This Aria Pro II weighs 7lbs 14oz and balances well on a strap, professionally setup here at Mike and Mikes Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation. The seven-piece maple/mahogany neck has a rounded yet slender C shape with good shoulder, measuring. 798 deep at the first fret, tapering notably to. The thick slab rosewood fretboard features dot inlay and stock fretwire. The frets have well-rounded crowns and their full factory height, with faint wear exclusively under the plains strings on frets 1-7 and virtually no further wear up the fretboard.
The scale length measures 25 1/2, and the brass nut is a full 1 11/16 in width, adding top end articulation and snap to the instrument's tonal profile. The gloss black headstock face has the original Aria Pro II logo, Limited Edition TS-400 truss rod cover, and stock set of Aria Pro II tuners that turn smoothly and hold pitch well. Unique to this Limited Edition Thor-Sound model, these T Tops are a Japanese-made iteration of Gibson's classic humbucker of the 1960s-70s.
All of the original hardware is intact, and the trio of metal control knobs are particularly clean, with only faint patina on the bridge. Cosmetically, the gloss Black finish exhibits light scuffing in the pick path, with a small finish blemish near the Volume knob on top.
There are a few light finish scratches on the body as a whole in the clear coat, mostly relegated to the back, with a concentration of shallow nicks at the bass side lower bout. The maple plies of the neck have faint figuring and a smooth ambered gloss finish with only a handful of light marks central to the profile that are not distracting to the palm.A vintage Japanese faux-leather gigbag is included.
