    Selling my "heavy-relic" Aria ProII TSB-400 "Thor Sound" bass. Plays very well, so all damage is strictly cosmetic. Pickups are really unique-sounding, which is why I'm hesitant to let it go. Never left the smoke-free home during my ownership, but it did get dropped on concrete basement floor (as evidenced in pictures).

    Strongly prefer local pickup (Indianapolis and surrounding cities, such as Anderson, Bloomington, etc.). I now have a gig bag for it, and can ship it out in a guitar cardboard box from a local music store. New price is reflective of the brand-new bag I picked up in-between the original post, and the first post bump. Shipping not included in price.

    This thing looks awesome. You won’t find something this unique, especially for the price, every day of the week. Someone’s getting a steal here.

    I've had an inquiry already, but it would need to be shipped. Local pickups will be given preference.

    Matsumoku Goodness (if I'm not mistaken). Same factory my '81 Ibanez came from. Same woods and cream pickup covers, too. I think you're being overly honest about the condition, there's much more in good condition with that bass than bad.

    These are awesome basses. I’ve got a fretless single pickup version (TSB-350) that has a beautiful tone and is a dream to play. Somebody grab this. You won’t be disappointed.

    The very first bass I ever had was a TSB-350 (fretted). Great bass. Wish i still had it!

    This is very tempting. And I'm located in Evansville and frequently travel north, so I could pick it up. Any interest in trades/partial trades?
