    Killer eq. I have the same setup in my Steve Bailey Warwick. My pickups are Steve sig pickups, the aria is a bit different but I may be wrong.

    Volume and blend stack, bass and treble stack. Volume knob should be a push\pull that activates a mid frequency boost to enhance harmonics. Inside the control cavity there will be a small PCB for the EQ which has a trim pot that determines how much mid boost is given when the knob is pulled. I’m not sure if the Aria has a push\pull for the treble knob, but it’s worth checking. On my Warwick it is a mute.

    For more specific info about the EQ points of the preamp the system is called Steve Bailey Fundamental Fretless and this is the 2 band eq version.
