You just have to love Aria guitars. Even if you don’t love them, you have to respect them for not having many boundaries.
They are a lot like that friend you had in your early 20s who was up to do anything on any given night out. Sometimes because of them you had the best night of your life, other times you barely escaped with your freedom.
Even if you look at the diversity in the Aria guitars on this blog you see that they are up for anything.
I love the look of this Retro 1532J. It caught my eye as I thought it was a mint condition vintage guitar. But as it turns out, this is a reissue that they introduced in 2010. The shape is clearly to emulate the Jazzmaster or Jaguar, but it has a more pawnshop aesthetic.

Ok, I experienced to share one particular very last venture by The New Design Team….largely simply because this one particular was obvious right away who influenced some of the daring decor selections. 🙂 We wanted to instill a entertaining ambiance in this gorgeous townhouse by using a daring palette. To give the room a youthful feel we made the decision to paint out most of the period features (to tone them down) and then layer designs from distinct eras for an eclectic and inviting appear. We sourced and repurposed items from a assortment of spots: thrift stores, antique sellers, high street and personalized created orders (the scorching pink lacquered coffee table is primarily based on an original style by Abigail Ahern).

Here’s what the eBay seller tells us about the guitar:
Becker Guitars began in 1995 as a repair shop in the basement of founder Dan Becker. After its first years of operation, Becker Guitars moved to a new shop in Stoughton, Massachusetts. While the company grew into a full service guitar repair and restoration center, Becker began venturing into guitar making.
In the spring of 2006 Dan Becker, brought on Maine guitar luthier Ryan Martin and began to focus on designing and producing custom instruments. Becker soon moved from its smaller shop in Stoughton, Massachusetts to a larger space in Attleboro, Massachusetts in order to accommodate a growing production line.
In 2007 Becker unveiled their first prototype, an Imperial model, to the public at the first annual Premier Guitar Festival. 2008 saw the release of Becker Guitars’ flagship production line, The Retro Series. First introduced in 2008, The Retro Series is our flagship guitar line.
This model features a mahogany body which is contoured to maximise comfort and ease playability. The neck is also mahogany, with a Flamed Maple fretboard, 16 inch radius, 22 stainless steel fret. Gotoh machine heads.
An interesting feature is an additional “zero” fret (see photo) to allow closer control of string tension and also allows for much lower action. The action on this model is very low, making it an incredibly fast neck indeed. The neck is topped off with a bone nut.
The Pickups are incredible – Lindy Fralin Hot Humbuckers, each of which is coil tapped (separate switch controlling each), to make a huge range of tones available. Pickups are selected via a three-way toggle switch (Neck, Neck/Bridge combined and Bridge). There is also a “kill-switch”, so cancel all output when required.
All-in-all, this is a top specification guitar, hand-crafted using the best materials available, extremely flexible with great playability.
The body colour is Kiwi Green and it has a Satin Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish. The wooden pickguard is made from the same flamed maple as the fingerboard, so there is no “plastic” feel to this instrument whatsoever.
