Anodized Aluminum Jazzmaster Pickguards. AVRI 9-hole and 13-hole. They will be up in our store in ten days. Join the mailing list for updates. Cheers!
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!
Hey there! It's been awhile! There is a lot of new stuff going on at ANOTONE! We are excited to announce the release of our first series of anodized aluminum single-coil pickup covers. These parts are CNC machined from T6-6061 Aluminum and we are currently offering fifteen different bright-dip anodized colors!
Temporary pictures are up in our store (hi-def photographs coming soon). We are currently selling the pickup covers as singles for $10.00USD a piece. In the future, we are planning on offering them in sets of two, three, and four for a discounted rate. Stay tuned for more products in the coming weeks; most notably anodized aluminum Telecaster knobs, face plates, and switch tips!
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 a few weeks ago I told you that I made a pretty gnarly slide out of some scrap tubing that I had laying around the shop. It was such a success that I took a shot at making a few more - all different sizes and different colors. I made some tubing, cut it down to size, de-burred it, and hand-polished it to a mirror finish. We bright dipped anodized the prototypes a few different colors (see below). These things are filthy and will definitely be for sale soon on ANOTONE.COM:
Messin' around in the shop today when I realized I had recently misplaced my Anodized Aluminum Fender Guitar Slide. I decided to make this bad boy. I'm not sure what the alloy is - I cut it out of some scrap tubing and deburred it on a polishing wheel. Check out that purple to black fade! BADASS!
New product for ANOTONE? I think so:
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!
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:
