It's bottom feeder territory. Made from plywood, and crap pieces. I believe it was made in Korea after 87. Unless it's dirt cheap, avoid.

If this guy says they should be avoided I would take his advice .

Hey guys,

I found an aria pro 2 fs from the 80's on facebook for 50euros , do you think it is worth ? 

Idk at all about the quality of these guitars but for 50 bucks...

What do you think ?

ok, what model? Arias ran the gamut from pure crap, to brilliance. It all depends on the model and the year.

Made me wonder just how good these things are? Are we talking epiphone quality or higher? Also what's the difference between Aria, Aria Pro II etc.? Never got that.

I really like the Aria Pro II guitars.  Here is a video of me playing my PE-LUX guitar.  This is not a Matsumoku made guitar rather this is a recent Japanese made model.

I can speak about guitars from the 80's.   I have a 1985 RS Knight Warrior; bought it used in '87 for $125.    Two years later I bought a Fender Strat, and put the Aria away...until last year.  I began playing it again because the neck agrees with my hand (pain from middle age, lol).   I never thought it was on par with my Fender, however, the neck is top notch! And just a tad narrower than Fender.  At 35 years old, everything still works!  It stayed in tune sitting in the case for years.  I feel the pickups are, well, subdued.  Not good or bad necessarily, just...subdued (compared to others).   But I recently recorded a couple songs with it, and I think the sound quality is just fine.  I have a link below if you want to hear what it sounds like.  I played all the guitar parts (and Bass) with the Aria, through a Peavey Vypyr amp.  I would buy another.

Hope this helps.
