    Anybody ever played some of these?
    Are they any good?
  2. One of my first basses was an Aria Pro II. It was 4 string fretted with a single humbucker in the P position and a black finish. It was really good. Aria was one of the first Japanese 'high end' instruments in it's time, together with Ibanez. I have no idea how good they are currently, though.

    Although I think you would get a lot more feedback if you post this in the general basses forum.

    Thanks Wilser, but I was talking of Aries basses (not Aria!). If I'm right, they are made by a luthier in Croatia, Europe.
    So anybody heared of Aries?
    Can anybody compare Aries to other luthier's basses?
    And Thanks Wilser anyway
  4. OOPS!
    I guess it's time to change my glasses!

    They look great to me, And I know Bass Alone sold 2 of them and they for the most part only deal with the cream of the crop other than a few cheapies I think they toss in to get some traffic. I like the reconnected horn style (like the Ken Lawrence Brase design), but not the other one with the funky shaped upper horn, but thats just me.
