I love that two tone look of a gold bridge with black hardware accents. I know people don’t like gold in general (me included) but on certain colors it looks killer. That’s a great look, @getowned7474 !

That picture is just from a random guitar online not mine sadly. I just based my color scheme for my order (mostly) off of that. I thought the two tone looks great and the gold goes very well with the rose gold chameleon finish for sure. I considered going for a two tone chrome with gold saddles and pickup screws like PRS. Wanted something a bit more vintage inspired so ended up choosing chrome. If any finish was suitable for gold though this is the one.

I love Aristides. I've a 060R. It's extremely well built superstrat akin to to Suhr models.

Got word that my build is finally completed and shipping out next Tuesday! Now I can stop checking my email eight times a day on average like a lunatic.
Sick!

Just wondering, how often did you get updates? I placed my order in May and only got one update so far, of my fretboard.

Mine was similar, though the very first update was a render of the fretboard due to the custom inlay I had requested.
They sent me a picture of the body+fretboard when it was ready for the electronics / hardware and sent me the final pictures akin to what you see on their social media when it was ready to ship.
Any day now...

I ordered very basic build in April and had no update except when I emailed them. Very prompt reply with pictures.

I was going to tag you, but it doesn’t have a trem :lol:
I know - as much as I want one, I won't order one because A) They're expensive new! B) Apparently there is a trem being worked on?

But yeah, a sparkle (twinkle-ish!) pink looking version like this, with a light FB, would be killer. OR, a shell pink one, with gold hardware, and a light board. Those two really are killer finishes they've got. Just the exact right shades of pink.

Can someone just order a None Pizza With Left Beef Aristides already and get it over with? This thread has gone on long enough.

The thought of a 9-string trem makes me want to hyperventilate.
What a time to be alive for guitar nerds.

Can anyone tell me whether they stick to their estimated build times? The raw is 6-9 months according to the site..
