    Got this recently via trade, cool bass and very THUMPY but I've decided to go back to fewer instruments and 34" scale. This is a medium scale (32") Aria Pro II Cardinal, model CSB-380, one reverse-P type (MB-IV) pickup and V/T knobs. Inset high-mass bridge, similar to a Badass but with quick release. 2x2 headstock, neck width is 1 5/8" at the nut. Not too heavy at 8 lbs and balances well. Ash body with a beautiful dark walnut finish. Currently strung with LaBella flats. More info here:

    Aria Pro II CSB Series

    Plays very easily, action is low and the pot/cap combo is very effective to dial back to a dub tone. The instrument is in really good shape, just some slight buckle rash on the back and 3 small dings on the side (pictured).

    I'd like $265 plus actual Fedex shipping from 60660, shipping weight of around 20 lbs on a box roughly 50 x 22 x 8. Includes a functional but nothing-to-write-home-about hardshell case.

    Not really looking for trades but currently scoping out magnetic+piezo fretless 4 strings, preferably with acoustic-type bridges. Pics below, and please PM with any questions etc...

    Thanks!

    Fantastic bass. I own a few in various models/configurations and have owned even more. Great sound. Listen to "Gigantic" by the Pixies for reference.

    If I were not in the midst of streamlining my bass holdings (i.e getting rid of duplicates) I would be all over this.

    Thanks Roger. I think everyone should have a medium scale with flats...and, well, I have two, so think I can part with this one...
