Hi guys! I'm Gerardo from Argentina! Thanks for adding me!
I recently bought this "beautiful" Aria Pro II Interceptor II with the idea of using it as a travel guitar, but back in the day the first guitar my father bought me was an AP2 The Cat, so, for me, it's like going back to the roots... I am a fan of Japanese guitars.
Does anyone know if this model is from Matsumoku? Or was it made by another Japanese manufacturer? Or was it not a Japanese model at all? In the catalogs it appears in those of ยด86 and I know after the Matsumoku factory closed in '87 production moved to Samick's Korean factory but the IC model is not listed on the ones they made. I haven't found any other specific information on this model on the internet.
Thanks and greetings to all!

From the way mine plays, it should be Matsumoku. Haven't played it in a while, but this used to be my travel guitar.

People who saw me with the case thought I was playing Billiard after work. :lol:
