Dutch made-to-order luthier Aristides has brought the world’s first EverTune bridge for six, seven and eight-string multiscale guitars to market ahead of NAMM 2024. Plugging a considerable hole in the market, it comes after the brand partnered with EverTune last year to create a solution.

EverTune's patented all-mechanical bridge systems work to provide greater tuning stability, with its physics-bolstered series of springs and levers designed to maintain constant tension on each individual string. The system operates effectively in a variety of extreme conditions, creating arguably the most reliable tuning system in the world. Until now, however, these fixed bridges haven't been an option for multiscale players.
