  •  SOLD  1981 Aria Pro II SH-800
    Matsumoku + Hayashi collcaboration
Exotic design and sound. Attributed by the collaboration of the legendary guitar manufacturer Matsumoku + top luthier Nobuaki Hayashi.
Here citing from Wikipedia - Design engineer Nobuaki Hayashi became part of Matsumoku's engineering team in the mid-1970s. Hayashi's pseudonym, 'H. Noble', appeared on the rear headstock of tthis guitar. Aria's guitars, that followed showed remarkable design innovation and a definitive move away from Gibson and Fender forms...

So this guitar features semi hollow + semi solid. F holes are carved from chamber-structured top and back. Soundwise, acoustic mellow sounds + Sharp solid tone. Different from SH-1000 which features active circuit, SH-800 has passive circuit, resulting in midrange boost and punchier sound.

This beautiful piece is in great quality, well maintanined for over years. Hardcase comes along to you!
