New Aria SB model: SB-1000ST

Well, hot on the heels of the SB Black 'n' Gold Cliff Burton Tribute, Aria Guitars have come out with a slightly more budget minded Super Bass. This one is called the SB-1000ST. This is a departure from the SB line in a couple very important ways. First, gone are are the MB model pickups. In their place are MusicMan style pickups. Second, the neck-through design has given way to set neck construction. However, the body and headstock have maintained the classic SB look. The chrome hardware is branded "Aria Pro II", just like the new IGB-50 Rose models.

Other specs include: alder body, three piece maple neck, rosewood fretboard with 24 frets, 34" scale, AMMB pickups, with volume, tone, and pickup balance controls.

So far, only black and white finishes are listed on the Aria website.  Check the Aria site for a few more high res pics. The initial price is 136,500 Yen but the street price will likely be lower.
