it is made by a japanese guitar co. called T. Haruo but i have been unable to find any info on the maker.
its a wonderful d-45 style acoustic with great inlay work.

Aria subcontracted to a lot of different manufacturers

Aria subcontracted to a lot of different manufacturers. Post some pics on the HARUO Fanpage on Facebook and I’ll take a look. HARUO/Terada factory in Nagoya is pretty easy to spot.

T-Haruo Aria

Your suspician is confirmed. Aria did have the Terada factory (which Terada Haruo was CEO and master luthier of) manufacture some of it's top of the line Martin clones during 1977-1979. I too have such an Aria branded 1977 T-Haruo 12 string identified on the Aria label as a model AD-65, which is the equivilent of a T-Haruo model T-60. Everything is identical to the Haruos of the same time save for the label, the headstock logo and the missing T Haruo inlay in the fretboard. Absolutely marvelous instruments.
