Aristides guitars

You need to play an Aristides to believe it. Having very limited access to high-end instruments in India, I decided to take the plunge and order an Aristides in 2017 after watching a ton of Youtube videos. The minute I played one, life literally changed for me. The tuning stability (super, super important to me), resonance, and clarity is just unmatched. Great tools are meant to give you the freedom to create freely and not have to worry about silly things that can break your flow and Aristides DELIVERS. Not to mention how cool they LOOK!
