    hey guys. i know i dont post here often (i cant contribute much anyway!) but i need your guys' help!

    i found a deal on an aria pro II bass, ive been told it's a RSB (IM PRETTY sure thats what it's called) "smooth neck joint" bass. it's like called an "original" or something.
    i have a pic of it on the attatchment.

    please, anyone with any experience, let me know what you think about these basses! i might be able to get a good deal on one!

    thanks a lot :)

    thanks again...
     
  3. I bought recently an Aria Pro II defretted FB Series bass. Pretty well constructed bass, made in Japan, but stock electronics are... well... they need to be changed, IMO.

    My experience with Aria Pro II is good, i have tested many models, specially FBs (PJ), AVB (PJ) and STBs (P)... they are good basses for the price, better than any Squier or Epiphone that i played in the same price range.

    Often, Aria Pro II's comes with an horrible setup, so beware.

    well i think this bass is passive, so not a lot of electronics other than the pickup!

    also, i might get this thing for like 50-70 bucks...i just wanna know what kind of quality we're talkin about here. if it's worth modding up i'll get it, as long as i can still get it for cheap.
     
  5. I bought my Aria Pro II with modding intensions, it's a good "base" bass to start tweaking it a lot.
