1984 Aria SB Special II Gloss Black

Out of Stock

Product Description

Great bass from made in Matsumoku Japan. Very rare instrument. As far as I know there was only 1000 produced.

The guitar has very interesting electronics. There is full control of each pickup. In addition to the standard 3-position switch, each of them can be switched in series or parallel. Also there is a possibility to mix coils from each pickups.

This gives a full range of sounds we can get from the bass. It’s classic precision bass or jazz bass and all their derivatives in one instrument.

The body is made of ash, a neck from a tiger maple with rosewood fingerboard, which makes an amazing live impression. It have narrow frets nailed on it. A heavy bridge typical of Aria from this period.

The guitar did not have a light life, you can see that it was played a lot. Has a lot of scratches, dents and lacquer cracks. I think it is visible on pictures. For sure this bass will need some attenction but is really worth it.

Despite this, it looks very good, feels amazing in hands
and plays very well. Really Great instrument with heart and soul.
