Had to look twice and I am sober. Shocked

Fretted and a fretless, must weight a ton.

Kind of looks OK though.

That looks rather homebrew to say the least.. Laughing

On a different note i got one of them twin neck Aria ST;s. Weight isnīt as much of a killer as youīd think. A mere 6kg.
Nor is it all that cumbersome really-seing itīs a twin neck.

Compared to a Gibby SG twin it is downright both light and nimble,which just goes to show you that although it might LOOK a little unorthodox someone put some thought into the design of the ST.

That'd be the ST1512 that you've promised to me, right, Jesper?! Laughing That Thunder looks alright, though; I'm no great shakes as a bassist but I'd give it a crack, eh!!

So the circuitry is dual routed to the knobs with an a/b sort of switching between necks? Or.... :?:

John.
For the sake of the ever continuing saga then... What a Face



For the rest of you,this is an -80 vintage Aria Pro II ST. ST as in supertwin.
Had to change one of the pup pairs as they were shot,the miniswitches on the horns ainīt stock either as well as the stop bar for the 12 side.
It is cut n carved by uncle Mat as is though.
Notice the difference in inclination between the necks. More thought to that than you would imagine and the guitar doesnīt feel at all as cumbersome or large as it looks to handle.
Weight as noted comes in at a mere 6kg-seing itīs a twin neck after all. Compare that to some of the Gibbys 9kg and you get an idea.
