Fell in love with the sound, but discovered I am much more a fiddler than a picker! This 1970ís Aria II needs to be played. I purchased from reputable music store in PA who gave it a good set up (I have receipt). It comes with a beautiful new case and possibly some banjo music! Scratches on the back are minimal, clearly shown on pics. Action is fun, instrument is easy to play. I prefer to find a local buyer because it is heavy, but if you are willing to pay for shipping Iíll send it to you. Iíll drive part way to hand off if you live in NJ, near NY city, or possibly in the Philadelphia area.
