Aria Japanese 335 in Eugene, OR for $350

I've seen a lot of ES-335 copies from Japan but other than some of the Yamaha models this one looks more beautiful than most.   I'd expect it to sound and play nice as well.  That is a set neck - Aria (and Univox) would still put the little two screw plates on the set necks because the Japanese luthiers just wanted to make sure they were secure.

*Rare!* Vintage Japanese 335-style hollowbody electric - $350 (Eugene/Springfield)

image 1image 2image 3
Up for sale: a nameless but beautiful 335 copy. The pickups are stamped underneath as Maxons, which indicates this guitar was probably made in Japan's Matsumoku factory in the late 60s or early 70s; likely from the Aria line. It features all gold hardware with Gibson-style keystone tuning machines, all original save the gold Schaller strap-locks. Rosewood fretboard with Mother-of-Pearl block inlays. The finish is a beautiful transparent cherry burst that exposes a magnificently detailed flame maple top; the maple also appears to be spalted inside as well, a very cool piece of wood. 5-piece maple neck with elaborate binding, this guitar looks and sounds amazing. Comes with a hardshell Roadrunner ABS case. Serious inquiries only please.
