    My first 7-string in a long time (since I had a J-custom a few years back). It's tuned in Drop F.

    Here's a clip of how it sounds:


    Here are some pics:

    Single hum/no controls is so awesome—I've always wanted to get a custom of some sort done with this configuration. Looks killer!

    Reminds me of the EBMM Bongos. Must be the headstock.

    I love the spartan design though. Single hum, no controls, weathered black...I dig it.

    Oh my......

    Congrats! That looks awesome. I'm starting to see more of these S models, but they still aren't on their site.

    Have wanted many times to ditch the knobs and just have a selector switch or kill switch.

    Congrats. Looks outstanding.

    Interesting, been wondering what the R models they've talked about would be. Is it just a finish thing then?

    Also initially the 070S's I saw I thought they looked abit strange, but now this has got my Aristides and my FF hype on again. HNGD

    They're not painted and have fairly fixed specs I think.

    Sick guitar, I can't wait to see more R series come out.

    Thanks, guys :)

    The Raw series is dyed in the mold. There is no painting process involved which means a lower price-point and quicker turn around time. They are even considering have some raws as in-stocks so people can just buy a guitar without waiting. It'll be interesting to see what happens in 2019 :)

    Lundgren M7 straight to the jack, gotta love it haha. That's kickass brotha, I've been considering an 070SR for C Standard/Drop F riffage myself. Just gotta save up after my next two.

    Your new builds are looking awesome :D

    The regular 070S has a base price of 2990 Euro. Not sure what they will be charging for the raw version.

    This is actually very exciting news.
    I love Aristides, and even though I can't afford to snag one yet, I'd really like to see their brand grow. They're doing some killer work over there.
