This was REAL quality in a H S S 'SuperStrat'  type guitar. Aria was one of the few best made electrics from overseas. And this one can do it all!

A long while back an England seller had one just like this one, so here was his description, but mine is in very nice condition.... very faint and light marks only and no detectable fret wear at all. And No trem bar... (TRS-1 is on the tremolo unit).  The gold rectangle sticker on the neck rear side probably said 'Korea', but it cannot be read now. But it does match the 6-8 I have seen over the years. Scarf joint at the neck heel is stronger than wood, but is not shown in the photos... Pearloid dots on the fretboard and top edge as well.... not fake ones.
"This has to, genuinely, be one of the most tonally versatile guitars I have ever come across. It is also the only guitar I've ever had where ALL of the pickups (or none of them) can be active at the same time. There are 3 switches below the bridge, and each corresponds to a pickup. Up is off, down is on. Simple as that! But wait. There's also a split coil humbucker at the bridge. The combinations of tone are mind-boggling. If only one pickup is used, then the switch effectively becomes a 'killswitch' Remarkable. But that's not everything. This beast has a Kahler 'floating' bridge. I researched them, and they're nearly £200 new! This one has some tarnishing, but I dismantled it (out of pure curiosity really, having never seen one before) and cleaned and oiled it. I have to say it is a piece of design genius. Such a stable bridge compared to a Floyd Rose. It allows for a really controlled dive, while the locking nut keeps it perfectly in tune. It can also be locked off with the use of an Allen key. I'm gushing I know, but it really is a superb piece of kit. Lovely slim, smooth neck.
There is the tiniest bit of fret-wear, but nothing really. All in all this is a fantastic instrument, that would have been considered just below 'high-end' in its day, and has not lost its quality with age. "
