Although Aria Guitars have produced other "unofficial" Cliff Burton models (SB-1000CB, SB-CB), this is the first official signature bass that has both Metallica's and the Burton family's blessing.

Of course it is a Re-Issue of the Black and Gold 1, which was made from around 1982-1987. 

Aria have really paid attention to the details including the "Aria Pro II" logo on the tuners.
