I cannot deny that I love musical instruments crafted from the finest wood, but I also love it when an instrument builder jumps to the other end of the spectrum to use non-traditional materials.

Such is the case with the Normandy Alumicaster, a Tele-style electric guitar built in Salem, Oregon. The Alumicaster is constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum, a material that Normandy claims offers more sustain than wooden guitars, but weighs only seven pounds.

Would you like to get your hands on one of these? Thanks to our friends at Reverb, one of you will! They are giving away a Normandy Alumicaster, along with a hardshell case and Normandy tee shirt.
