    Are you sure it's not an ARIA bass? Those are pretty good.

    I don't know about "ariel". Could it possibly be "aries"? They are fine hand-crafted instruments, I believe from Austria.

    I couldn't find any info from here or google, sorry. My only recommendation is to play the bass, and if you like it, buy it. Just make sure all of the electronics work, the tuning pegs, the truss rod, etc.

    I would bet almost anything it was made in a generic factory in Japan in the mid '60s to mid '70s. These factories turned out a bunch of different designs, and then export companies would put their own "brand name" on the headstock for sale all over the world. So there are thousands of very similar basses out there with different random names on the headstock.
    In tip-top condition it's worth maybe $100, maybe $150 if you love it. In questionable condition i wouldn't pay more than $40 or $50 for it.
