Aria Pro II's

I don't know why, but I really dig them. The Pro II series is really diverse, and Aria's are really comfy IMHO. Post some pics up of them here! I'll post mine as soon as I can.

Additionally, does anyone know where I could get replacement locking-nut blocks to fit mine? All of the blocks I've tried so far are too big. I might end up replacing the whole system.

Re: Aria Pro II's

The first electric I ever had was an Aria CTCT3k I believe. It was *amazing*.

I spent literally years trawling old, borrowed Guitarist magazines, and finally saved up £300 (about $600) and went round the music shops, trying Washburns and Squiers, and eventually found the very guitar I'd picked from the mags, in a blue-burst.

It had HSS, 3 dip switches, vol & push-pull tone, and a Kahler Spyder. I actually still have all the bits, eventually I stripped the thread out of the inside of the tremarm mount, and after 7 years retired it for a Patrick Eggle.

I was going to chrome it and rebuild it but it never happened. If you want the nut, let me know the measurements, I can't promise it'll be fast, but it will be free to you if it fits.

Re: Aria Pro II's

I have an Aria ProII cardinal series....had for 25 years or so. I butchered mine way back and put a khaler on it. Still plays good. I'll see if I can find some pics of it.

Re: Aria Pro II's

well, keep in mind that lynch and petrucci both played aria's at one point in their lives.

Re: Aria Pro II's

I just got an 85 RS Knight Warrior with a Kahler. I oiled up the parts and it actually stays in tune very well. I had to replace the screws for the locking nut (behind the actual nut), idiot lost the screws and filled it in with caulking to keep the blocks from rattling, durrrr!

Feels a lot different than a floyd, but is really great for palm muting. Stock pickups are pretty much crap, but it has to be the fastest neck I've ever played, in a completely different style than a Wizard. I'm gonna put a Screamin Demon in it and see what happens. For some fun I pulled out all the electronics and put in a JB wired straight to the output jack and covered the holes with stickers for the time being. Going to order a new pickguard to only have single coil bridge, hum neck and one volume. Also, the finish is like a car or something, near insdestructable.

Well worth the $125 I paid on craigslist. If you find one I say pick it up, it is very well constructed and very comfortable. It's definately a shred machine, just on the complete opposite end of the scale from my 550. Also, the upper fret access is really great.
