I have a short scale semi-hollow made by them. It's okay nothing special, the electronics are going out but I bought it 2nd hand
unless it`s made in the 80s i wouldn`t bother with the aria, the company barely has a pulse now days, in the 80s however they produced some mega guitars.

your links don`t work btw.
