MUSIKMESSE: Arisitides Introduce The New O2O 'Arium' Guitar

Pascal Langelaar from Dutch Guitar and Bass manufacturers Aristides Instruments introduces the brand new 020 model at Musikmesse 2013. Listen to the guitar in the video below. 



Like the 010 guitar, the Aristides 020 is a one-piece construction made out of Arium, equipped with two Seymour Duncan humbuckers (SHN2 and TB4) switchable through  a 3way toggle switch and a push/pull volume pot and a Graph Tech NW2 bridge. Arium is developed by Dutch engineer and genius in acoustic science Aristides Poort. The tonematerial is extremely hard and its unique cell structure is responsible for the unprecedented quality of sustain and resonance.
