1986 Aria Pro II Japan SB-Integra Active Electric Bass Guitar (Billy Gould)
Celebrate the 2020 Faith No More Australian Tour with the bass that started it all. Used by Billy Gould on Introduce Yourself and The Real Thing, the Matsumoku built Aria Pro II SB-Integra was advertised as being "modern, contemporary and totally new, the bass of the future".
The basswood body was smaller and lighter than previous SB models, weighing only 4.4kg's. Deep insert bolt-on maple neck with a 860mm scale length and 24 fret phenolic fretboard.
The active electronics were the big development in this model. Loaded with a P/J configuration, these models feature a pickup balance knob, master volume and a pair of active EQ knobs to fine-tune the enhanced frequencies.
Good overall condition as pictured. Received a basic setup and service prior to being listed including a new battery snap. Otherwise it's all original.
