    This is a beautiful 1976 Aria Pro Jazz Bass made in Matsumoku, Japan.
    All original parts, and in a great condition aesthetically and structurally.
    The neck is straight and features maple fretboard with binding and block inlays that aged nicely.
    Action is low with no buzz and the frets have plenty of life left in them.
    The tuning keys are surprisingly very stable and unlike many Japanese copies I've played, they're just as good as the rest of this bass.
    This bass sounds and feels incredible with a very healthy output and tons of growl and will be a perfect fit for you if you're looking for the sound and feel of 70's Fender Jazz without the price tag.

    My preference is cash but I'm willing to entertain trade offer for hollowbody basses or other MIJ goodies.

    Weight? Fretboard radius? Is this a maple cap neck (no stripe)?

    It's right around 9 pounds, maple cap (no skunk stripe).

    The fretboard radius is much higher (flatter) than a vintage fender of the same era. Right now I can't give you an exact number but comparing it to my more modern basses (Sadowsky and Roscoe) it's right there between 12 and 16. Crazy, right?
