Another Aria Bass!!
This is an Aria RSB Deluxe, in Pearl White.
This, I think, is a more rare colour - I have only ever seen a
handful of others in this colour.
There are a lot of different sounds from this bass.
I used this last Thursday, at rehearsal and set up a sound
that just came easily to hand and during the first number, I
thought to myself, sounds very Ric!
In fact, playing around with the stack controls and selectors,
all sorts of sounds and tones can be had.
This one has been out with me before.

I also have an RSB Special, which is pretty much the same as this
but with two MB III pick-ups, this one has one MB III and one
MB-J1, tapped coil pick-up.
On this Deluxe there are stacked pots, Vol & Tone, a selector and
"Dual Sound" and Coil Tap switches.
These were very High End basses and 30 odd years ago, would have
cost a lot of money.
Aria Basses of this era, have Endurance!
They are just as relevant, as they were all those years ago.
Very well built and thought out, great to play, great sounds - what
more could you want - So many Pro Players, used them.
The decal on the headstock, details "Smooth Joint", which if you
look at it, sort of describes the way it is.
Graphite nut, smooth and accurate tuners, good solid bridge, not
heavy, nice balance. . . . . need I go on.
Aria RSB Deluxe - A Great Bass!
