Aria SB/CB MIK? or SB1000CB MIJ?


Recommended Posts

Can any Aria SB aficionados tell me how to differentiate between Aria SB Japanese and Korean made Cliiff Burton tribute models.

These were prior to the official Cliff Burton signature Black  'n' Gold models. 

Apart from the bridges which can presumably easily be changed I can't discern much visual difference.

I owned a Korean CB/SB which I regretfully traded a couple of years back. It had snake eye inlays, I have seen an early Japanese model with dot inlays

Do later (circa 2007) Japanese models have snake eye inlays?

Aria seem to be of little help with serial numbers.

Any pearls of wisdom would be appreciated.

You could try the Aria Pro II SB Basses group on Facebook too.  You'll find them a wealth of knowledge on all things SB-related.

Seconded. I'm a member of that and there's a lot of fake black n golds about, the Facebook guys can help you sort the real from the rubbish.
