I am an old man and I do not speak English. I'm moving in the writings of Google Translate. I'm not a guitar expert, I own this guitar. Local guitar expert has assessed the guitar and told the guitar model and that it is a limited edition, and that they are made from a thousand pieces. I have not found even a photo of identical and I would be grateful if someone could tell me more about this guitar.

Nice guitar. The tuners are a little unusual but otherwise this is a typical Aria Stratocaster copy from the early- to mid-seventies.

There is actually a picture of this model in a 1975 Aria catalog, unfortunately the website hosting it requires you to login (http://www.vintaxe.com/catalogs_pages/c ... p_1975.php).

A good site, thanks to the link below
I paid $ 10 and I looked at the brochure, but I could not find the same kind. ST600BL look a bit the same but the chanting of iron control is different and it is Aria Pro 2. I have only Aria.
1971 list was Telecaster which was similar Rectangular hole to adjust the necklace of iron. In more recent it is smaller and circular. A1723TD is a necklace of iron adjustment at the top. I still have not found a similar or even a picture.

While this is probably as purchased in 1975 is older and may be up to 1971 model, whether such early A1723DL when all specs of the model is the same except for the neck produce iron control. The neck of iron control is the same as the 1971 Telecaster models.

Don't worry about "Aria" or "Aria Pro II". The name changed sometime mid-seventies... but the models didn't necessarily change at the same time.

I guess with "iron control" you mean the truss rod adjustment on the bottom of the neck. Indeed that feature faded out by mid-seventies... but the Tele copy photo in the 1975 catalog still has it.

One thing to learn with Japanese guitars of this time is that specifications were a moving target (and catalogs give you only a rough idea what to expect).

Some people try to tell you those guitars are "prototypes" or "limited editions", but the truth is that the manufacturers used whatever parts they could get their hands on at the time of production.

You are right. I found the same guitar in different digits. The same manufacturer and the same parts. Only a neck hole iron adjustment is different. :up:
