I bought one a couple of weeks back, I don't know how it compares with a Mosrite, but it plays well, I did run a fine sanding block down the edge of the finger boardjust to take out the newness soften the fret ends and also polished up the matt neck finish with T cut.
It sounds really good, but I would have prefered the model only available in Japan with a Jazz / Jag trem.
To that end I've also got an Eastwood Sidejack on order, the Sidejack has a bound body and neck and does have the trem I would have prefered.
I'll post which I consider best.
Here in the UK the new Mosrite's are mega expensive around £3500 so the Aria at £160 or there abouts are really good value and plays as well as any of my other guitars costing a lot more, the only downside is it's a little heavy.
