Aria Pro II ZZ Deluxe 1980s Explorer-type Matsumoku-made guitar
I readily admit that I have a soft spot for 1980s Japanese-made Aria Pro II guitars - even pointy ones like this Aria Pro II ZZ Deluxe. Although quite obviously based on Gibson's Explorer the designers have made this version their own with a slimmer more contoured body shape. The quality of Aria guitars from this period is down to their origination in Japan's famed Matsumoku factory. This particular guitar is a rare left-handed example and features the addition of an aftermarket Kahler tremolo. If you're left-handed and the design of this guitar appeals (which probably means that your band plays metal) then you could do a lot worse than give this guitar a whirl.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of US $599.99.
