Ciari Guitars made some serious waves at NAMM this year thanks to their brand new Ascender Standard model. The model was created in collaboration with Grover Jackson and Joe Glaser, and is about $1,000 cheaper than their previous Ascender Custom model. Oh, and it folds in half – which is really the main takeaway here.
The Ascender Standard is available in Black, Blue, Red, Natural and Seafoam finishes and offers a Basswood body, Mahogany neck with Pau Ferro fretboard, and 22 frets. The Ascender Standard comes loaded with Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucking pickups and also folds in half. Which is very important.
The Ascender Standard, which folds in half, is available here for $1,799.
