Re: Can someone please help me find/identify this guitar
The "super high end" '80's Aria Pro IIs all came out of the Japanese Matsumoku factory, and believe me, they were all kind of average at best. Most weren't good enough to be called average, honestly. Don't go insane trying to find a guitar that can't hold a candle to an RG-550 or RGA, because when you do finally find it, it won't. Those guitars simply weren't that great, and that's why people stopped buying them and they stopped getting made.
I think your memory of the guitar's playability has probably become romanticized over the years, as in "absence makes the heart grow fonder". I'll see if I can help you find one, but don't go crazy laying out the cash for one without playing it first!
