    Only up for sale because I have 2 more incoming, and I am not playing enough 8 to warrant such a high end machine just sitting in the studio.

    If you're looking at This you probably know know what it is, but just in case... Aristides are a company out of the Netherlands doing AMAZING work that NO ONE else is doing. There is zero wood in this guitar (it's a proprietary composite called Arium) and it's by far the most resonant instrument I've owned (and trust me, I've owned pretty much everything lol).

    The Juggernauts sound killer in this one. (I have a couple more here in the studio with the custom pickups in them- both sound good, but the Jugs have a little more "edge" and growl than the customs, IMHO).

    The IMPECCABLE fret work on these (and the crazy straight neck due to it not being as susceptible to humidity and weather) lets this one get stupid low action. Obviously you can raise it. I am primarily a legato/fusion player, so I prefer low action, and I have had this pretty much as low as my Vigier Shawn Lane was (and if you know the Vigier, you know how stupid the action on those is).

    I can say this, if this sells, I WILL be buying another one. Wait right now is almost a year- and will only get longer. Here's a mint condition one for a lot less and you can have it NOW. ;)

    I AM open to offers. Not gonna give it away, but shoot me what you have in mind. Who knows.

    Comes with the custom Mono bag, Aristides Mono strap, tools, certificate of Authenticity, etc... all the goodies it shipped with.

    Bump for an amazing deal. I'd grab this if I hadn't just bought an Axe-Fx and Dingwall NG-2.

    Do we know how this material lasts over time? I'm seriously considering one of these (this one maybe?) at some time, but I'm worried about it breaking down, etc.

    Coming from the inside of the company (Pascal), it will literally outlast us by a good bit. In other words, it's not a concern ;)
