'Toledo' guitars were made by Aria Guitars of Japan under contract for the Canadian Conservatory of Music, a music school chain based in Toronto with braches all across Canada. The School went to Aria to supply them with playable and good value instrument that would be marketed to their own students. Everyone who has contacted this site has always commented on how will these guitars played, a testament to the roll of these guitars. The Conservatory imported Toledo branded Aria guitars through most of the 60's and early 70's. Any Toledo brand guitars found outside of Canada have been bought there buy their owners.
Aria Guitars is one of the older Japanese guitar manufactures, and they built a nice guitar with decent workmanship. If you see an old Aria, many of them have the same design elements, switches, knobs, etc, and even the font used for the name plate is the same. Aria still builds an extensive line of guitars to this day.
