Aria STB precision left handed beginner bass guitar
The Aria STB Left-handed Precision bass offers exceptional value for money in a quality beginner bass guitar.
The Aria STB-PB features a solid alder body for a rich sustain, with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard for a comfortable playing action.
Precision vs. Jazz Bass
The P pickup is a split coil humbucker whereas the J pickups are 2 single coil. This gives the P bass a darker and fatter sound with a bigger, heavier bottom while the Jazz bass has a cleaner and somewhat thinner tone.
The necks are the other main difference. A Jazz bass has a much thinner neck compared to a P Bass. The difference is only about a quarter inch at the nut but it makes a huge difference in playability. This doesn't mean the Jazz bass is always better - some riffs are easier on the P bass because of the extra space between strings.
The bodies are different too. The P bass is more like a Strat shape, whereas Jazz basses tend to be offset at the bottom.

WHY ARE THERE TWO PRICES?
The prices reflect the level of service we can offer depending on how you buy from us:
When you buy online
If you click-and-buy a bass from our website, we will offer what every other mail-order company does – boxed warehouse stock sent by post which has passed the manufacturer’s quality control and is covered under their warranty. You can find out more about warranties and returns on the Delivery page.
When you buy in-store
Being made from natural materials, every bass is different. Nothing beats trying a range of models, including the exact guitar you intend to purchase so you know its right for you.
Before we sell a bass, we carry out a 16 point inspection, making skilled observations and adjustments to ensure it sounds its best, plays easily and is finished to a high standard. This often picks up on things that the factory’s quality control missed and we return up to 20% of our shop stock because it fails to meet our standards.
To ensure you get the most out of your new bass and to keep it in top condition, we also include our FREE accessories and service package worth over £225. This includes important extras such as a carry case, digital tuner, spare strings, strap and plectrums so you’re ‘ready to play’, as well as a FREE quarterly service, where we inspect and adjust your guitar and offer free labour if you want a restring. After 12 months we offer a full service with free strings, and the opportunity to extend your service plan at a reduced rate.
Add to this the other facilities we offer, including finance options, part exchanges and a loan instrument if yours is in for repair, buying in-store definitely gives the best value for money.
