Aristides guitars


Bass, refined

Both its look and sound make this bass an extraordinary instrument. The minimal weight and intelligent weight distribution make the 050 a true pleasure to perform with. Due to the one-piece and very precise arium neck construction we were able to make a long scale 34” bass with a low B-string that sounds as clear on an extra-long scale 35”/36” bass. Additional benefits of a 34” five-string bass are the perfect sound of the higher strings and the better playability compared to extra-long scales.
The Aristides 050 was designed in collaboration with VANRENSDESIGN.
Design by Frans van Rens.
