This popped up on C-list. Anyone know much about the Aria Pro II's?

Is this worth a 60 mile round trip to check out, or are these junk??

Aria Pro II's are NOT Junk. Usually they are very well made axes. It's hard to tell from the pictures but that looks like maybe a PE series. Probably a set neck and probably worth getting more info.

I have an Aria Pro II Urchin model and it is very well made indeed. The quality is reflective of Matsumoku builds. Very nice soumd and playability. It is worth a look see for certain. :up:

Bear in mind fellas, that APII are reissuing a lot of their 80's models like the Gerry Cott, and others of the PE series, which this looks to be...

I was going to say something similar, that there are early 80's Japanese made APii's (pretty nice!), and then there are mid-late 80's Korean made APii's (just so-so). My two cents.

Talked with seller last night, the guitar is about 8 years old, so I'm gonna pass. I'm guessing made in Korea.
