Wow! When it rains... , etc.

Ya know, ya look through the ads time after time, and find nuthin'.
Zip.
Nada.
Bugger all.

Then one day ya hits th' jackpot!!! How about this selection then:

circa 1980 Vantage VT-40B
Nice little bass with a few battle scars on the back but in overall nice condition
Price might be a tad on the high side though.
CAD$390 no case

1983 Aria Pro II RA Inzuma-V

A single pup rock n roll machine. It's black, but it has a red lightning bolt!
Perfect platform for for modding or pup testing too.
CAD$290 with stand, but no case
https://www.kijiji.ca/v-guitar/city-of-toronto/electric-guitar/1469152801

1984 Aria Pro II Urchin U-60T
Probably the most radial body design from Uncle Mats.
You don't see these come up very often so you're wise to grab 'em when you see 'em.
They look bizarre, but play like a dream.
CAD$400 no case, which can be a problem storing and transporting.

1980 Aria Pro II PE-1500

If the Urchin was bizarre, this is a masterpiece!
Certainly one of the finest examples of Uncle Mats' craftsmanship.
I've never seen one locally advertised before.
If I was rich man. . .*sigh*
CAD$3,000! w/ original case. The price might be a show stopper but jeez she's purty.

YEOWZA! The asking price for the PE HURTS!
