We create guitars using Aluminium, milled in the U.K. from a solid billet using 5 axis CNC technology to the highest standards. We do take some of our inspiration from the classic curves that guitarists have loved for over 60 years but 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. The 3rd model in the range is our model 'DJ' which takes it's inspiration from the hugely popular 'Offset' body shapes. The Drewman aluminium 25.5" scale necks [round & square heel] are currently not in stock but may be available again soon.
Milled from a billet of aluminium they weigh just 1.80Kg (3lbs 15oz) for the D1 and 1.85Kg (4lbs 2oz) for the DT & DJ.
Milled from a billet of aluminium, weighing less than 4lbs our 25.5" scale necks; round or square heel. Currently unavailable.
The aluminium bodies are always anodised in either a clear coat or with a dye colour, the necks are all mirror polished.
Guitars with wooden / aluminium necks, milled archtops, classic historic shapes, quality hardware & finishes. Average price for a guitar with a wood neck is ~£1750 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 are all potential future projects.

"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."

"Very accommodating, answered all my questions in a timely manner, quick shipping and was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The quality, craftsmanship, fit, finish and included hardware (which is needed for this) was all included. Amazing!!!"
Guitarist - Broadview Heights, OH
"I’m really enjoying the Drewman [Aluminium] neck. It adds a LOT of extra frequency response that causes the amp to go into overdrive and it helps when playing with a buddy; different voicing. Everyone’s impressed by it."
