Just a quick update to kinda answer ALL of the emails we have gotten about the Anodized Aluminum Jazzmaster Guards. We are almost there! Very soon, ANOTONE will only be offering the Standard AVRI Jazzmaster 13-hole pickguard, cut from T6 6061 Aerospace Aluminum, with custom color anodizing. We will be following that up with the 9-hole cut, and then hopefully there will be an option for custom cuts along the way (though that is still TBD). These parts will retail for $95.00, and each order will take up to ten days to make (depending on color selection). Here is a picture of a protoype with a sweet, cool-blue 80s filter that we are a sucker for:

More stuff is on the way, including Jazzmaster Nine-Hole and Thirteen-Hole pickguards (I know, I know - soon!), new knobs, Stratocaster back plates, and Telecaster control plates. I hope everyone had a great Holiday, and I promise you will be hearing about more new products soon! Thanks!

Hello, there! A lot has been going on at ANOTONE lately. We've been prototyping new parts and trying a few new techniques out to save you dudes some money! With that being said, it will be a few more weeks until the (very popular/anticipated) CNC machined, anodized aluminum Stratocaster style top-hat knobs will be available for purchase. They take a long time to make, and we want them to be just perfect! Keep checking back with us!

In other news, we will FINALLY be updating our site with new photographs. Finding a photographer that we did not need to procure a mortgage for was no small task, but this dude we are using is legit! We are excited to give the site a long overdue makeover!

Starting today, you can buy Vintage Telecaster style, 5-hole pickguards machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized any of our colors. Just buy a standard one here, and at checkout specify the 5-hole preference in the "special notes/comments" box. Keep it real!


Hola! So we struck a deal with a supplier of ours, and we are now able to offer our aluminum pickguards at a more affordable rate! The Stratocaster and Telecaster Aluminum Pickguard models will be available for $32.95USD and $29.95USD respectively. We are almost done photographing our Aluminum Single Coil Pickup Covers and Telecaster Knob Kits, and they will be available for purchase in the next two weeks. Stay tuned!

So by the end of the month we are going to have some new products up in ANOTONE'S shop. Something we are really excited to offer are our machined, anodized aluminum knobs for the Fender Stratocaster guitar. These will be able to be purchased in a variety of colors. Custom color matching will also be available.

Another part that we are super pumped to offer is an aluminum anodized pick up cover! We haven't seen many out on the market. Below are a few pictures from a sample run that we just did. They have been approved for production and will be available in the next few weeks. Our customers will be able to mix and match knobs, pickguards, pickup covers and switch tips, to completely customize their guitars!

Our next product line is so obvious - it's an Aluminum Pickguard for the Fender Telecaster. This is the finest metal pickguard for the Telecaster on the market. We are 100000000% sure of it:

Aluminum Pickguards for Fender Telecaster Guitars.  Pre-anodize. 

Aluminum Pickguard for the Fender Telecaster: Bright Dip Anodized "Raspberry" 

It will come polished or brushed, and our customers will have twenty different colors to choose from. Here is one I did today - I checkered the timesaving to give it what I call a "corduroy" finish, and then I bright dip anodized it custom color "raspberry."  

These will be for sale in the next ten days. In the meantime, check us out on Instagram to see a video of this pickguard getting anodized - pretty sweet process! Keep it real!


This is the beginning of ANOTONE - a small, aftermarket guitar parts manufacturer located in Chicago, Illinois. We make aluminum guitar parts and we anodize them in the filthiest colors known to man. We are launching this site with our pickguards cut for Fender Stratocaster model guitars (the most beautiful guitar model on the planet). In the near future (est. 1 month) we plan on having the following anodized aluminum hardware for the Stratocaster: volume and tone knobs, back plates, neck plates, switch tips, tuners, and strap buttons. If you are a fan of the Telecaster, in the next 10 days we will have pickguards, knobs, and plates to offer.

These parts will be offered individually or in sets. Customers will also have the option of doing custom color combinations. 

Check out this color combo we call "thenah" - featured is a brushed, bright dip gold anodized pickguard, bright dip clear anodized volume and tone knobs, and a bright dip clear anodized switch tip. This was a custom build for a close friend of ANOTONE. Thanks for checking us out:
