080 | Aristides Instruments

Aristides guitars


Meeting and surpassing expectations for experimental musicians

With the huge success of our 070, we were asked to push things even further to meet the demand of musicians looking to expand their sonic palette. The custom, flatter compound radius board, thin neck, and 27" scale make for an extremely easy to play 8 string. Introduce one-piece Arium construction into the equation, and the fret access is remarkable, along with a totally massive bass response perfect for extended range guitars. All of our aesthetic options can help you make this guitar look as unique as it, you, and your playing are, and our electronics options ensure it will produce the exact tones you need for both the low and high strings.
