 A rare and gorgeous condition Aria FE - Electric Acoustic Guitar from the 80s.

'Hand Crafted From Selected Grain Wood' and Made in Japan.

I believe these were made in the Matsumoko factory for Aria, the highly revered factory for its expert workmanship.

All electronics work, hardware and cosmetics are great condition. 

 

Body:

  • Top: Solid Spruce
  • Back/Sides: Sycamore
  • Neck: Mahogany
  • Fret/board: Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge.
  • Pickup: Type-F Elecord (Vol and Tone)

The beautiful grain on this guitar, especially the arched back, has to be seen to be believed (see pics). Simply outstanding cosmetically, the photos just don't do it justice. This was a very expensive guitar at the time, it is made from solid timber (not ply like most of the cheaper models).

At almost thirty years old, it is in superb condition with only very few small dings to the finish if you can see then without looking for it...and nothing that affects it's tone or playability.

The high quality sealed tuners hold the tuning well and the fingerboard and bridge feature attractive Mother of Pearl inlays

The action is very low for an acoustic but no fret buzz. Consequently, this guitar plays really well and has a tone to put many of the larger brands to shame.

Pickup: Type-F Elecord Pickup. 
Manufacturer Installed, this active preamp battery-powered pickup and pre-amp system works very well and is built in beneath the saddle. Battery life is extended as the pu is only activated when plugged in.   The vibrations are picked up at the string, reducing handling noise and any feedback.  The mounting system allows for easy Modification or replacement. See image of PU  for what we mean.
