Aria Pro II 5 String. HELP!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by lo0nyt0on, Mar 2, 2014.

  1. Im a Pawn Broker & a Bass Player.

    I Recently Had a Bass Fall out that i fell in love with. i bought it.

    Also Has 2 autographs on the Back of the headstock.
    1 For sure is Victor Wooten.

    Ive done Internet Searches and can find info on the 6 String Fretless Bass
    But not the 5 string Fretless.

    Any information on The bass would be really Helpful.
    Price? (im a pawn broker...im not looking to sell..just curious)

    IT sounds Amazing..i love it. and my Gf loves it..so its a keeper in either case..

    So here are the pics

    It looks to be a Bailey model Aria, aside from probably swapped pickups and pickguard.

    But that Victor autograph looks very different than any other one I've seen.
  5. Were they Chines Imported..? Japanese? Korean?
    Whats the History Behind the Bailey models?
  6. Any other info? Anybody?
  7. bump

    I believe they were Japanese made as I saw them when I lived in Japan in the early to late 90's but they could be Korean made. They were pretty pricey at the time, well made n definitely not junk. I don't think any major makers had factories in China during that time but I could be wrong.... Hope this helps a bit.

    Nope, that one's Korean, and a nice one at that. Very similar to the Avante series instruments. I see aftermarket pickups, but other than that, stock.

    Signatures, if authentic, could have been part of a trade show promotion or contest giveaway. There's more to this than meets the eye...if it could only talk...
