“When James and I began designing what would become the Keystone, I wanted to create an aluminum instrument that answered to the discrepancies I’ve experienced. Being a Bean and EGC lover, we were able to construct the sound of a proper aluminum guitar while also making something new. James is avid about not mimicking something that already exists and exists properly: I admire that. With that - the Aluminati Keystone. Removable, bolt-on aluminum nut (also able to be swapped out for bone by owners with different taste), carbon fiber fretboard (acclimates to temperature less temperamentally than aluminum), adjustable pickup height from the rear of the guitar, and a through aluminum pickguard to ensure the resonance of an aluminum guitar (not just a bolt on aluminum neck). Such specifications allow the guitar to come in at a light seven and a half pounds.” -Mike Hranica
