Aria Pro II CS-350 Cardinal Series

Immortalised by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, The Aria Pro II CS-350 has risen to fame as a road ready grunge machine thanks to the aforementioned rockstar and his on stage guitar destroying tendencies. Made by the Matsumoku factory in the early 1980s, the CS-350 features an ash body, maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard. This guitar is all original and equipped with the MMK-45 humbuckers famous for possessing the sound of the legendary DiMarzio Super Distortion series of pickups. The incredible Ash woodgrain shows beautifully through its transparent red finish.

From the factory these guitars feature a ton of tonal options, with volume and tone for each pickup, as well as a coil split and phase switching capabilities via the mini toggles. This particular one is in reasonable condition, with an expected amount of dings and chips for its age. There is a fair amount of wear on the fingerboard in the open chord positions, however there are no structural breaks or cracks and the guitar presents in all original condition bar one tone knob. This guitar has received a professional setup and service and is playing slick with a set of 1046s.
