Hi - found a kinda unique Aria. It's a double cut ES-335 style semi-acoustic with an ovation style black ABS back. Note base of neck style too. Neck appears to be rosewood with diamond inlays. Can't seem to find anything similar so thought i'd see if someone here can ID. No label / numbers inside sound holes or on neck. Think it's roughly 1980 or slightly earlier given the ovation style back, and Artec ASE4 Pre-Amp electronics.

I'm glad you were finally able to activate your account.

It should have a serial number on the back of the headstock. You might have to use a flashlight at an angle if the finish is dark and the serial is just printed and not embossed.
