This hollowbody is similar to many Japanese guitars of the 60s, it is rather close to some Aria Diamond models.

Since it is very likely that this guitar is part of the early Japanese Stagg production (see the mechanics above), we can reasonably assume that the logo shown here ("italic-gold") corresponds to this first period also for other instruments that bear it.

Probably the early 70s. But the next "Hertiecaster" model seems of the same age, yet it bears a more modern logo.

Another bit of mystery...
