I was just browsing eBay for interesting stuff when I stumbled over this auction:
I recognized it as something looking very much like the first item here:
Well guys...what's the value of this pretty little thing? I won't bid for it anyway, since I'm a lefthanded person. Still I like the look of this little fellow.
Maybe someone is interested?

That's a Matsumoku - probably originally Aria branded. Giveaways? "Wavy Grover" copy tuners, toaster-type neck pup, and the guy quotes the "steel adjustable neck/random number/Made In Japan off the neckplate. Have a look in the Aria catalogues archive at www.matsumoku.org - there's a pic of that bass & its model number somewhere!
The Ibanez bass in your link has a couple of differences for the eagle-eyed: full width sparkly inlays, checked binding & chrome humbuckers, for a start - and they're a lot more rare!
