Hello, I have a 1982 Aria Pro II SB-R80 in Tobacco Sunburst finish for sale. This is a nice Matsumoku MIJ bass that has just been setup with 40-100 stainless steel Rotos.
It has a couple of problems, though. First, it appears the neck pickup is bad since the G string volume is significantly weaker. The tech that set it up replaced the parallel / series switch and it is only wired with one coil functioning according to the tech. The bridge pickup works fine though.
I originally wanted to replace the neck pickup but it's apparently glued in to the cavity! The bridge pickup is also glued in. I supposed you'd have to destroy the pickups to get them out then! Rather than do that I just leave it be. Unfortunately you can't adjust pickup height either since I was going to see if that affected the output on the G string.
I have a thin pleather bag to go with it. I'm asking $450 shipped CONUS. Thanks!
