1960's Aria 1362G
Very first generation of Aria
Unfortunately not much info found on the web as well as Tokyo offline market, I dialed Aria HQ in Nagoya but in vain, being only told the guitar must be late 1960's during the era of Matsumoku production. If you are a seasoned luthier enough to identify the timbers used for this guitar, I appreciate your shedding light.
Condition of this guitar is superb, all parts original except the string and GigBag's leather softcase. She plays and sounds full, lush and rich. A reasonable alternative for ES-175, should I say?
