Aria Bari

A ton of fun.

Made from a recyled AriaProII "Thor Sound" 22 fret bass neck and a Telecaster body. The neck was originally for a 4 string bass, but they conveniently left space for the two additional tuners. Fitting a new nut, two generic 6 string bass pickups, and a GFS roller bridge made this into a very usable instrument. It is a mid-scale neck tuned A to A and yes, you can play chords on it. I used Balanced Tension Circle K Strings to get the right intonation.  Standard Telecaster switching, with independent volume and master tone controls, completes this package.
