Topic: Need help identifying this Aria Pro II solidbody guitar
Hi, I've been a long time chordie.com user, but this is my first forum post. I bought this Aria Pro II Guitar, and I can't find any info on the web about this specific model. Found a few that have the same body shape, but much different appointments and electronics. This guitar is very ornate, 6 layer black and white binding around the neck and headstock, split block inlays, flame maple top. Has the faux pearl inlay in the headstock. The body looks like mahogany, 6 layer black and white binding around the body as well. Has a nice patina, seems like it from at least the eighties, but I'm not sure.
It has the standard Gibson LP elecronics / pickup configuration; 2 volumes, 2 tones, a three way switch, hardtail with a tunematic type bridge.
The SN is S97059155 on the back of the headstock, and also has "Made in Korea" at the bottom of the back of the headstock. I've owned (3) Gibson L5S guitars in my life, and this one is set up better than all of them. The neck is dead nuts straight, intonates perfectly.
