Here’s everything you need to know about Aria guitars: they’re great quality at an affordable price.
In fact, to call them a fantastic beginner brand would be doing them a disservice because, although their guitars aren’t expensive, they’re more than good enough to compete in the big leagues.
Now, if you’re looking for an awesome axe that lives up to this reputation, then it’s about time we introduced you to the PE 350. This lightweight guitar with a Les Paul body is perfect for everything from Blues-Rock to Jazz Funk and will never let you down on stage.
With a thin, basswood body, and a smooth, heel-less neck joint, the designers of the PE 350 clearly sought to prioritise comfort over everything else. This sleek, ergonomic design guides you from one note to the next in a way that’s graceful to touch and will allow you to maximise your skill and precision.
The PE 350 also comes with two versatile humbucker pickups for that classic Gibson Les Paul sound.
Beyond that Aria have actually kept things pretty simple, but that’s not a bad thing. Instead of overloading this guitar with budget takes on premium features, they’ve focused their efforts on giving you an instrument that sounds decent and feels amazing.
It’s an approach other budget brands could do to emulate.
So how much should you expect to pay for one of these?
On average, the PE 350 sells for around $400-500 of your hard-earned money. For that, you get a beautiful vintage sunburst Les Paul without having to take out a second mortgage on your house.
But how does it sound?
Well, here at Tonepedia, we like to let the sound speak for itself, so give it a listen and see what you think of the PE 350 in action.
