“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, 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 pounds.” -Mike Hranica
