Mike Emiliani from SmartBassGuitar.com http://smartbassguitar.com/ tipped us off to this very interesting interview with Andrea Pollice from Alusonic Instruments. Here's an excerpt: When you think of a bass guitar what do you typically think of? Maybe the name Fender comes to mind, a neck and body made from a premier wood, some pickups, a bridge and some knobs meant to fine tune the controls of the pickups and tone. Pretty standard image, right? I’m sure nowhere in that image is a picture of a bass made out of a metal, rather than a wood. Now we’re talking crazy right? Not at all, in fact take a listen for yourself: Read the interview HERE: http://smartbassguitar.com/alusonic-instruments-interview/#.W6n7hGhKiCg And while you're visiting, check out all the other features on the site.
