Aristides Debuts Raw Series Guitars

The new lineup of guitars aim to give players the same quality and design, but with a simple and rugged finish process that lowers price while also decreasing build time.

Haarlem, Netherlands (April 25, 2019) -- Over the last 10 years, Aristides Instruments have established themselves as a trusted source for alternative-material guitars used by touring musicians worldwide. Their proprietary material “Arium” & one-piece injection-molded construction makes for well-balanced, sustaining tone & a neck resistant to movement in any climate. Of course, this comes at a substantial manufacturing cost, & their new Raw-Series guitars aim to give players the same quality & design but with a simple & rugged finish process that lowers price & decreases build time.

"The Raw Series is the most exciting development for us so far. Raw models are unpainted - dyed in the mold, then hand-sanded & sealed. They’re the exact same quality of instrument with a lower cost & shorter build time. Built with the same design by the same people with the same method & high quality standards. It's a great option for someone who doesn't need a crazy finish. We’re happy that guitarists really see the merit in both our unique construction method & our attention to detail, which can now be brought to more people.”
