    I went buying it this afternoon together with a friend of mine who's starting off on bass. I checked the neck, truss rod, electronics etc, nice bass for the price, only $175 ! The original element was replaced by an active alembic element.

    Any thoughts on wood, building year etc?

    Could it be this one? An SB1000 ? Different finish, but it seems to be same one..

    it's definitely an aria sb-1000, and $175 is a good price.
    Mine cost be over $500, although it was in mint original condition (had been sitting in a cupboard for 18 years!)
    Here's a good reference site for Aria basses:

    I wouldn't call it mint, there were some small dinks, but I played alot better then I thought it would.

    And that link is where I found that info in the first place :)
