Aria SB-R150 rare bass c/w case SOLD
£700

Recommended Posts

I've had this since the 80s. It has a lovely action and hardly a blemish on it (just marks on the control cover plate).

I got frustrated with the sound and end up ripping all the electronics and pickups out. It now has proper Kent Armstrong pickups (when they were made in the UK by Kent himself, and used by the likes of Overwater and other British makers of the time), and a 9v two band active circuit again from Kent Armstrong.
It has a brass nut and bridge assembly. through neck contruction, and I believe the fretboard is ebony.

Sadly as I'm downsizing due to not playing she will have to go but will be missed.

Anything else you want to know, just ask

I was so hoping this was gonna be standard. Selling my SB II elite was an awful mistake

it sounds much better than it did with the Aria electronics. Good as it is, would probably be even better still with one of the newer breed of pre-amps

Hi Chopper. Sadly they went in the bin a good 25 years ago.
They were disappointing though. In hindsight it may have been a faulty pickup, but I'm not sorry to have put the current ones on. Might have been interesting with the original elctronics though.
