1976 Westminster (Matsumoku) Japan ES-280R Hollowbody
Made in the famous Matsumoku factory in the mid 70's. These guitars were produced with many different brand names on the headstock (including Aria Pro II, Greco and Ibanez) and the Westminster ones are an odd rarity!
Loaded with what seems to be the original Maxon pickups, it's a 628mm scale length and weighs just 2.6kg's.
Received a full setup and service prior to being listed including a new bridge, fret polish, new strings and a flush of the pots (mostly functional with some slight crackle).
Binding deteriorating as pictured and the laminate has been reglued in spots. Neck has a well used satin finish and plays nicely. Has seen a lot of love over the years but still has life left, sold as-is.
