I didn't know these existed! looks like a nice through neck bass that will be very well made if it's come out of the Overwater factory.
I don't need this but the want is strong (even though i don't generally like Active basses and i'm playing short scale a lot of the time now)
I have asked about the string spacing and the weight, i'm just hoping they come back and say it's a boat anchor with super narrow spacing so i can pass by.

Aria Pro II SB1000 for sale. 1983, oak finish and in nice condition.
When I bought this bass a few years ago it’s preamp and wiring loom had been stripped out. I bought a replacement preamp from Carl Maltby, and a Rautia replica pickup. (The bass has its original pickup but has never been tested. As I was about to spend a load restoring the bass I just didn’t want to take a chance on it). The preamp, Rautia pickup and new wiring was installed by Feline Guitars (Croydon) with guidance from Carl Maltby. Feline Guitars also polished and levelled the frets - and it all turned out very well.
Everything else on the bass is original and as you’d expect. The original pickup will be included in the sale. It comes in a Warwick Rockbass gigbag. Collection preferred. Selling as I need to cull the herd and I can’t find playing opportunities for two SBs!
Really nice playing instrument at this price. Pickups upgraded from stock (not sure on brand). Scratchplate and screws included, I just preferred it like this.
No trades. Delivery within reason for petrol money.
Just having a clear out of old stuff! I saved these from the tip many years ago with the idea of repairing them/making some nice decor items but naturally never got round to it.
I just need them collected - I'll even pay with a cup of tea / beverage of your choice!
They all need work but they have the potential to be decent guitars or at least fun to practice guitar 'improvements' on.
First up is a BM Jumbo 155 (which I think is by Yasuma / Japanese?). It's a Martin D28 clone apparently. It could do with some love and a setup but everything's there for a decent acoustic!
There's also an Aria XL-DLX Excel Series (guessing either Japanese or Korean?) which needs some more work! It's got a space for a Floyd bridge and needs new tuners etc but it could be a solid rocker.
And finally there's a BM Clasico made in Spain. It's pretty rough and needs some new strings - but it comes with it's own fancy case.
Thanks for looking! Have some mobile phone photos!
