    I found an "The Cat Aria II Pro" bass in the trash and it is totally stripped. It has no pickups electronics no knobs no nothing just a body and a neck. I am wondering if it is worth to fix it up, and if so what stuff should i buy for it.

    One of my first basses was an aria igb 40, pretty much one of hte lowere aria models they make. This bass amazes me. Great for most types of music. I love this thing..
     
  3. neck through or bolt on? Make sure it's gonna play alright first. Slap some old strings on it (if it has hardware!) and try it out.

    My boss just jammed and EMG in an Aria Pro II he got for free off a mate, sounds great, plays nice, better than anything else for the same money.

    its a bold on neck, and it does not have a bridge. but since it is bolt on doesnt it not matter as much to test it
