FS/FT Aria SB-700 1981 (Passive SB-1000) *REDUCED AGAIN*


Recommended Posts


Can post at buyer's expense


This Aria is from 1981 and sounds fantastic. It has Rotosound 90-35 strings (just like cliff burton did) that are quite dead.


The coil tap switch has been replaced because the old one was broken. All of the electronics work perfectly and sound amazing.


There have been two holes filled near the controls (seen in pictures) but it doesn't affect anything and is not noticeable unless you're up close. There is also quite a deep dent near the bottom of the bass but, again, it is barely noticeable unless you're up close. There are also minor scratches around the bass that are a given for a 40 year old bass.


It plays amazingly with great and low action. The g string has been raised a tiny bit as it was buzzing but i think this is just because of the change in gauge strings. 


Collection from Wokingham or i can travel out a bit, show me your offers or trades.

Good afternoon what is the weigh please,? thanks 

It's a heavy one. 4.4kg on my bathroom scale. Almost all of the weight is in the body so it feels quite a bit heavier than thag

I am a little tempted, any idea why the two holes were made in her?

I am not sure why they are there, it was done by the owner before me i assume and i got the bass like that. it doesn't affect anything at all
