Aristides guitars

”Having several friends in the industry who swear by Aristides Guitars, I was curious to see if they were going to live up to all the hype. My first experience actually sitting down with one was at NAMM 2016 and I’ve been hooked ever since. They instantly surpassed my expectations in terms of feel and overall tonality, even when played acoustically. On top of that, I live in a climate that is extremely unforgiving for wooden instruments, and this has been the answer to all my qualms both at home or on the road when there are climate changes week to week. You take it out of the case and regardless of where you are or where you came from, it’s instantly inspiring to pick up and ready to go. Aristides are the real deal.”
