    Default The mystery, Anea electric...

    I recently purchased ( ebay ) an old beat up guitar I had never heard of : Anea .
    This a three pickup ( 2 single coils and a humbucker ) with a Tuneomatic style bridge and stop. It has a hard maple bolt on neck with a rose wood fret board and jumbo frets.
    The body is a piece of hard maple sandwiched between a top and back of ash. Through the center of the body ( in line with the neck ) is a piece composed of nine separate hard maple strips. The body has the general shape of a PRS with beautifully sculpted hip and arm cutouts . The workmanship appears to be of very high quality. I am guessing this guitar dates from the early seventies but am unable to find any real info other than Anea may have been the precursor to the Japanese Daion line.
    The project is coming along nicely, it will make a super blues axe.
    Anybody know ANYTHING about this brand ?

    Never heard of that one! Are you sure it's not an Aria?

    Positive ! I've run across 3 or 4 people that have Anea acoustics, and one guy with an Anea electric bass ( the same construction as this guitar ). Everyone is very pleased with the quality of their instruments, but nobody knows anything about them !
    The only info I could garner is that this Japanese guy worked for Martin for some number of years, left and returned to Japan to form Anea ( which was short lived ), then went with Daion ( also short lived ).

    The Anea guitar was designed in Texas and named after my daughter with the same name. They were built in Japan and Korea. I distributed the Daion guitars and when they went out of business in the middle 80's I put the Daion name on some of the Anea guitars for about 4 more years. Hope this helps you guys.
