every desirable feature. The lowest action, no neck dive, heel-less neck joint, the highest quality components, bell-like sustain, and the singing tone only an aluminum instrument can deliver.
If you are looking for a guitar with a neck that will never need that yearly adjustment or fret job, we got you covered. If you are a discerning studio musician searching for the ultimate tone machine, look no further. Want to experiment with the aluminum sound on your own axe? Bolt on an one of our aftermarket necks with an AlumiCrown bridge. We work tirelessly to bring you the best playing, most advanced guitars and components on the planet so you can expand your sonic horizons in style.
James Little, CEO
Aluminati takes a less traditional and more scientific approach to building guitars. We use only what is absolutely best for the instrument's sound, playability, and durability; even if it takes us building new machines and techniques to incorporate these sophisticated materials. Every nut, bolt, curve and cavity is intentional and designed with the player in mind.
□ Aircraft grade 6061 T6 aluminum neck and fretboard with our signature Hollowtech infrastructure that maximizes resonance and minimizes weight, no truss rod- no maintenance- no worries.
□ Necks come in Aurora model 6 in line headstock style, loaded with fender rolling trees and black anodized Sperzel Trim Lock tuners for consistent and stable tuning. Or our Nebula 3x3 tilt back headstock.
□ Our Orion Series bodies are black lucite body in the shape of Orion star constellation and our Nebula Series come in transparent chambered lucite. More on lucite Below.
□ Extremely durable bolt-on brass nut hand cut and polished for regular gauge 10-46 strings, easily interchangeable with our custom gauge guitar nuts.
□ Jescar jumbo sized stainless steel frets for ultrafast fretting and frictionless bends without any dread of getting fret wear.
□ Anodized aluminum pickguard that shields noise and doesn't scratch or streak from guitar picks.
□ Anodized Alumicrown bridge with stainless steel hardware designed for comfortable palm muting and intonation stability.
□ Self lubricating Graphtech Stringsaver Saddles makes strings last 3,500 more plucks before breaking and notes sustain 2 seconds longer than traditional steel saddles.
□ Flushmount Neutrik 1/4" output jack mounted from inside eliminating common scratchy signal and loose hardware issues.
□ Lollar Imperial Humbuckers, tone that sounds great at any volume, setting, or musical style. Mounted from back of body so you don't have to remove strings or pickguard to adjust.
□ Bourns or CTS (depending on model) low friction pots with aluminum screw on knobs for fast swells and long life.
□ All of our hardware is stainless steel with hex key heads so no stripping or oxidation, our bodies and necks are machined with matching threads.
