T – Style

"I want ballsy low end, I want clear highs. I want cutting midrange, I want broadness. This was never possible in one single guitar until Aristides found a way to do it: Arium. Add insane playability, stability and swag and you have the perfect guitars."

Timo Somers, Ayreon, Supersonic Revolution

"It’s no secret I’ve had an obsession with Arium for a long time now, and I always reach for it while recording especially. It’s played a major role in creating my bands sound, and I feel that the material offers something very special, and unique, sonically. The prospect of recording with my usual go to’s, plus this Arium bass opens up a whole new world of possibilities, and I cannot wait to get it in my hands!"

About the T – Style

The Aristides T/0 T-Style guitar is the ergonomic, tonally balanced custom guitar of choice for players looking for a comfortable neck, rich sustain, & 22 frets. T/0 is explicitly designed to not only advance a classic singlecut with Aristides’ trademark design philosophy & attention to detail but is also based on customer feedback & artist requests to create a versatile platform with all-new specifications for Aristides & the largest array of customization available on any Aristides model. T/0’s slightly larger Aristides neck profile & 10-14″ compound radius quickly made it a fan-favorite among rock & traditional players, with its 22 frets providing chimey, harmonically rich neck position tone. A slightly deeper body balances comfortably, contributes to a fat, clear sound, & is perfectly suited to an EverTune bridge. 6 bridges, the highest number of pickup options, choice of pickguard, multiple control layouts, & more all contribute to T/0’s position as both a unique feeling & sounding Aristides model & as a sonic chameleon that can be tailored to your exact needs as a player. Whether you’re a long time fan of T-Style guitars, or considering your options for high-performance modern instruments, T/0 combines the best strengths of highly-skilled traditional luthiery with the tonal & durability benefits only available from one-piece Arium construction.

What is Arium?

All Aristides instruments are made using a proprietary material called ‘Arium.’ Not only is Arium tonally balanced with rich sustain, it is incredibly stable – all of our guitars are built with an integrally-layered exoskeleton & resonant Arium core. The end result is not only a sustainable instrument that will last a lifetime – but also a guitar built to the highest quality standards by a team of dedicated luthiers. Click below to learn more!

Painted vs. Raw

We offer 2 finishing methods for our instruments. ‘Raw’ models have a colored exoskeleton & offer a lower cost & shorter build time. They have a slightly textured surface & are available in a wide variety of solid colors. Painted guitars give you access to our full array of high gloss, satin, & custom finishes. Raw & Painted models each offer their own unique character: click below to learn more!

We offer a wide variety of custom options including endless finish combinations, Bare Knuckle, EMG, Seymour Duncan, Fishman, & Lundgren pickups, killswitches & rechargeable battery ports, custom tremolo stops, graphic inlays, & much more. Please check out our order form for a full list or get in touch with us directly to discuss your ideas!

Our S/B Bass Series is explicitly designed to offer as many custom options as possible, particularly when it comes to electronics. This includes active pickups such as Fishman & EMG, passive pickups like Nordstrand combined with active preamps such as Darkglass, & more. So please check out our order form for a non-comprehensive list of options or get in touch with us directly to discuss your ideas!

2023 saw our involvement in a massive viral guitar story when we created the world’s first true multiscale EverTune guitar bridge & installed it on an 070SR for Mike Stringer of Spiritbox. Our friends at EverTune gave us their blessing to combine EverTune modules with our own custom-made frame to create the Aristides Guitars EverTune.
