Who are Aristides?

We have been making boutique injection molded zero-wood guitars out of a proprietary material in our small shop in The Netherlands for over 10 years. Besides a guitar built to extremely high standards with modern amenities such as Stainless Frets & Hipshot Hardware standard on all builds, you will experience an extremely stable neck resistant to temperature changes, amazing fret access from our heel-less one-piece design, & remarkable balanced, rich, & sustaining tone from our Arium (exclusive to us!) body.  

Painstaking R&D & investment went into not only making a forward-thinking guitar suitable for all environments, players, & genres, but also an impeccable guitar - external of the modern materials & construction methods.

Why is this one cool?

Gold/Red Sparkle Madness
 is a limited-run finish as part of our June Shop-Spec collection which has an amazing sparkle gloss finish. After the success of our 070 model, we were asked to venture into new sonic territory and, thus, the 080 was born. Not only does our proprietary material lend itself perfectly to clear, even tone across an extended range instrument, we are often told "wow, it feels like a seven string!" 8-string guitars can be daunting instruments, but we believe they should feel like an extension of your body and this guitar fits that belief. Bare Knuckle Pickups Juggernaut pickups yield tons of string definition and tightness, and this instrument is complete with stainless steel frets, Hipshot hardware, locking tuners, & all of our other high-end features.
