Looks like an Aria. Also goes by other names which you should find in that search; supposedly Matsumoku is the factory and the original builder. I have a 1970s resonator that's badged Conrad that is identical to the Takamine DB-180, Gretsch, Maya, Elite, an few other names. Matsumoku made those too.

It should be a keeper if it's in nice playing condition. Nice Japanese made classicals from the 60s can be really sweet, even though back and sides are usually laminate, they are built nice and light and resonant after a certain price point, and there are still some great sleepers out there.
