1980 Aria Pro II Japan (Matsumoku) TS-500 Vintage Guitar (Brown Sunburst)
Made by the Matsumoku factory in Japan in 1980, the TS-500 Thor Sound was a mid range offering from their catalog and has the original curly headstock. Designed to meet the "stringent requirements of today's guitarists", the TS-500 have a three-ply maple neck with a 24 fret rosewood fingerboard, set to a sycamore body with a maple centre block and walnut stripes. Loaded with passive Protomatic III humbuckers, switchable active boost circuit, 6-way tone selector and a range of other tone shaping controls (coil cuts, phase etc). Weighs 3.9kg's.
Received a full professional setup and service prior to listing. Frets have some light pitting but are polished and smooth, some have a light buzzing and could use a crown but nothing major and plays well as is. Has a few cosmetic dings here and there as pictured and some paint cracking on the neck.
