This was their downfall. Wish I could help you more. The seller told me that is Japanese made in but I want to check it. They wanted to buy him a high-end guitar, but he swore by that Aria. With this combination you had a guitar that could get an acoustical tone as well as the heavy metal blaster sounds with distortion. The TS model came with at least 4 different types of bridges that are different sizes with different holes placements. Email Aria and see if they would be willing to identify it for ya.
Because the price of many of these high-end models was only slightly lower than the cost of some top US brands they were often overlooked and did not sell well in America. And that lasting, clear sustain following. Buy it to play – not to collect. Sprayed some fluid to get them calm. THink I am going to offer it for sale but its fun while it is here. Searching for a minimum of deads spots: In line with the comments above, Arias weren’t necessarily the very best guitars to come out of Japan, but were good players instruments.
I am playing for 20 years. Red PaulDec 14, Their hardware, pots, switches, bridges and pick-ups were not the greatest in older models but by the time the RS Series came out they were much improved and some used Dimarzio pickups.
Last edited by FrankE2Yoo ; This guitar shines everywhere. Where it doesn’t measure up to better MIJ brands is in it’s pickups and electronics, and it’s finish.
Was my 1 for over a decade. Email Aria and see if they would be willing to identify it for ya. Just make sure it’s a made in Japan model. Well, this guitar in 24 years old with all original parts.
I’d like to identify it, but Harmony Central is down. The back covers are matching wood. The Guitar Gallery Segies V3. Login or Sign Up. Join the HC Newsletter. I have seen both FS and SH that appear to be the same guitars and same year.
Aria Pro II CS User Review by Old Tree Frog
This thing cost me about bucks before shipping from japan The Arai company has used different logos yarmony their instruments over the years. Originally Posted by chainsaw fats Can I drink your piss?

Even with both coils together, the neck pickup has the clarity of a Stratocaster when played clean.
Some bridges were made of pot metal. Searching for a minimum of deads spots: They play like butter. You can read and learn about the history of the company here These are in your face guitars that can still be bought for a fair price TS is cheaper. The PE-R80 though it is not a neck-thru, it is a great Les Paul Copy with humbuckers, coil taps, maple top and back, built in heel-less cutaway maple neck, Gold Hardware, matching wood covers on back.
My Les Paul Forum. But, I haven’t yet found something in online pics that matches the model I saw. Tell me about Aria Pro II guitars. This is cardinak very heavy guitar. Registration just went around and around in circles with oi indication of any error until they locked me out for too many attempts. Over the years the Urchin U has proven to be pretty good guitar. The seller is from my city, so I can test the guitar before buying it. But IMHO it was a nice playing guitar for the money.
We put out a call to a friend in Florida qria went trolling pawn shops, and we found three more of them and bought them all. But when people talk about “modding platforms” The insides of the 2 pieces on each side of the neck are carved out and sandwiched back together making the top and back of the guitar solid pieces of hollowed out wood blocks.

You must log in or sign up to reply here. Im sure there’s an aria forum, I would post it over there. So, not sure what’s going on there. Tell me about Aria Pro II guitars With the 2 active EQ pre amps it can deliver many sounds and tones.
Switches and controls are all orginal. Most all were 24 fret with coil taps and out of phase switches. It’s a little hard to find much information about the modern company. In the 80’s they were a dollar a dozen They flooded the market with low-end models. Blistering funky notes – no problem.
Off-Topic: Aria Pro II identification
The RS model is a 12 string electric with 24 frets, ebony fretboard, a 5 piece neck-thru bodies, coil taps and out of phase switches and the highly sensitive hum-free design MH-I Humbucker pickups that were used on the SH Models. View the Media Kit.
