We've been on hiatus for about six weeks - our real jobs have been killer! We are currently waiting on a new CNC router to be delivered before we make any new parts. Standard Anodized Aluminum Stratocaster and Telecaster Pickguards are still stocked, as well as Anodized Aluminum Esquire, Vintage Telecaster and Stratocaster HSS. We also have some Anodized Aluminum Stratocaster Backplates, Telecaster Control Plates and Switch Tip Knobs via specail requst. Everything else (including Anodized Aluminum Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Carbonita Pickguards) is on hold until the new machinery arrives. We are still alive, and we appreciate your patience. Cheers.
Hey folks! We are super excited to show off a few photos of our new product: Anodized Aluminum Stratocaster Knobs! These knobs are CNC Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum and can be bright dip anodized any of our twenty-two colors.
We are also excited to be experimenting with some new color-filling techniques on our engraved parts. In the future, our customers will be able to completely customize the color combinations of their orders. We will have a presale in the next few weeks - Stay tuned!
Hey folks! I haven't posted on the blog in a few weeks. I just wanted to drop a line and tell you that we are going to be releasing our version of the classic Stratocaster style top-hat knob in the next few weeks. We are going to have a blank version and an engraved version! Stay tuned and keep checking back for updates and early bird specials!
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:
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:
