ARIA PRO II
1979/1980 - Model: TS-600 (Thor Sound)

This is a vintage Aria Pro II: TS-600 (Thor Sound) guitar from late 1979 or early 1980. For all you deadheads that don't want to spend a ton of money on an Alembic this is a serious close second. Jerry Garcia would have loved this guitar. It's got a neck-through-style with beautiful mother-of-pearl inlays and a just an incredible set of woods used throughout. This is an excellent quality Japanese made guitar from the infamous Matsumoko Factory.

The tonal range is amazing: from clean to total distortion with a flick of a switch. The neck is straight and all the electronics work properly. It's almost all original except the truss-rod cover is missing and the tone selector switch has been replaced (although you'd never know it wasn't original). It does have the usual wear for a 25 year old guitar but the nicks just add to it's vintage character.
