I play 4 fingered and cleanly. I'll admit, the pinky was tough to get to play nice. It took a solid year of practice devoted to just the right hand. The pinky is much shorter in most cases and...

Goodness, Aria must really be struggling. That price is just stupid. Jeez, the body is alder for goodness sake. It appears to be about a $300 bass to me. They can keep it.

Take it to a pro. Aside from that, I'd get it crowned and polished as well as leveled and dressed. It will be a new instrument when you are finished.
