Introduced around 1970 the Aria 5502T was a top-quality thinline ES-335 style hollow bodiedelectric. Available in red finish. It had an unusual bolt-on adjustable neck joint, with two screws and a small neck plate – from the look of it seems likely that there is a mortice and tenon joint and these screws lock it in place.

The Body

The body has various scratches, and dings on it as well as some buckle rash and scratches on the back of the guitar. These can be seen in the photos, but overall this guitar looks great.

The Neck

The neck is straight and has a ding on the side, and some checking at its base but doesn't affect the playability of this instrument.

The Headstock

The Headstock has some cosmetic imperfections but still looks great. The tuners all work perfectly as well.

The Hardware

The Hardware is in overall very good condition but does have some tarnishing on it.

We're not exactly sure what the exact date it. Based on the research it appears to be a 70's model guitar.
