Kana Music Canada has announced that it has become the exclusive Canadian distributor of Aria and Aria Pro II Guitars (acoustic, classical, flamenco, and Aria electric guitars) as well as Fiesta (By Aria) and Mojo (By Aria).
Aria was formed in Japan in 1953 and began manufacturing acoustic guitars in 1960. In 1966, the company began manufacturing electric guitars under the Aria, Aria Diamond, Diamond, and less frequently, Arita brand names. The Aria brand name was changed to Aria Pro II in late 1975 and has been used mostly for electric guitars and basses. All guitars were made in Japan until 1988, when production of less expensive models was transferred to other countries.
