Aria Vintage Archtop PE 190  was a Robert Conti model back in 79'  Made in Japan.

Great playing guitar - used on many gigs playing before many known bands. In this video we were playing before Jimmy Herring and Band and John McLaughlin and Band -  Nov 2017. 

Big guitar - like a Super 400. Very thick top - so much less prone to feedback - which I liked. Love the Japanese guitars of that period - Ibanez, Aria, Greco,  have owned ar least a dozen or more. Still have my Ibanez 2460 (L5 copy)- but mostly play a Heritage 335 these days.

Very heavy binding deterioration in a number of areas. I never bothered repairing as it didn't affect playability. But at some point you might want to.  Previous owner had sanded off finish upper back of neck - apparently did that with all his guitars get a better feel on the neck I guess. Never noticed anything about it - cause my hand doesn't go there - it's just missing finish. Comes with hardshell case.
