Custom Metal Guitars | Aluminum Magic

At OnlineMetals the best part of our work is being a part of our customer’s work! And when we discover fabrication artists making cool stuff, we love to share and inspire. So,  we were very excited to get the inside scoop on the custom metal guitars made by Wayne Johnson of Innovative Guitars.
Innovative Guitars, based in Grants Pass, Oregon, specializes in custom metal guitars called “Lap Steel Guitars”, but which are largely made from aluminum and wood parts. Each custom metal guitar is an original design, with parts that are hand-machined for each instrument. Innovative Guitars offers many styles to choose from, and custom creates each one when ordered by the customer.
Johnson makes all of the parts himself (with the exception of strings, jacks and other electronic components). OnlineMetals’ 6061 aluminum flat bar is commonly used in the projects to make the headstock, neck and body.
Many of the custom metal guitars can be designed with different materials, and to varying specifications, based on the customer’s needs. Styles can be seen on the company web site where they also sell Steel Guitar Tone Bar slides in various sizes, made from 6061 Aluminum. The published pricing is amazingly affordable for custom metal guitars, with models starting at just $399.99.
We’re glad that our 6061 Aluminum has found such a great purpose, enriching the lives of all the customers who purchase custom metal guitars from Innovative Guitars and of those who are lucky enough to share in their music.
