    Default Dating Aria Pro II lawsuit guitars?

    Anyone know how to date 'em? This looks absolutely gorgeous, but I have no clue when it was made and solid info seems very hard to come by...

    Wish I did know. It looks absolutely mint from what I can see. If I was in the UK at the moment, I'd be tempted to go and take a look at it myself. I remember having an Aria catalogue somewhere around the mid-late 70's and I'm sure these were listed in it. They used to do a really nice tobaco sunburst IIRC that I'd have had in a heartbeat.

    You could do worse than this site, without a model or serial number though, you could be a while. The Guitars of Matsumoku

    I spent a long time on it earlier - think it's a 1977 LC 550VS; not one of the higher price models, but still looks really good.

    The same Ebay seller is also selling two Aria bursts, one of which has DiMarzios, which suggests it's a higher grade model from what I've read on that site...they don'thave the vibe of this 550 though; the colour is incredible...I am sorely tempted, but £500 is a lot for an Aria...
