Aria was founded in 1956 by Mr. Shiro Arai. The first instruments that Aria manufactured were classical guitars, which rapidly became popular in the world-wide guitar community. Building upon that initial success, Aria expanded their product line to include electric instruments and an impressive array of acoustic instruments.
Today, Aria's headquarters are located in beautiful Nagoya, Japan with their products currently being distributed to 65 countries all around the world, making them one of the most recognizable brand names today. Over the years many great musicians, like Neil Schon, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Taylor and Cliff Burton, to name just a few, have enjoyed great success playing Aria instruments.
Aria's success comes from the simple fact that they always put the player first in everything they do.
