Hello, up for sale is a 1986 Aria Pro II SB-Integra in white (cream now) finish. The price is $275 plus actual shipping from Japan (EMS). I would detach the neck to save some money on shipping, but I would still guess at around $100-115 to the US.
This is the original model from the Integra line and the model with the best construction, in my opinion. They have three piece necks as opposed to the scarf joint construction on most Integras. This model was used by Billy Gould of Faith No More
, Michael Anthony of Van Halen
and a few other pro players back in the day. If you like the tone Gould got on "Introduce Yourself" or "The Real Thing" then this bass will definitely do that for you.
Here are the specs from an '86 catalog:
This particular bass shows plenty of wear (see pics) but is structurally fine. There is a small chip in the treble side of the rosewood fingerboard, near the nut plus some big chips in the finish on the side and top of the headstock as well. There is some pretty bad belt buckle rash, too. Also, hairline cracks in the finish are forming on the back of the headstock and at the nut on the bass side. Again, check out the photos and please ask any questions you might have.
I had the bass setup with D'Addario .45, .65, .80, .100 nickel rounds. The truss rod turns and the neck is straight. However, I would say you'll need to level some of the higher frets if you want super low action. The tech said that the frets in the higher register were a bit higher causing fret buzz if you set the action lower. Right now it's a medium action and plays comfortably but if you want it lower you'll probably need to do some fret work.
I had to replace the nut and saddles with spare SB Integra parts I had lying around (I knew those would come in handy some day!) so it's all original except for the Schaller strap lock strap pins (only the base parts).
Thanks for viewing!
