Give it to me for free and I'll try restore it.
A quick wipe down with some polish and new strings and it'll be good to go...
But seriously, WHAT HAPPENED?
This old Aria has been bolted to the "guitar wall" for 7 years outside at Matt's Music in Templeton, CA. I just got the pickups and one still works!
I think this would be a good learning project. I would definitely give it a go.
It's not mine. I only got the pickups
That's a miracle one of the pickups still works! I can only assume the bass was written off as unplayable/unfixable before they put it up on the wall. Still, NOT something I would do to an SB Series bass!
If the store would let you have it I would pay all the costs to get it here. I have some ideas that would keep the weathered look but possibly make it playable. Sort of keep its history but give it a future. Depending if the neck is salvageable. Most Aria Pro II's are well kept so this would be sooooo different.
Thanks but I just don't have time to deal with it. Though you may try calling them directly and asking if you could buy it? It's pretty thrashed.
Anyone here who can help me with this?:
How to wire the HPF/LPF active preamp circuit from my Aria Pro II Laser Electric Classic?
Thank you for your answers. I desoldered the pickups, and both pickups have a dead coil. I guess I'll be getting a pair of MB-IIs from Rautia.
Check this oddity on Ishibashi. Looks sweet, but just a little, well, odd!

Not sure I like the bridge and pickup configuration though.
Wow, that B string anchoring...
not original Pickup and Wilkinson bridge.....FrankenSB-025
Definitely on my to get list.
If it was stock I'd be on it. I don't care for the modifications.
How's everyone liking the Rautia pickups? Thinking about a Music Man type for my CSB, corresponded with Mr. Rautia, he seems nice and responsive. Do they drop right in?
Would anybody be interested in a trade for a tsb-650?
CSBs don't have a switch so a large part of your tonal options won't be utilized. I have mine going in an Elite I. I'm just deciding weather to go with a two or three position switch.
