  2. The bridge pup sounds great! What is the neck material, please? Weight? I'd be willing to bet that there is no neck dive.

    Ciao Sbociol!

    jazz5: maple neck/pau ferro wood fretboard. Black poliuretanic gloss finish over the neck and the fretboard.

    precision: maple neck/rosewood fretboard. Black poliuretanic gloss finish over the neck.

    the weight is about 10 pounds (4.5 Kg)
  5. Thank you, Sir. That's not a bad weight at all. I'll be interested to check out the website when it's up and running. I do like the sound of that bridge pup quite a bit, great growl and clarity. I wonder if a 24 fret neck wil be an option. It's a must for me.

    user "Polly" said that the website will be update and officialy open soon (1-2 weeks). There, you will can find all contacts, finishes, description and prices of basses.
  8. Thanks Taz. I'm one of those unilingual Americans and would have never been able to understand a thing from the Italian bass site. This an interesting bass and I appreciate you taking the time to post all of the info here.

    Polly borrowed the idea from Lanfranco Veronelli (R.I.P.), aka Penny, the mind behind "Telelan" basses.
    Polly himself was a Telelan user, well before he even considered starting with Alusonic basses.

    Here's a little page about Telelan basses:

    Good luck to Polly & Alusonic basses

    the price is wrote in the middle of page 2 of the thread..between 2.300-2.600 euro, (without custom options). it's a great price for me!! for example, about 2.000 euro less than the 4.000 euro for a Noah Bass aluminium instrument.

    Finally, the question of "What's the best bass for Metal?" can be laid to rest.

    I wonder if they'll be available with Lace Alumitone pickups?
