Here's my old Aria sg copy. Frets are just about toasted but I love it.
Produces a very musical thuddy sound. Has a good whack of depth, but not too much.
Also pictured: Cheap and cheerful ashton head (onboard eq and compressor so I'm happy) and whacko loudspeaker I plug it into. It nukes most of the highs. You can tell it's battling with the compressor. I'll sort it out eventually.

Anyone want to tell me what year it is? I think 1980.

What's it's scale length? Tried it using a plectrum w/ palm mute?


30" probably. It's short scale.

Palm mute is a sometimes food for bass. Guitar I can manage cuz I'm not twisting or contorting the dodgy wrist.

Ab. So. Fucking. Lutely loved mine. Squier vm model. Narrow neck (across fretboard), nice and round so filled the hand nicely. Good old style radius on it.
Played it in half step and DGdg with flats - fuck me, what a sound. Cgda was a bit much for it.
For me it's the p bass sound but a far more familiar and malleable feel.
I'll have another one when I have that lotto win for sure.

Custom built bass by myself and Morris Taylor in Hamilton some years ago - this was stolen then recovered 2 years later. Has Nordstrand NJ4SV Vintage Hum-Cancelling pickups 7.25" radius to match the 1964 Jazz copy neck, Pickup blend control, Volume,Standard hi cut & Sub low cut (all passive), Body shaped as a slightly longer stratocaster (to accommodate long scale) body made with kwila - oiled only and due to the density got it down to 1 1/2" in depth - Bridge MK1 Badass with extra brass under (this gives an idea of age - bridge new at the time)
