Made a couple sweet scores this weekend. First off we have a pretty beat, but completely playable Aria Pro II Ts500. This guitar is kind of an odd ball. It belonged to a friend of mine and I've had an eye on it forever. He finally decided to sell it and I couldn't buy it from him quick enough. It's missing the coil tap switch which is fine by me since I'd never use it. The serial # dates it to 1980 and it has a sticker that indicates it's a ts500, as well as having a set neck, but it looks like alot of other ts500's had more complex control layouts, like the other high end models in the series. Either way this thing plays like a dream and the brass nut adds a nice tonal quality to open chugz. It has a little bit of free buzz, but that should be easily remedied with a set up. I'm really excited about this one. It's an Honer "the jack" headless 6 string, officially licensed by Steinberger. This. Guitar. Slays. End of story. Walked into guitar center today and saw this sitting there for $300. I haven't really bonded with the roadstar II I bought a few months ago, so I drove straight home to grab it and traded it in for this. Its super light weight and plays like an absolute dream. Not sure what the story on the pickups is ("select by emg"?) But the sound is amazing. The bridge pickup is relatively high output and pretty compressed sounding, but I honestly like it for playing grindy stuff. Each pickup having it's own on/off switch is super handy and offers alot of tonal variations. Unfortunately it uses the old double ball end steings, but I'm planning on getting one of the single ball adapters from Headless USA unless anyone knows of a better option.
