    I recently got these basses in on a trade for another bass, and i don't have enough room for everything! All of the basses function, play and sound great. I'm all have gig bags except for the aria, which has an old chipboard case. Everything will be packed professionally. Let's get on with this, shall we?

    -Mpg level 5-$1000 SOLD
    Flamed and spalted maple top
    Light ash body
    Maple neck
    Birdseye maple fb
    Delano pickup
    Ebmm preamp
    8.3lbs

    -Aria Pro II Precise bass-$500
    Alder body(?)
    Maple neck & fb
    Upgraded pickups and wiring (original incl)
    Schaller tuners
    3tsb
    9lbs 5oz

    -Sterling SUB sb4-$250 SOLD
    Alder body
    Maple neck & fb
    Under 8lbs
    Delano Delano MC4 AL/V4 4 String MusicMan Size Dual Coil Pickup
    Bartolini NTBT
    Hipshot HB1 black tuners

    Now, all of these basses have wear from actually being played, but nothing that effects the playability. Truss rods all turn as they should and frets are good to go. Action is setup low on all as well. Not really looking for trades for the cheaper basses, but would consider an Adam Clayton jazz, a 63 reissue p bass and similar for the mpg....maybe another bass if you spilt shipping, and depending on the bass offered. Thanks TB

    I used to have the MPG and was the one who changed the pickup and preamp. That bass is AMAZING!

    Ok, I'm over it.

    Let me just say that this Aria is golden. I had one, and a matching 77 Jazz copy (also a Precise Bass:eyebrow:). This is the year they got it right. Except the octave dots are too close together. I find that endearing though. Have you actually measured this nut? Mine was Jazz width. Also endearing:bassist:

    Actually just ran all over the house to get my tape measure, but it's a standard p width.

    But yes! The 77 is the golden year for this bass! This is my second one, and it will rival any similar period pbass, without a doubt.
