Description

Steve Fischer builds steel strings to respond as well as classicals—and his petite Aria model is a fingerstylist’s favorite. This beauty from 2018 is approximately a 00 proportionately, with an intimate and engrossing voice that scales well when you lean in with a more aggressive attack. The fan-braced Alaskan Yellow Cedar top is responsive to a T, and its warmth pairs up nicely with the dry projection of its Honduran Mahogany back and sides. 25 1/4” scale threads the needle between crisp and round tones, and keeps playability effortless. Steve upgraded this one with a sultry sunburst on top and Spalted Maple rosette, Quilted Sapele bindings, slotted headstock, and Waverly tuners. Additionally, this Fischer Aria is outfitted with an L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup system, which faithfully translates the warmth and precision right into amplified territory. Weighs in under four pounds! Petite, yet powerful.

This is a fingerstyle steel string for someone who enjoys the sensibility of a classical guitar. By that I mean the round, smooth attack of a nylon string, here combined with the brightness of a steel string.
