1981 Aria Pro II Mockingbird Copy MK1600!
Here is a super clean 1981 Aria Pro II MK-1600N. This was near the top of the Aria Pro II line. This guitar is a beautiful example of what Japanese guitar makers could achieve back in this era. It is so exact to the BC Rich Mockingbird's of the time. To be clear, these were not cheap guitars back in the day and the quality is on-par with the BC Rich made in USA models. The guitar plays and sounds excellent. The necks are actually a bit thicker than the original BC Rich Mockingbirds which came as a nice surprise. The guitar is ready to be enjoyed!
It features a maple neck through construction with maple body wings separated by strips of walnut. The rosewood fretboard is highlighted with very nice cloud inlays. The headstock overlay inlaid with the Aria Pro II "P" logo. The tuners are real-deal Grover USA Imperials.
The pickups are a pair of very early DiMarzio Dual Sounds, which are coil splittable Super Distortions, and absolute perfect fit for this guitar. The electronics include a single master volume and master tone, 3 way pickup selector, an active boost mini switch (powered by a 9v battery in the control cavity) with a level control knob, a "varitone" type chicken head knob with 6 different positions and 2 mini switches that split the coils. All the switches and knobs work as they are supposed to.
The guitar comes complete with original hardshell case. The guitar is very clean and all original (except maybe the knobs). Other than a few small scrapes and light dings this guitar is close to collector-grade. Nice and lightweight too. Here is your chance to get a great example of a Mockingbird Supreme without the huge price tag.
