A short while back I was looking for an HSS guitar and came across an Aria MAC. The stock pickups were MEH so they went away. I put an OBL in the bridge and Wilkinson Hot Single Coils in the middle and neck position. The action is right down on the fingerboard and it has a very flat radius. 15" IIRC. I just finished putting a tremolo stabilizer in it and now it is complete. I have a push pull that puts the middle pickup out of phase and it has a coil cut from the factory. The seller made it clear the middle pickup was not working. No worries as I had pretty much planned to replace them. Turns out is was a typical Feign-Dork flaw. The start and finish winds had broken off of the solder points. I couldn't care less, it went in the recycle bin. I had an extra 5.5mm trem arm and it fit perfectly.

Here's the original listing:
