Aristides guitars


Pushing the Envelope

The 080S made its debut at NAMM 2016. We are extremely proud to bring this instrument to our customers. Artists from all genres, that prefer all different numbers of strings, love it for its balanced feel and tone, and perfectionist build quality. As always, a one-piece Arium construction ensures the best possible durability, fret access, and tone. However this model is buttressed by a 28"-26.5" multiscale design, for the best tone, feel, and comfort across all strings possible. This model even includes our custom Aristides Instrument Bare Knuckle Pickups set stock, for the best tone possible for a modern player. Expand the possibilities of your playing with an 080S!
