    These are nice basses.

    Brand new with a case for $434. Excellent.

    I just bought one with case. 15 minutes later, Sweetwater called to make sure everything was as I had wanted it.

    Great customer service as always from Sweetwater.

    If it weren't for the short scale neck, I'd have grabbed one myself. Instead, I have my eye on a Dearmond Starfire bass to fill my hollowbody needs. That Ibby sure looks sweet though - I suppose at that price I can easily flip it if it doesn't float my boat.

    The DeArmond Starfires are beautiful instruments. Haven't played one, but I'm sure it's in a different class than the Aria hollow bodies.

    I figured for $299, I can scratch my hollow body itch Like you say, I could flip it for something better if I really get into the hollow body vibe.

    I grabbed one for that price from Sweetwater and it arrived two days ago. What an awesome bass. I just put some flatwounds on it,am even more excited now and am now looking for a gig bag.

    This is my first experience with a short scale neck, but I found it very easy to just start playing, and I really like the short scale neck on this.
