Aristides guitars


Vintage, Meet Modern

The Aristides 020 is a beautiful, vintage-styled, short-scale guitar, and the third and final of the original 3 Aristides models designed in collaboration with VANRENDESIGN. Our dedication to craftsmanship and functionality carries over into this model, despite its vintage appointments, right down to the slightly thicker neck shape and heavy-duty machined pickup rings. Combine this design with all the tonal, playability, and durability benefits of our one-piece Arium construction, and you have the benefits of a comfortable, warm-sounding vintage guitar with all the customizability and quality of an Aristides Instrument! Equally at home in metal and traditional music.
