Aria STG Series

Post by Micro on Mon May 14, 2012 1:45 pm

Hi Fellas

Can someone on here tell me anything about this guitar? It is a Aria STG in candy red.
Well, hope it is ok as I have bought it along with a Marshall amp - Ritter gig bag with tags attached & lead. All for the princely sum of 51.99. Now was I robbed or did perform a highway robbery?
Here is a picture, which I did not take. Not picked it up yet but will do shortly.

Can't say if you're a victim of robbery or not but from my understanding I believe this series was/is Korean, not Mats made (and not Westone either Rolling Eyes )

These are approximately in the Fender Squier class as far as fit/finish/playability, etc. Both good and bad.
I'm not a big devotee of Strats but I understand that if you're keen on the Aria brand you should look for the Fullerton models (George Fullerton of G&L fame). These do have an excellent rep.

You weren't robbed but you did not get a steal. The Aria Strat is the staple offering of Cash Converters and Cash Generators at around the 40 to 70 mark. The fact that you got the amp and other goodies, fine.

It is on a par with the Westone Mocking Bird you found last week.

Hope I have not dashed your hopes on the rocks of despair!!

Owch! I did the Squier's a dis-service.
