I have the option of selling my Aria STB Series bass but am considering keeping it with a plan to upgrade the electrics. My Aria, which is an entry level bass, is modelled on a J bass but it has active circuitry.
I read lots of positive comments about Entwistle replacement pickups. If a replacement J control plate is the same size as fitted on the Aria, the upgrade process would be straightforward. And allow me to retain the existing electrics. I understand that different value pots are needed for passive pickups.
Do you think it is worthwhile upgrading my Aria or should I sell it as it is? And buy a Squier J bass sometime in the future? The Aria is not a patch on my Fender bass but it was not far off a Squier PJ bass that I tried out in a shop recently. I like the colour of the Aria and as it was my first bass, the bass that started me on the low end..........Thanks.
