    Any suggestions on how I can find out the 2nd hand value of my Ario Pro II ??? (in pounds sterling !!)

    "Aria Pro II" written on the head. AS for condition, well its been "used" I play in a blues band and for the last 12 years It's gig'd once every 4-6 weeks and its been used at practices once every 3-4 months.

    Prior to this period I'd used it on sunday morning at church.

    The body is unmarked and in good condition.

    The neck and body are made from a single pice of wood.

    The head has the following on it on the front -; "Specially Designed & Approved by Aria Research Development LAB Original Custom Body Pat No 55571"

    and on the back of the head is "3085415 Made In Japan"

    My suggestion would be to go on Google and search for similar basses being sold..same with eBay. That should give you some idea as to what the value is.
  3. Yep, just don't make your price above what you see it being offered for because possible buyers will innevitably look in the same places you did. If possible make the price lower than what is available on ebay.
