Sorry I can't work out how to close this thread as this guitar is now SOLD.

I have a TA100 Titan Artist for sale - Brisbane Australia.

Most of the members will know what they are - one of Aria's flagship guitars and is a premium instrument in every way.

Specs as follows:

* Solid carved maple top
* Arched sycamore back with sycamore rims
* Solid mahogany center block
* 5pc mahogany/maple neck
* Ebony fretboard with 22 frets
* Real mother-of-pearl fretboard inlays with inset abalone
* Solid brass top nut
* Solid brass truss rod cover
* Full crème body, neck, f hole and headstock binding
* Original “Classic Power” covered humbuckers
* Two vol and 2 tone controls with factory knobs etc
* Three way pickup selector switch
* Factory die-cast machine heads
* Adjustable bridge and quick hook tail piece
* Gold plated hardware
* Catalogue Antique Brown (AB) finish

Comes with hard case - not original. Condition is close to mint with some corrosion to the gold plated hardware.

It is currently listed on Gumtree in Australia for AU$1995.

Can pack for transport no probs.

Email is dmaynard000@yahoo.com.au

The Herb Ellis is not really for sale but I i might consider selling at AU$2000. I imagine shipping would be costly? are you a player or collector?

I am just an amateur player (don't do gigs or such).
I do have a dozen guitars but I woudn't call myself a collector. I do have a thing for Aria Pro ii guitars, because my first ever electric guitar is an excellent black RSX80 that I baught from my neighbour for peanuts back in mid 2000s, and I still have it, though the electronics need fixing. I am actually on a shopping spree for Arias ! :hyper:
I did find a HE yesterday, here in France in excellent condition, I'll be checkng it out this week end (for the modest price of 1250 euros! the same price you mentionned, which is great)

That sounds very cool. Yes I love the Aria's also and have a collection of 11. The PE175 is a very nice guitar and mine is in exceptional condition. I would also highly recommend a TA100 if you get a chance to buy one as it is an exceptional guitar. I still have one of those too. For your information, my brother had a TA70 with slightly lower specs but sounded almost identical so if you come across one of those don't ignore it. Good luck.
