Aria Pro II Avante Series

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by ttekulve, Nov 19, 2004.

  1. I have a dumb question.
    I own a lot of nice basses, Spector, Rickenbacker, Tobias, Fender, Ibanez, Hofner, Yamaha...

    The other day I saw this fretless 4 srting Aria Pro II. The headstock says Avante Series, but it lookks nothing like The Steve Bailey bass, First it;s woodtone. Has a P bass neck pick up and a Jazz bridge pickup. 3 knobs Vol, Vol, Tone. Small boby, bolt on neck.. very thin. It was a mess, but I fixed the neck in the store and it play beautifully. And oddly enough it sounds great!!!

    I paiid $175 for it. Just as a play thing. I dopn't have any fretless basses besides my upright. Does anyone know anything about these basses. When made, is it part of the SteveBaily Avante series? I can't find it on Aria's website or anywhere else.

    Let me know if you guys have any info on this fun little bass.
