The AlumiSonic 1100 series of hand-crafted archtop guitars embody the ultimate marriage of three acoustically tuned materials: 1100 aluminum for deep sustain and resonance, 6061 aluminum for clarity and crystalline overtones, and mahogany for that classic tonewood warmth and feel. All three materials make for a wicked combination of simultaneously identifiable sounds.
The AlumiSonic 1100 series is undeniably the finest aluminum hybrid instrument ever created. The arch-top of the 1100-Deluxe is cold-formed and hardened from 99% pure 1100 aluminum for the most obtainable warmth and the lowest decibel range of aluminum resonance possible. Dimensionally perfected to classic carve-top proportions, the arch-top is fused to durable .09” thick 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum sides and back, for a higher decibel tone balance, with the added advantage of incredible strength and impact resistance. both pickup positions of the 1100-Deluxe are internally backed with nitrocellulose lacquered, Honduran mahogany chambers, for an extra percussive crunch and hollow body resonance control, with a warm hybrid-blend of aluminum resonance through Mahogany. By simply removing the 4 screws of each pickup ring during a string change, the center portions of these chambers can be removed. Removal of these Mahogany chamber “plugs” allows for the arch-top to attain its fullest potential: for a deeper resonant sustain and a rich array of crystal-clear low and high tones that no other instruments can naturally achieve.
