Introduced around 1970 the Aria 5502T was a top-quality thinline ES-335 style hollow bodied electric. 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. It had a 24.75 inches scale length, ebony fingerboard, gold plated hardware, roller-bridge with trapeze tail-piece
