    Today i cam across an 86-87 Aria pro two RSB straycat bass,its in good condition and not overplayed(worn neck/frett wear).
    It has a music man style humbucking p-up,its one piece but its pole pieces are staggered like on a p-bass p-up(2 for E&A and 2 for D&G)and non-active as well.
    I did a search already and found nothing pertaining to this exact bass,its in good condition(7.5 out of 10)and is only 50.00 $.
    I know its a low end bass but it looks like a cool addition to the collection,I think its japanese made judging by its craftsmanship,though its nothing to write home about its cool non-the less.
    Does anyone have any info about this bass ? like where it was made for certain ? original cost ? ETC, I cant imagine passing it up for any reasons other than it being made of a composite wood(particle or plywood)or it does'nt work(i have'nt plugged it into my amp but will today)
    So any info will be great. THANKS

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Those Cat basses were average, at best, for that time period. There was a lot of CRAP being made during those hair metal years, but I seem to recall that the Aria Cats weren't that bad. i actually worked in a music store at that time that sold Arias.

    But hey - it's 50 bucks!! What do you have to lose? Just buy it and play it. If you don't like it, rip it apart and customize the hell out of it.
