    My knowledge is a little hazy - is this one of 'the' Arias that were handmade or one of the cheapie mass-production ones????

    Still five days to go, plenty of time for the price to go up. It's only a steal if you can bid such a cheap price 10 seconds before the auction close (my preferred technique - nervewracking but fun!)

    i dunno but there pretty rare as hell and i suspect that most ppl that shop ebay wont know what it is lest if its any good plus it looks killer doubt if another one would pop up anytime in the next decade or so lol :p

    That looks like a late 70's early 80's Aria SB1000 and at the price its a steal, someone is gonna be VERY happy

    that is an early 80's SB1000. they usually go for $1000-1200 on US eBay. If the electronics haven't fried (which was a problem with the early SB1000's) then that is a steal.

    Yup that was my first bass, it was great, superbly built and a pleasure to play. Great range of tones even though it was only a single p/up. I still kick myself for ever selling it...

    Don't forget the cost of shipping.

    The seller says "Sydney Metro pickup only" but if one of you overseas fellas really wants it and is happy to cover the costs, I can help out.
     
  12. My boss got one of those for free - minus the pickup.

    He refinished it and whacked in an EMG designed for a 6 string, fitted perfectly in the hole.

    It's a great bass, love the heel, feels so comfy.
