Hollow Body Help -> What's this??

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by soulbrother, May 26, 2002.

  1. In my search of a hollow body bass, someone offered me this '62 Aria bass (reissue?). Who of you knows anything about this fellow? Value? Collectable?

    Thanks, Werner.

    Sorry for having no real information, but I've never seen one of those before. As for aria's quality, it can be really good. I think by looking at that one that if it plays well and has a useable sound It'd be worthwhile.

    Early import basses are a bad idea, unless it's a ridiculously good deal and it won't be your main bass.

    Major import brands start getting decent around the mid to late 70s.

    can't say much about this bass.. but I played a gretsch hollow body awhile back... it sounded pretty good too :)
