I'm actually not sure it was even a sticker, I think it was left in a room, in the sun, with something on it for a long time. Either way, same result.

Should look like this, but with a bridge Pup and a bit more Mojo:

There’s a 75 p bass on for sale in one of the fb groups, at first glance I thought you had bought it!

So I've been playing this bass for a few weeks, and enjoying it!

How ever the V/T/V/T stacked pots are a bit clunky to use, so I have had knob near the jack changed to a blend pot, and the other is now volume/Tone. Much better!

hi man
good luck for the new year 2018.
wow this Aria bass looks really neat and you're doing a great job to restore it.
to me your Aria timber looks Ash both body and neck it would be a Fraxinus species.
In Melbourne they were common street trees on the nature strip in the suburbs.
Councils often cut them down now to replace them with Aussie natives which is a bit ignorant.

We have a fireplace, so we gather wood left out for grabs after street trees are lopped.
Hence i've split heaps of Ash for firewood with the axe and carved a few pieces of it.
Some bits are wavy and rock hard, then it shines-up a treat glowing like a fresh apple.

Ash trees here, are actually an Australian variety, F. excelsior, Claret Ash, bred for our harsh and dry climate.
Obviously Ash is no relation to Mountain Ash that is a giant gum-tree E. regnans.

Mountain Ash, is a king-size Eucalypt, which is occasionally used for guitars here, it has a straight grain.
However Eucalyptus regnans trees have issues, it is a rotten wood to work due to the sawdust is irritant.
