    NBD: Aristides 050 Aluminum

    Hey guys,

    Picked up this Aristides 050 in Aluminum and thought I would share some pics!

    The bass is finished in aluminum which is not only unique as a finish choice but smooth to the touch (which is fantastic for the neck). That is of course finished on the Arium body, which is the main thing that separates Aristides from other companies. The only piece of wood on the bass is the rosewood fretboard, but all this works together quite wonderfully for the tone of the instrument. It excels at the scooped and aggressive bass tones making this ideal for heavier material and lower tunings. The pickups are Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders, and they sound fantastic!

    Holy shit! That is incredible. I love the stuff Aristides put out. You've got a good collection of these going now. 3 or 4 now?

    Looks pretty good.

    What's the string spacing on that? Also, what kind of preamp is onboard?

    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    If they recessed the knobs and the bridge a bit, it would be even more spaceship looking. However that looks absolutely kick ass as is, the color is great.
