Aristides guitars

“What an amazing look. And what a sound!

It’s like hitting a key on a Steinway grand piano!”

Adrian Van Den Berg


One of best guitarists in the history of Dutch music, Adrian showcased his tasteful guitar wizardry in the late 70’s as lead guitarist of the band Teaser, later founding his own band, Vandenberg. The band found their peak success in the ‘80s, and after releasing 3 albums, disbanded. Adrian then joined David Coverdale in Whitesnake. Although initially brought on as a session musician, his songwriting prowess and skill as a band leader helped catapult Whitesnake to multiple Billboard hits. Adrian Vandenberg has been a cornerstone of hard rock for 4 decades and his passion for Aristides is a huge compliment.

Adrian was instrumental in the final development of the 010, and debuted it with Aristides at Frankfurt MusikMesse 2009. He had very high expectations, being both a legendary guitarist and a painter and visual artist with a degree from The Academy of Arts, and Aristides was proud to impress him.
