Looks really similar to my pre law suit YAMATO.
Which I have to admit is really fine instrument.
The starting price is quite high, hope it doesn't rise much.
Good luck in case you go for bid.

You realise this isn't a Matsumoku Westone, eh, and one of the recent German ones?

Are you sure about that? I think on the neckplate there is written "steel adjustable neck, made in japan" (to be sure I asked the seller, I'll post his answer asap). The logo on the headstock is also the same like the one on uncle Matt's acoustic guitars. It looks quite like these: link

At first look I would believe it's a fake logo on a Yamato or so , but I'm not sure.

Maybe an undocumented early Westone model...

Surely not a new one : this axe is from the 70's no doubt Smile

Cool; happy to be wrong, eh!! westone lp custom on ebay germany Icon_biggrin However, this is another head scratcher for the gang; is there any way of working out the builder, for example?

Uh, I thought early Westones were a Matsumoku project? What is there that would raise suspicion of it being from another builder?

Since no law suit headstock, the serial would make it a 1980 since from 1976 and up the serials were relevant to the year of built. Would this not be part of any Westone Catalogue for 1980 or 1981?

I agree with John that this is a head scratcher.....

I believe it's the real deal too.
Looks an awful lot like the El Degas branded LP's we saw a lot of in Canada in the mid to late 70's which I'm pretty much convinced were Mats.
