Aria Pro II RS Inazuma

Hey guys, a local store near me has one of these, its in great shape, has a great neck, everything looks stock. It has a licensed floyd called an act-3, pretty good actually, this thing about has me sold. Tell me what you guys think about these guitars and if its worth the $130 they are asking. Oh and it doesn't come with the case, but oh well its cheap so maybe it never had one. Any help is highly appreciated!
Sorry the aren't the greatest Pics-

That's a very cool looking git. I'd buy one for $130 in a heartbeat. If it isn't too good playing, it would be a great project.

I really like the upper horn. It looks fierce. For $130 it's a nice guitar, no doubt. From what I hear they are likely Japan made too. Sounds like a win win.

Do not pass GO, go directly to the store and buy it!
I should have bought a crackle version of this years ago in a pawn shop.....
A mate told me to but I wanted a new geet and couldn't be swayed. Got some mediocre at best Stinger with a crap single locking licensed Floyd.

Hell yes, buy it!

That model is nicer than the Aria Pro II that I bought from Craigslist for $120, a Knight Warrior. The finish is like a sports car (indestructable), the neck is FAAAAAST. Mine has a Kahler but I think a Floyd would be better.

There is a reason that George Lynch used to use them...

Re: Aria Pro II RS Inazuma

Well I bought it, and its an awesome guitar! From the info I found online, it looks like its a Aria Pro II Inazuma III circa 1985, which was one of the more expensive models that they made at the time. It is pretty heavy as the body is solid maple. This one was made in Japan, its top of the line, and I think that this was before they were making some of their guitars in Korea. I'll get some pictures of it up once I get my camera back from a friend, and I'll also try and post a video of how it sounds. Thanks for helping to sway me a bit guys!

Re: Aria Pro II RS Inazuma

Those arias are usually a good buy.
Ibanez is what aria could have been if they would have played their card better,
and wouldn't have gone bankrupt about 500 times.

I actually have a aria pro2 zz custom in blood paint (the explorer thingies)
Played very well and everything, had it in my stand for about 8 years,
and just replaced it with a prs se custom 24 anniversary,
payed 200 german mark back then this should have been ~100$.
I got the original case with it - they actually came with a case NOT a bag back then.
But it's very dinged up and it got a original kahler fitted by the original owner,
which made the guitar a lot worst.
So i guess 130$ is a good price.
The necks of those really feel nice, pickups are not that bad actually,
or at least for what they cost.

Have fun with your new darling.
