FS: Aria Pro SB1000-JT, the John Taylor model!
Up for sale is kind of a rare beast... an ARIA PRO SB1000-JT. This is the model, made in Japan around 2004, that was designed in collaboration with John Taylor of Duran Duran and Power Station fame.
It's part of their "Super Grade Series".
The differences from the standard model seem to be the black hardware, mostly. Speaking of that, the original bridge wasn't working to allow the action low enough, so it was replaced with a Hipshot A brass and that fixed the issue.
It's in really good shape, very little in the way of wear to speak of. Signs of playing, but no damage.
Ash body, in the "Oak" colored finish
Maple/Mahogany 5 ply neck thru
Ebony 24 fret fingerboard, 40mm brass nut
Vol-Tone-6way rotary, with LED indicator, 18v preamp
Schaller straplock buttons
Weighs 10-11 lbs, approx.
Includes the documentation shown above, it's in Japanese!
Ritter gig bag
$820 shipped SOLD
Paypal or Money order only
PM with questions or make me an offer.
TRADES WELCOMED! In search of (but not limited to):

that's really beautiful bump
What a gem, bass bro!
Thanks for the kind words! You guys all rock!
Hey just stumbled on this listing. How cool?!
As the resident TB community designated Matsumoku expert up here, these basses are the Holy Grail and I don't mean to be irreverent. The SB1000 is THE bass that gave me the collecting bug let along the Matsumoku bug.
This model is the crown jewel. And while this is not a dead on replica of the original it is pretty darn close and the fact that it is a John Taylor model makes it more than worth the price to a Duranie like myself. Heck, people paid more than this for a cheap and cheesy JT signature peavy bass sold at Nieman Marcus just a few years ago. When you can have THE bass sound of RIO and Seven and the Ragged Tiger for the same price or less, and own a piece of history (this artist signature model came out around when JT reunited with the Fab Five in the early and roaring aughts), how could you turn that down?!
Big, strong, healthy, enthusiastic resident TB Matusmoku-guy bump from yours truly.
Oh, and Adam is hands down the best TBer there is whether you are buying, selling, trading, etc. and I say that from experience cuz I have bought from him and he knows his stuff.
In other words, cool listing, GLWTS, this won't be here long!
Wow! That's one hell of a shining endorsement! You're making me blush...
(So I make the check out to "Roger B Miller", right? :D)
Price drop... and feel free to make offers! It's OBO.
Buy this bass and you will have a chance at being as good looking JT!
Bump for a sweet bass and great seller, that 800rb you sold me still gets rocked 2 times a week and never misses a beat.
PMs replied and I also opened this up to trades as well.
Looks like this is open game again.
I'd like to sell it, honestly, because there's a ton of cool stuff out there. But I'll do the right trade, +/- cash as needed.
The seller and this bass are top notch!
Man, I want this......just need to sell one of mine!:cool:
Been searching for an SB 1000 and came across your ad. Seriously interested in this bass - would you ship to the UK?
