ARIA Soprano Ukulele (c.1975). This uke is a fairly early example from this Japanese company, who loosely based their ukes upon the design of vintage ‘Martin’ ukuleles. The Japanese made Aria ukes quickly developed a reputation for excellent build quality and a good sound, and even in terms of appearance their modern equivalents (made elsewhere) are vastly inferior. This example has no cracks or splits but has one patch of varnish wear on the back of the body (where it has been lovingly played). It is made of mahogany and has a rosewood fingerboard, with seventeen frets and a superbly profiled neck.  It has a straight neck and no wear to the frets, with only a tiny piece of varnish wear between two of the strings at the first playing position. Four original tuning pegs and ‘Aria’ logo at the top of the peghead. Fingerboard inlaid with multiple position dots. Original maker’s label inside body. Soundhole with b/br/b/br/b inlaid surround. Top of body has b/br/b/br inlay with a black ivoroid surround. Bottom of body has just the black ivoroid surround. Original bridge in excellent condition with excellent string slots. It comes complete in a rare vintage ‘Martin’ Tenor Ukulele case with green lining and an internal pocket. £225.
