    005-Copy.jpg 002-Copy-Copy.jpg 011-Copy.jpg For sale my beloved 1977 Matsumoku made Aria Pro II jazz bass (precise bass)
    The body is the Japanese Ash/Sen and the bass is 9lbs,9 oz. It has newer black and white 70s style pickguard, 80s fender bridge, Schaller strap locks. It needs nothing. Strung with ernie ball cobalt flats. Wired with vol/vol/tone with pull pot series/parallel operation.
    The neck is like a 70's Jazz, extra skinny string spacing at the nut, rounded back and has no issues. frets are in good shape. The inlays are authentic Mother of Toilet Seat. It is a 3 pc. maple neck but only on the headstock, the neck itself is solid 1 pc. with no dings or dents.
    The pickups are real beefy and strong. Bumps and bruises typical of a played 40 yr old instrument, nothing heinous.

    It has a tort guard, but i also will throw in a white guard and the badass was changed out to a vintage 80s fender bridge and the tuners are now gotoh lollipops.
    $600 Shipped CONUS with the neck off to reduce shipping cost.

    I'm a fender guy and I totally agree with you! I had a '77 jazz and this one and this aria slayed the 77 jazz in fit and finish... Nice tight neck joint. great pickups, BEAUTIFUL sunburst. The 77 had gaps at the neck joint big enough to put in a quarter!;)
