I have now updated the entry LINK
As an aside, the seller made a comment about a connection between Matsumoku and Greco which I found interesting:
Matsumoku: The Company made vintage Greco Electric Guitars for Kanda Shokai, MIJ Epiphone Guitars and Aria Pro II Guitars. If you are a Greco Fun (sic) this should be a nice one to your collection from Greco Kanda Shokai which sold this Weston (sic)
Two other interesting things came from the description.
- The serial number was 1974011 which he interpreted as a 1974 build. Sounds like it might be correct, and if so, we have a variation on the Westone 7-digit serial numbering system. Post-1980 the first number=year, pre-1980 (70's) the first 4 numbers=year.
Discussion and consensus requested on this.
- The wood used on the body and sides is identified as Nyatoh a new one on me. It appears to be a tight grained wood somewhere between a Mahogany and a Rosewood. DETAILS HERE
