Here we have a stunning Aria Pro II PE-R60 guitar, made in Japan in 1981 by the famous Matsumoku plant. This vintage is no exception to the reputation of Matsumoku's craftsmanship during its golden age.

Departing from the copies of the classic Les Paul models, Aria Pro II PE series adopt an innovative and original design with noticeable improvements, especially in terms of playability with the patented "heel-less joint" cutaway that significantly facilitates access to higher notes. The quality of the selected tonewoods, the design of its curves, its finish as well as its versatile sound combinations make it undoubtedly one of the best "Les Paul Killer". 

The guitar is 100% stock original, no mods, no break. There is patina on the hardware, some dents here and there (see pictures) but it is in a nice player condition. She has been set up by a professional before listing and optimally tuned for playability and intonation with new 10/46 Ernie Ball strings. Trussrod is working fine, neck is straight, action low without any buzz. The electronics have been carefully checked and lubricated, no crackling potentiometers. She is ready to play!
