Here's an ebay ad for a through neck guitar that the seller thinks is Matsumoku made:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LATE-70S-MATSUMOKU-MADE-NECK-THRU-BODY-GUITAR-FOR-RESTORE-ARIA-PRO-II-WESTONE-/261240635573?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item3cd327c0b5

The ad is certainly "interesting"

One for the brave ?

Here's something that could be related

Set neck, not neck thru as seller puts it.

Defo a Hondo H1030, had to bail out after having an offer accepted yesterday, I hate it when the wife is right....... Its so rare an occurrence it's hard to believe!
Not a lot needs doing to this one, frets have some wear "appropriate to age" yadda yadda.
Good luck if anyone here plumps for it.

I have one and Sarge is right - It is Hondo and it is definitely Matsumoku.

They are not DiMarzios but MMK's . Not 45's but the PAFfy ones 73's or 61's or whatever.

To tell you the truth I can't quite recall myself.

Very worthwhile addition to a Mats collection if the price is right
