    Playing a pink guitar gives you bonus XP that you can use to enhance whatever attribute/skill you need. It can sound better, it can play faster, it can be more metal....etc. I'm looking into how much of this is lost when going shell pink because there's a big chance I'm going shell pink for the next build, and let's face it, shell pink is a weaker pink.

    Tone Paint is real! Dark green is the best. Black is a close second. White is for special things.

    reason why I got a magenta guitar, its bit more snappy than traditional pink, which I like for metal

    Pink lightning crackle comes with “Auto-Aqua Net” so it saves your gold coins on consumables.

    Dark blue raises your DEX, good for string skipping and weird jazz chords

    Is that some random guy's photoshop? It's pixelated. And pretty gross.

    Love the 2 jacks. Right/conventional one for typical classical position where your leg is in the bridge cut. Left one for standing hooked through strap, or 'Strandberg classical position' with the right jack on your leg.

    I just wonder how they are doing the internal switching. Otherwise both jacks are open.

    Yeah I don't know how two jacks works, but I saw one other luthier doing it earlier this year too. No real disadvantage having them just wired together no?

    Looks like a legit CAD render to me? Just pixelated indeed.
    I found it here, 11 days ago: https://www.facebook.com/yessguitar/photos/a.1452758328172565/2951928401588876/?type=3&theater Official Aristides dealer

    Anyone interested in getting the first lot. Say hello to Yess express. On behalf of the dealer of Thailand, there are 2 Quota. Choose Spec before production.

    Otherwise these 2 will come in purple With absolute blue

    This lot is the first lot in the world. There are 20 of them. Can get to the end of this year.

    Miss this lot. Must wait to order again later. Opening Namm event next year. If still able to organize

    I've never done this to test it out but if they are both open theoretically the other jack will pick up some noise.

    but it should just work like an ab pedal so in practice it should be fine.

    Sorry, for some reason SSO doesn't always send me emails about new replies to this thread (nor do I get emails on tags) and I honestly lost track of it for a bit. That being said, I owe you guys a couple of answers!

    Warranty - We don't technically have a warranty, but I can very confidently state that it's always our goal to make sure people are 100% happy with their guitars. I totally get that a warranty gives the consumer something to feel good about, kind of, but it's almost always written in a way that's advantageous to the company. It can also have this weird effect of causing the company to only stick with what's stated in the warranty.

    It's a riskier proposition for the customer to accept, but we'd rather say "hey, just hit us up if you ever need anything, and let's figure it out." I've shipped switches and pots to guys who bought our guitars secondhand. I've hopped on calls to help people with setups. We had a customer who took a big risk (without having played or done it before) with string gauge and tuning on his brand new custom. When it didn't pan out like he thought it would, we told him to send it back so we could, at no cost, put on a new nut and set it up for another tuning. I can't sit here and tell you we'll always fix everything for free, but we definitely own and will go to the ends of the earth to fix mistakes we've made (those can and do happen), and we'll always try to find a way to help customers with their issues.

    H/0 Leak - That's a real image, despite the lack of pixels. We don't have any built models yet, but that should change in the very near future ;). The H/07 is slated to be the first build we manufacture with the H/06 and H/08 following shortly after.

    Lundgren Pickups - We have access to the full range of Lundgren pickups in all of our guitars. Even singles in our multiscale guitars!


    Again, sorry for the delay. I had to play catch-up over a couple of pages and might have missed something, so hit me up if I can help!

    From Aristides' IG to Reverb in 11 days. Is this a new record?

    quick edit to add: to be fair, the raw 060 I tried felt very different than other Aristides guitars. I liked it (and I am most likely ordering a raw T/0 or H/0 or both) but I can see how some people could find it completely off.
