    Here's an Aria Pro II IGB-550 (aka IGB-STD in the US catalog) Integra bass. This is the passive version of what Billy Gould used around 1990-1992 with Faith No More (he used the IGB-600 or IGB-DLX as it was called in the US). This bass gets that tone he had on the legendary "Angel Dust" album but does not have the extra bass and treble controls that his model had. Also, it has chrome hardware rather than black. These basses are very hard to find in the US so if you're a Billy Gould fan but don't have the cash for his Zon Sonus signature bass, this might be for you. Obviously this is not a Zon quality instrument, but it is quite nice for its price.

    This bass is excellent cosmetic condition but there are a few small dents and scratches. Overall, it looks as though this has been played very little over the years. Please see the photos for most of the more significant blemishes. Fret wear is very minimal.

    I have owned several IGB-600s and IGB-550s and all of the 550s have seemed to have had higher build quality - especially the necks! IGB-600s often had wonky necks in my experience. But the 550s have all been straight, this one included. I believe these were built in Korea but there is no indication on the bass, just the serial number. Aria started moving a lot of production to Korea at that time, though. The only other possibility would be Japan on this model. Although it is a light bass, it does not feel cheap.

    Quick specs: soft maple body with a "carved top", maple neck (scarf joint construction), Gotoh tuners, unlabeled Aria bridge, 24 frets, full 34" scale, 1 volume for the "P" pickup, 1 for the "J" and 1 tone control.

    Shipping is $50 in the US, more internationally, depending on location. Thanks
