I used an Aurora 6 for a Strat build based on a 1988 Fender Custom Shop body and electronics. The guitar sits in a stand, ready for action, 24/7. That meant a neck immune to moving in weather and without humidity concerns was essential. My A6 is blue anodized, with the dark blue anodization working great with the black holoflake body. The plain carbon fiber fingerboard is dark like ebony, but shimmers with a gunmetal appearance in sunlight. The radius is a good compromise all around and the neck profile with matte finish makes for great feel. The mass of the neck with a long-dried body provides more resonance and a slightly brighter presentation -- sounds awesome. Well worth the wait, considering buying another. Terrific necks!

Once I installed the neck and Alumicrown bridge (I had to get one, how could you not!), it already played and sounded amazing. After having the guitar professionally set up all round (intonation, pickups, electronics, etc), what a beast! These are the absolute best sounding most balanced aluminum necks in my experience. So smooth and easy to play. I definitely want another, but the NEBULA DX has really got me!
I’ve had my Aluminati neck few about a year and It has transformed my boring strat into a super strat! The carbon fiber fretboard and stainless steel frets are a work of playable art. Sustain from this neck is what you would expect from a bell. If you have a strat or telecaster you don’t play anymore because it’s lost favor and seems lifeless, try upgrading it with an Aluminati neck...pick a cool color (I went with purple) to add some character and resuscitate that old guitar.
I have been playing for 17 years and heve never felt such limitless potential from my guitar after installing neck.
