Anodize is a pretty hard finish. Aside from dings and dents it shouldn't really wear from playing at all unless you're really rough with it.

I’ve been talking to Bassus just yesterday about wanting an Aluminium necked thing and these just made the top of the list.

Awesome work. Followed.

I tracked a set and some demos at Developing Nations this past weekend and played Kevin's new bass prototype. Sounds huge and was almost unbelievably light. Certainly noticeably lighter than my Jazz Bass. Tons of attack and clarity. Def looking forward to seeing the first few finished ones.

Does anyone else have any experience with these? Those of you who have one, how do you feel about it now that the honeymoon phase has past? I'm gonna get in on one of these and would like to hear some more opinions if possible.

I'm curious, too.
I chatted with the guy for a bit about doing a 24" scale instrument and he said he'd be getting his own machine before too long and might be able to do custom stuff after that. For now, he's getting the necks made in batches.

Yeah that's what he told me as well and that's not a huge issue for me, I'd go with a 25.5. I imagine that once more options become available the prices will go up (obviously) which is why I kind of wanted to get in sooner rather than later. I'm really curious about how the neck feels and compares to something like the EGC thin necks. I have a EGC right now with a thin neck now and an SG with a regular SG style neck (fatty) and I was wondering if it falls somewhere in between or what to really expect. Also curious about the pickups he builds.

There's a Facebook group called Aluminum Axes and there are a few people on there who have them.

The DNG neck is thicker than an EGC by far. Mine is anodized and fast. I’d say a little slimmer or comparable to a 59 LP. The guitar balances well. Kevin wound a single coil with huge slugs in a humbucker shell for me and it’s nice and bright and clanky like I wanted. The guitar has its own sound. Very tight. It’s the Bean I always wanted (double cut walnut)

Thanks for the feedback! I was pretty much going to do the same thing as yrs but with the super single in the neck, a humbucker in the bridge and volume knobs for each pickup.

I wouldn't anticipate prices going up just because. Kevin's current prices aren't some stop on the way to making $3500 guitars. They're built to be super high quality for a reasonable price that a serious musician can afford because that's where he wants them to be priced.

Necks are the largest of any aluminum maker by far. They feel big and full in your hand by design because Kevin is a dude with huge hands. The neck on a DNG will be like the neck on your SG but wider at the nut which makes them feel pretty big. The EGC will feel painfully skinny by comparison. Pickups are also excellent. Kevin is doing cool stuff with Alnico 8 magnets and higher output that really makes for big tight tones with gain. Dude is a renowned metal producer. The guitars fit into that vibe nicely and do a whole lot more.
