Thread Name: Aria Guitar
Subject: RE: Aria Guitar
I had never heard of an Aria before. I was in a local guitar shop and the owner asked me to play a guitar they had had in the basement for years, they were not sure why it was down there and wanted me to see if I could find anything wrong with it. I saw it hanging up when I came in the shop but did not play it, im not usually attracted to fancy guitars. It was Rosewood side and back and spruce top. Lots of fansification on the neck and sound hole. It sounded great! lots of sweet sound. I like to finger pick and dropped the low E to D and played some MJH tunes. I thought "this sounds great". I looked at the tag and he was asking $75 and that came with the original hard shell case. I bought it and I have not played my Taylor since I brought it home. It is a wj-300 model #7608869.
I would say it is worth at least $500 but I would not sell it. My goal is to earn $75 with it and have it pay for itself. So far I am up to $30.
