Italy’s Alusonic Aluminum Instruments has introduced the Django bass guitar. The model aims to bring handmade quality to an affordable price point.
The bolt-on bass is built with an alder body, a hard maple neck, and a grade A ebony fingerboard. It comes in matte black, high gloss black and high gloss white finishes, adorned with a PVC mirror or 3-ply black pickguard.
Central to the Django’s design is its flexible pickup system, which includes an Alnico 5 humbucker in the bridge position and an Alnico5 stacked coil in the neck position. A 5-way toggle switch allows for five pickup variations: the bridge humbucker, the humbucker plus stacked neck pickup, the stacked neck pickup, the bridge as a split coil and the stacked neck pickup, or the bridge as a split coil alone. It operates in passive or active modes with bass and treble cut/boost knobs.
The Alusonic Django bass guitar will be available with an introductory price of approximately $951 and a list price of closer to $1,162.
