We received this Aria AF-65N on a trade in. It is in very good condition overall and just has some minor cosmetic blemishes that will be detailed below.
The Auditorium series from Aria is what many brands would call an OM, Folk, or 000 body size. This makes it very comfortable to sit with in comparison to its dreadnought or jumbo counterparts, while having a more mids focused and balanced tone.
The all solid wood construction of this model really brings out the warm mids and rich harmonics of the mahogany back and sides. The guitar has loads of sustain, and a very vocal quality to the tone.
The guitar has just been restrung with D'Addario's new XS series Phosphor Bronze Extra Light strings for a smooth feel, easy playability, and shimmery sound. The setup is low but clean sounding with some space to move in either direction to suit certain play-styles.
From a blemish standpoint, the guitar is certainly noticeably used when inspected closely, but from more than a few feet away looks extremely clean. The majority of the marks on it are small dents in the finish on the bass side of the body on the inside of the lower bout. There are 2 or 3 small marks like this on the top and back of the guitar as well, though they aren't as noticeable. There is some general wear in the form on thin scratches in the gloss finish on the back, top and sides as well, though they are invisible at most angles. The pick guard has some noticeable scratches and one more significant scratch near the thin end of the plastic.
Lastly, the bridge of the guitar had lifted slightly at one point and has been re-glued to seal and secure it. This appears to be very secure and shouldn't cause any issues down the road and hadn't impacted the top's integrity, however there is some glue residue along the back edge of the bridge that you can see if you look at it from the bottom.
I didn't get any close up images of the blemishes as they are pretty hard to capture properly. So if you would like to see more detail message us firstname.lastname@example.org from a video.
