    It's a shame but Aria basses just don't seem to have a distinct identity. Jack of all trades thing going on. :meh:

    +1...I can get just about any sound I need, and it's very expressive...I'm hoping my upgrade is not actually a downgrade...

    Wow...checked that one out again, and noticed that it's actually a CTB, and looks basically the same as my Magna.

    CTB was late 80's, and Magna was early 90's (mine 91)

    I wonder if there are any significant changes, or just a name change....anybody know?

    My Newest Baby3. Hey! I'm In! I just got an Aria Pro II STB series PJ! Heavan! Neck of the GODS! I am not sure how old this axe is, but the serial # is 5014952. I got it from E-Bay, and I am most happy! Any Idea as to the age of my newest axe? Here are the blurry pictures fo E-Bay:

    The two-pickup version of this bass is where my username comes from. Owned it, played it, loved it, tried to mod it anyhow and ended up selling it for waaaay less than I paid for it.

    Pretty sure that STB's were made in 1993 only

    ok, here's mine. I don't have the sb-elite ii anymore, I just wasn't playing it much. But the sb-1000 just has that incredibly unique tone.

    I had one a few years back, played nice, weighed a ton. I sold it to Daddy's Junky Music (and got completely ripped off), last I knew they had it in their flagship NH store.

    crappy pic...god, I'm hairy:

    You can actually see a strap in there? Wow, better eyes that me. It's just a regular 2" nylon strap, has this funky little cross combined with a G-clef sign.
     
  14. I have an Aria deal in the works as well as second possible deal with a local music store. Is there anywhere on the internet that explains exactly what models where produced in Japan VS Korea?? Also, anyone have any pics of Arias from the Japan Custom Shop??

    I had an Aria years ago and have always missed that bass. I haven't seen pics of one similar here, I forgot what model it was :confused:
     
  15. I like the yellow logo on the strap :)
     
  16. Here's mine. It's not my main bass, though. I have an 83 Ibanez Musician for the front line duty. My SB is what I use for the E flat stuff (VH, Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel)

    It's an 84 model which I've owned for 10 years and has been well taken care of. Original case too. I love this bass, but it's not as easy to play as my Musician.

    What do you guys think of the SB's?

    DON'T!!!....I've thought the same thing many many many times, and I can't either....do like me....upgrade

    with your's being a 4 banger, I'd throw some Barts in there, and let her continues kicking butt.
