We create guitars using aluminium, milled with 5 axis CNC technology from a solid block of aluminium to the highest standards. We take our inspiration from classic curves that guitarists have loved for over 60 years. Our ambition has always been to build a guitar that was not just 'another guitar'.
We sell complete instruments and we also make our aluminium guitar bodies & necks available to project builders. The guitar bodies are milled with either a radial burst or they are bead-blasted and we anodise our bodies to protect them either with a clear coat finish or in a variety of available colours. The necks are mirror polish finished.
The D1 single cut 'arch-top' was our first creation, closely followed by our 'T' style model DT (which will soon be available as a left handed version). The 3rd model in the range will be our model 'DJ/D3' which will take it's inspiration from the 'Offset' classic body shapes. The Drewman aluminium 25.5" scale neck is also now availabe to order with either a square or round heel.
Milled from a single billet of aluminium they weigh just 1.80Kg (3lbs 15oz) for the D1 and 1.85Kg (4lbs 2oz) for the DT.
Milled from a single billet of aluminium and weighing less than 4lbs our 25.5" scale necks come with either a round or square heel.
The aluminium bodies are always anodised in either a clear coat or with a dye colour, the necks are all mirror polished.
We sell guitars with wooden necks, aluminium necks, beautiful archtops, classic historic shapes, quality hardware and finishes. Average price for a complete guitar is ~£2000 GBP.
Request a special colour, choose a shape, grab yourself an aluminium neck; whatever you need to complete your next build. Bodies are £900 GBP, Aluminium necks are £750 GBP.
We've got plans here at Drewman; 28" scale baritone aluminium necks, offset aluminium bodies, left-handed guitars. We often run surveys to see what people want next.

"This guitar has quickly turned into my favorite sounding instrument that I own, it's got a great full bodied tone and the sustain is unbelievable. I've also never played a T type before, it is just so comfortable."
