    Hi everyone! Who here owns a current or vintage Aria Pro ii guitar? If you own a Japanese one you know just how good they are! Here is mine in action:

    Very cool. I've got a definite love affair with Japanese made guitars

    Their original designs are a bit different than anything else out there. I have always been a fan of the MIJ guitars!

    Had an Aria pro II ts-400 (possibly? Not sure because it had a mix of 500 & 400 specs but was labeled as a 400 from the factory). Either way it was definitely a 10/10 guitar. Only sold it to my friend since he really liked it and it wasn't getting any love from me once I got my t-60.

    I wish Aria still made the TS (Thor Sound) series. To me those always were Aria’s answer to the Ibanez studio guitars.

    I remember when Yngwie Endorsed them and they made him a V with 2 single coils.

    They make really amazing guitars. By far one of the highest quality guitars I own!

    I remember these guitars! Did you know Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi also played Aria!? They had a pretty big artist roster in the early and mid 80s.

    I have an Urchin - 3rd one I've owned, as I've always loved the weird shape. Solid player too

    Those guitars are somewhat rare and hard to find nowadays. I wish Aria would reissue the Urchin again.

    I have one from 86' IIRC. the one thing that I l love about that is the flame on the neck and fretboard. The body is being refinished by a buddy. I have not played it for probably 6 months. Decent guitar for $150 on the used market.
