My first seven string in quite a few years, didn't want a nasty wait time so I decided to try out one of the new Raw Aristides. From order to delivery I believe it was a total of 8 days. Shout out to Pascal for always being on top with communication. My fourth Aristides, can't say enough good about my dealings with this company. They are putting out some insane builds with quality to match. The R series seems a little lighter than I expected it to be given the weight of my other builds. I've been experimenting with a few string gauges since I've been out of the seven string game for a while. All in all, very pleased, especially like the push pull voicing selection and easy access USB charging built right into the back.
