NAMM 2024: Ciari Guitars, the company behind the world’s only pro-quality and stage-ready folding guitar is now available with twin P-90 pickups. The Ciari Ascender was previously available with Fishman Fluence pickups built-in, but now the Nashville brand has added the blues and punk favorites as an option.

Both spec choices are part of the Ascender Plus range and come with a rechargeable battery. That’s a big cost-saver in the long run as the duo of pickup options offer two completely different tonal personalities to its unique folding guitar range. The P-90 model costs $1,699 whilst a Fishman-loaded model rises to $2,099.
