1980 Aria Pro II Japan (Matsumoku) TSB-550 Tri-Sound Neckthrough Bass (Red)
Neckthrough Aria basses are inarguably some of the best Japanese instruments ever made. Manufactured by the Matsumoku factory in 1980, this TSB-550 is an outstanding example of what the TSB series was all about.
An aged red finish on the ash body with maple/walnut transmit neck and a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, it weighs just under 4kg's. Loaded with the original MB dual coil pickup controlled by a master volume/tone and a dual-sound switch.
This one is in very good cosmetic condition with barely any signs of wear. All original, restrung prior to listing along with a fret polish and fretboard oil, truss is functional and the neck is straight.
