    Hi, I've got an Aria Pro II SB-Integra for sale. SOLD It's an '86 and was made in Japan. This is the first generation of the Integra series, and the best in my opinion. I'm only selling this one because I have another one in mint condition that I'm hanging onto. These are pretty cool basses and the same model Billy Gould used on Faith No More's The Real Thing and Introduce Yourself. It is a 34" scale, 24 frets, has a three piece maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, basswood body, active P/J pickups and bass, treble, pickup balance, and volume for controls. It has a very comfortable neck and a small body.
    I just had it setup with 45-105 Blue Steels...

    A couple of things that should be mentioned: First, I had my tech do the "washer trick" on the truss rod to give it an extra turn or so. It's setup with nice, low action at the moment. The neck is straight. Second, when you turn the bass all the way down, it also turns the volume down. I'm not sure why this is happening. Controls seem to be fine otherwise, though.

    I recorded a short demo to try and give some idea of the sound of the bass. There are also pictures on this video:

    Also, here is a catalog page giving all of the specs:

    It's definitely in "used" condition so there are plenty of dings, scratches, and dents on it.

    I'm asking $400, plus shipping (probably around $50-60 via USPS, I have a big box for it for extra protection). SOLD. I will ship worldwide, too. I have a decently padded gig that I'm including. I'm not really looking for any trades at the moment.
    Thanks!

    A common fix is to back out the truss rod nut, modify a couple of washers so they will slide over the truss rod as spacers, then re-install the truss rod nut. Gives you more adjustment. :cool:

    Actually, the bass is still for sale! We had a little mix up where the buyer already bought this same model before...from me! :) So, this Integra is still up for grabs.
