Hi, I have two Aria Pro II IGB basses for sale. These are for the Billy Gould and Faith No More fans!
The first is the IGB-550 (or IGB-STD)
which has been heavily upgraded/modified with black hardware (Gotoh tuners and a Fernandes branded, Gotoh bridge). I also had some Ibanez SR1000E Ibanez USA pickups installed including the active "power curve" electronics (the electronics cavity has also been shielded). These pickups give a huge tonal variety while keeping the essence of the original tone of the Integra. I had everything professionally installed, but the original bridge screw holes are slightly visible (see pics) though not distracting. Also, one of the tuner gear covers fell off, leaving the gears exposed. The function is not effected. I had the bass setup a couple years back with Fender roundwound steels (45-105) but since I was out of country for most of the time since then, the strings are almost like new. This is a very light weight and comfortable bass to play! The neck is straight and has no problems. I'll include a brand new Aria gig bag. My price is $375 shipped CONUS, USPS parcel post.

The other IGB is a stock IGB-DLX (US name) or IGB-600 (Japanese name)
, which is what Billy Gould used to record FNM's "Angel Dust" album.
I had this bass setup recently with Robert Trujillo Dunlop 45-102 strings and the tech installed a shim under the neck and a couple washers on the truss rod to give some extra turns. It plays very well but if you dig in TOO hard it will buzz a bit on the second fret. Overall though, it's a great player and nails the "Angel Dust" tone, like Billy gets here
