Greetings, I would love to have as many informations as possible on my Aria Pro II. It is the same exact model and color of my first guitar ever, bought in 1995 when I was 15. I found this identical guitar on an auction in England and I bought it some weeks ago. As far as I know it is a Viper VP-60 but I'm not 100% sure.


On the base of the neck, right above the metal plate, there used to be a sticker who read "Made in Japan". Sadly it disappeared after I left the guitar at my luthier for a setup :(

I'd really to know anything about this guitar. Where it was produced? What wood is the body? What pickups are those? In-house made by Aria o DiMarzios (they look like DiMarzios)? Was the guitar made in 1991? From the serial number I could guess so, even though for some reason I always thought this series was from 1994/1995.

Thanks a lot for any info! I literally love this guitar, it's my favorite... and I have some MIA Fenders, Les Pauls, etc.

in this picture you could still see the "Made in Japan@ sticker on the base of the neck.

Its very nice but its post Matsumoku. Someone may have some info on it but we don't really keep up with anything after 1987.
