Blitz by Aria Pro II Leopard BLP-SLP Yellow 2015
Blitz by Aria BLP-SLP, made in Korea 2015, gloss yellow. Blitz is a sub-brand of Aria Pro II, offering vintage Gibson style guitars to the Japan domestic market. This one references the classic LP Special, so you get a set neck and a pair of tasty soapbar pickups. The tone is a lot of fun: big snappy highs and a creamy, juicy midrange. The hardware is sturdy and the build quality is great; this punches well past it's humble dollar value. The gaudy yellow finish and clean classic lines lend this an aesthetic that treads the line between proper and punk; it's a classy little anarchist. Money well spent!
