1976 Westminster (Matsumoku) Thinline Telecaster Deluxe (Made in Japan)
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! Perfect for a high quality Japanese guitar that'll confuse the hell out of the audience or your mates with it's odd name.
Loaded with what seems to be the original Maxon pickups, it's a 628mm scale length and weighs around 3.6kg's. Received a full setup and service prior to being listed including a new input jack, fret polish, new strings and a flush of the pots.
Refinished by the previous owner in a purple then what looks to be an intentional relic job. Also has a dragon drawn or etched into the pickguard. If you love it, then own it! If you hate it, you can easily have it refinished and replace the pickguard! Nut also has a crack on the Low E but the string still sits comfortably.
