Retro Aria bass guitar up for grabs. Collection only at this stage from Milton Keynes (or can perhaps deliver to somewhere reasonably close by)

Price is £170 o.n.o

Aria Pro II IB-STD

Pretty rare retro 4 string bass from ~1989. Very good condition for age, a nick on the bottom and a hairline crack (both pictured) are the only significant blemishes . Contoured body finished in a lovely pearlescent white. Has a phenolic fingerboard, Aria CJ-3 single coil pickups and recently fitted with Ernie Ball Slinky strings. Comes with stand and original strap

That is nice and I remember wanting one of the in the early 90's, I went for a collection bass instead, I haven't played for year but picked up a ukulele last week and really like playing again.

Wow that's nice.

I have an SB600 that I have had from new. I used it for a few years before going to an Ibanez fretless.

The fretless is long gone, but occasionally the Aria comes out for a rattle'n'buzz...
