Aria of Japan proudly presents the Aria Pro II Cliff Burton Signature Bass! After a year of hard work, this bass is as accurate as can be and is officially authorized by the family and Metallica.
The Aria Pro II Cliff Burton Signature Bass is a faithful replica of his revered Black 'n Gold I bass. It features a 7-ply maple/walnut neck-through, heel-less design with an iconic headstock sporting Cliff Burton's authorised signature on back. Precise and beautiful, the 40mm brass nut and handcrafted brass gold-plated tuners are flawless. The neck has a 34-inch scale and 24 frets, highlighted by rosewood fretboard with cat eye and mother of pearl inlays.
This SB style alder body houses an Aria MB-V passive pickup. With one tone and volume control, plus a dual sound mini-toggle switch, this Signature Bass offers versatility. The solid brass bridge with gold plated saddles adds to the bass' unique look. Every order includes a deluxe ostrich hardshell case and a certificate of authenticity signed by Ray Burton. Whether you're a player or collector, this bass is a must-have.
When Ray Burton, Cliff Burton's father, saw the new Aria Pro II Signature Bass, he said "What a beautiful instrument and a great way to honor Cliff. In 1982, he bought a Rickenbacker guitar for his first year with Metallica, and he loved it. But it wasn't tough enough for touring heavy metal. So, in 1984, Cliff was introduced to an Aria Pro II bass, and he was hooked. He praised its strength and said it was just right for playing. He was devoted to his Aria basses until his death, with several of them at that time.
