What Guitarists are Saying


Aluminum is better than wood

I own quite a few Aluminum guitars and necks from Aluminati of course but also Robot Graves, Alef, Electrical Guitar Company, Normandy and Liquid Metal not to mention a few others. First the service James and the Gang at Aluminati are first rate people to work with providing clear consistent communication, you can feel confident in your purchase. Now the neck it's a revelation and nothing like the solid necks available from literally all the other manufacturers. The weight the feel of the fret board the shape all feels like a regular wood neck. Slightly cool to the touch and then you pluck a note or strum a chord and that's where the magic happens. The neck vibrates in a way you have never felt before, you can feel the notes you play in a whole new way. If you want that aluminum sound with maintenance free while maintaining the balance and feel of a traditional wood neck this is it, the search is over. Highly recommended so much so I have inline necks on order can't wait!


Superior sustain and durability!

James went above and beyond to make sure my Nebula neck worked perfectly on my Peavey T-60. The neck is extremely durable, comfortable, and sleek. It really brings out the “piano-like” quality that you get in old Travis Bean and Kramer guitars and basses. Couldn’t recommend Aluminati highly enough - at a highly competitive price point to the other heavy-hitters like EGC and Alef, I’m extremely satisfied and would love to work with James on a fully-aluminum model sometime in the future!




Get Your O Face Ready...

Yeah I wrote that out loud...
In terms of ease of play and reliability this instrument has no equal that I’ve encountered in over 40 years of guitar playing. I’ve owned a lot of guitars and do not keep those that I don’t resonate with on a deep level. This thing is fast , simple , and beautiful- all the things that make for a long and meaningful relationship. I’ll take this one with me to the the spirit world !
Thanks James for your drive and innovation!

This guitar has changed my word. Not only is it the most unique, flashy guitar i have ever seen, but it has a sound like no other. The sustain is notable, and the action is impeccable. Wait until you feel the neck....so smoooth

James, the owner/builder of these guitars, is such a delight. His knowledge on music goes beyond just guitar manufacturing/building. He is very easy to communicate with and a teacher to say the least. I would recommend James and his guitars to anyone!


Instantly upgrade your sound on a budget

Threw one of these on my Squier CV strat and I am floored at the instantaneous improvement to the sound. I bought this guitar specifically to get modded heavily, including an Aluminati neck. I am still going to do that, but I almost feel badly now that I installed just the Alumicrown bridge. This guitar absolutely rips now and sounds 500+ its price tag. The bridge is featherlight, incredibly well-constructed (shout out to engineering the saddles to actually together snug as a bug in a rug), and has had a dramatic improvement to this budget strat's overall sustain, tone, and sonic clarity. These are now a must have for all of my applicable guitars. Aluminati once again demonstrating why they're one of the best in the biz.


Instant upgrade for low cost

The bridge is an instant upgrade to any guitar, noticeable sustain, brightness and clarity after it's install. High quality component that's obviously crafted with care and attention. Looks great too - I toned down my Strat with the black ano option. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable, but highly valuable bridge upgrade.
