    Up for grabs is my 1983 Aria Pro II SB1000 in Padouk Red. This is one of 3 SB1000's that I've had the pleasure of owning. I had this imported from Japan about 4 years ago and in that time it has never left my home. I've only used it for recording and some jam sessions in house. The instrument is in excellent overall condition, especially considering its' age. The body has some minor blemishes...mostly light scratches and scuffs. Frets are in very good shape. The truss works properly as does the all-original electronics.

    Specs are as follows:
    -Canadian Ash body
    -Maple neck, Ebony fingerboard
    -MB-1E double coil pickup
    -controls: 1 volume, 1 tone, 6 position attack mode rotary switch, mode selector switch (active/passive)
    -LED battery indicator
    -solid brass bridge and nut
    -narrow 16mm string spacing

    My postal scale puts this bass at just a hair over 11 lbs.
    I will ship the bass in a brand new Fender gig bag.

    I'm asking $850 shipped to the CONUS via FedEx with full coverage. Payment accepted via money order or verified Paypal with a confirmed shipping address.

    No trades please.

    Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks, Talkbass.

    I wish I had the money. Got all kinds of other Aria Pro IIs but still looking for an SB1000.

    Wow; this guy bailed on a couple of deals. Not sure it would be good idea to deal with this guy. Too bad; nice Aria.
