    A friend left this bass with me as he was going to China for an extended visit and said 'sell it or play it'
    I 've never seen one before and was shocked at how well it played and sounded. It is a 7 peice neck-through with a single soapbar pickup. It is very clean. Anybody here know this bass? Thanks...

    I have an Aria Pro II that is very similiar to that one. Mine is a TSB (Thor Sound Bass). It looks just like that one at Bunny Bass (minus the rotary switch). It is a very nice instrument. It has the lowest action and fastest neck of any of my basses.

    Turock, this bass has a wonderfully fast neck but the sound really amazes me. The serial number is 100124 which is probably an old one. I have no idea what the market value is.
     
  5. I have one too. Keep it, you'll love it. I put DR Marcus Miller Strings on mine, and, wow, what a great sound.
