    I understand that John Taylor has been playing a signature edition of his classic Aria Pro II SB1000 bass during this most recent reunited phase of Duran Duran.

    In fact, I saw a brief clip yesterday of their performance in Toronto, and sure enough, he was playing it. (He was playing "Planet Earth" with a pick.)

    Does anyone have any information on the commercial availability of this bass guitar? There seems to be nothing about it on the Aria website.

    If you look on Johns website - you'll see a gear section where the Aria is mentioned.

    I don't believe the reissue is available here at the moment, but on the Aria japan site you can find info (in Japanese, but some english): - JT reissue - regular sb1000 reissue

    I was just gigging with my '85 SB1000 tonight, in Dead Souls - my Joy Division covers band side project. They're just great basses, very unique sounding, cuts through the mix no problem.
