I found an older Aria with a LONG neck on it today. It's an open back banjo with no resonator. Pawn shop wants $199 minus 25% so around $150 or so. Just wondering what the word is on these and if they are even worth having. That neck was WAY thick.
I never saw a long neck Aria, but most the Aria instruments I've seen have been decent. $150.00 for a decent banjo is a good deal. If you like it, buy it. You shouldn't have any trouble getting your money back out of it if you decide you don't want to keep it.
