Aristides guitars

‘​When I heard of Aristides, I had a feeling they might be on to something with their unusual approach - I love it when my high expectations are met by something above and beyond them, and these guitars are most certainly the case.’

Fred Brum

Bio

Fred Brum was studying to be a classical pianist when he was 15, and listened to Zakk Wylde for the first time. Months later, obsessing about getting those raw, visceral sounds out of a guitar himself, he picked up his first guitar, not knowing he’d be setting foot on a stage professionally one short year after and working as hired gun for many artists by the time he was 19.

A very busy session musician, he favours 7-strings and other extended range guitars, such as 8-strings and 36-fret monsters to perform his work and has developed his style and approach around such instruments. Fred is also the proud owner of 070 #002, the second 070 ever made.

Fred released his first solo album Atonement in 2011 and his second album Transcendence was released May 31, 2014.
