  • My new bass (pics)

    I bought an Aria Tab 66 bass this past week after wanting one for quite a while. I have had a Jack Casady bass for 6 years and like that one a lot, but this bass blows it away. It has a center block and is very solid. I have not found a flaw on it anywhere.. The strings are D'Addario Tapewounds .105 to .50. It's like they were made for this bass. I have played bass for 43 years and this is the first bass I bought that had the intonation correct right out of the box. All I did was lower the bridge a few turns. The sides, back and even the sides of the headstock have the brown sunburst. The wood grain is gorgeous. After playing this Aria, I might go ahead and list my Jack bass on Craigslist, I like the Aria that much! It's 1/4" thinner than the Jack bass, but the body is the same size otherwise and the second pic shows the Aria in the Jack Casady case.

      Very nice. I've only played one hollowbody bass, an old National, but I'd love to get my hands on that Aria.
