Alas, there's no longer any symbol for the vowel at this position in the
IPA: [a] is low front unrounded and [A] is low back unrounded. There's
probably a diacritic you could apply...but anyway, as you probably know, the
cardinal vowels of the IPA are simply set up at uniform distances from each
other--they don't necessarily actually represent any sound in any language.
They're just points of reference.

Cheers,
