The Ascender™ Standard+, boasting a gloss finish with binding and our premium electronics, is another evolution (and elevation!) of the world’s first and only patented, professional-grade, full-sized, folding electric guitar.

Combining award-winning design with expert luthier craftsmanship, the Ascender Standard+ embraces an asymmetric, surf-forward body shape, gloss finish with binding, 3+3 headstock, natural-neck finish with ebony fingerboard, Ciari locking tuners, master tone and volume, dual Seymour Duncan 59s, premium electronics (push/pull pot coil splitting on each pick-up), and a distinctive and stylish pick guard.

Compact, foldable, and packing huge sound with unparalleled tone, the Ascender Standard+ is uniquely designed for the modern musician who demands precision, portability, and most of all…performance. That’s why we use highly accurate, computer-controlled PLEK machining technology to optimize EVERY Ascender Standard+ neck, ensuring perfect action and flawless playability.

Our patented folding system combines an aircraft-grade mid-neck hinge, a translating locking strut to selectively immobilize the hinge, and a floating tail piece to selectively tighten and loosen the strings, which enables the Ascender Standard+ to fold in half symmetrically for a folded length of 18.5”. When the Ascender Standard+ is folded, elegant string management keeps the strings in place and under light tension (~3 lbs.). Our custom locking tuners ensure everything stays crisp and in tune when unfolded for play.

The Ascender Standard+ boasts a gloss finish in 2 classic colors: Black with White Binding and White with Black Binding.

Left-handed option is available at no charge.

The Ascender Standard+ comes with a stylish, quilted Ciari Gig Bag. For the ultimate in travel convenience, throw it in our durable personal-item size Ciari Backpack, sold separately.
