    Get ready to bang your head!!!!
    Aria Pro II ZZB Explorer Bass (1980's - don't know when)
    Killer "blood splatter" (red on white) original paint job
    Made in Japan (sn#4092767)
    Bolt on 32" scale neck
    gold hardware with Schaller straplock and fine tuning bridge
    rosewood fingerboard
    2 Aria Pro P-Style soapbar pickups
    1vol, 1tone, 1 3 way pickup selector
    It is in excellent condition with no major dings, chips, or wear spots. It looks like it was never gigged with. There is one slight ding on the top edge of the fretboard at the 5th fret. It does not affect playability at all.
    Comes with the original hard shell case!
    Asking price - $350 + shipping

    No doubt about that! I'm thinking NOLA better off this one quietly or that gig with the Neville's if out the window for sure ! No Congo Square for anybody playin' that bass!

    Actually those are awsome basses. I can't think of where I could use one in that color scheme but in a nice 'corporate grey or midnight wine' ...

    I'm totally jealous of that Ashdown score. I'd really like to hear about how that works out for you when you get it. That one is very high on my list of 'Future-pre's'

    Good luck with your sale on the Aria.

    Ha! The thought of playing that bass at Jazz Fest is pretty funny!
    FYI. The Ashdown should ship today, so hopefully I'll have the whole new rig put together by this weekend:
    Ashdown Entwistle preamp
    QSC RMX 1450
    Bergantino HT210S
    Bergantino EX112S
    I'll post a review once it is put together.
