While designing this model, I aimed to create an elegant aesthetic which would let the natural beauty of the wood stand out, with brass and ebony as adornment. The body shape is my interpretation of a Modern OM shape with rounder curves and a narrower waist. Each aspect of construction was chosen for its contribution to depth of tone, balance, volume, sustain, and longevity, hoping to inspire the player for a lifetime.

On the bench here is a guitar that I made in 2019. It ended up going home with a left handed player, so it got a new bridge, intonated saddle and was converted to left handed.
We also opted to tint the top to take away the whiteness of the Engleman Spruce, happy with how it turned out!
Engleman spruce top, spalted tamarind back and sides, mahogany neck, camatillo bridge, fingerboard and headstock overlay.

Alosinac Electric - The Beast
•Vintage Dearmond Gold Foil pickup in the neck position, and behind the bridge to capture the strings behind the bridge going to the vibrato.
•Vintage P90 in the bridge position.
•Graphtech Resomax bridge with piezo saddles giving this guitar an acoustic voice as well as MIDI capabilities
•Kill switch, upper bout
•3 piezo elements embedded in the vibrato cavity, the body in the lower bout and in the upper horn. They pickup the body’s resonance and can be used for tapping rhythmic patterns.
Typically a neck of this design has runs a high risk of having the headstock break. To help mitigate this risk I took some old mahogany out of my stash and laminated the neck instead of making out of one piece. The tonal properties of the wood are still present, but the neck is stronger and stiffer from lamination. The more stiffness in the neck brings out more sustain.
I also added a pair of lightweight carbon fibre rods beside the truss rod. Again, adding strength and stiffness.
I also opted to use a truss rod where it could be adjusted at the base of the neck at the body. This leaves more wood at the vulnerable point of the neck where the headstock typically breaks when the truss rod runs right through that angle.
