Original quality, select woods, great sustain. Maple neck with maple fretboard - fantastic maple burl. 22 regular frets, hand finished edges. Moderate curvature, butter smooth neck. Aria Protomatic single coil pickups.
Finish: Natural ("N") aka Blonde on Blonde. The guitar is in excellent condition, it plays and sounds great. The finish is well preserved and shiny, with a few dings and scratches (mostly on the sides) that add character and do not detract from presentation or sound.
The neck is straight, the frets have practically no wear. The figured maple on the neck is beautiful, and plays the part.The chrome hardware works fine. The classic tremolo accepts a threaded arm, which is included.
All in all, a great addition to your guitar rack or your collection. It is hard to believe this instrument is over 40 years old. I verify my guitars against available Aria catalogs and corroborated information from collectors.
