Nope; it's not a Matt and his references are crap - the APII LC 600 is a straight ahead LP copy and the Aria guitars made in the 70s were also copies of Fender, Gibson, Ricky and Mosrite guitars. Doesn't look like anything I've ever seen by a major builder...

Kimbara is the brand name of a range of guitars which were
commissioned by the UK-based musical instrument wholesaler FCN Music.
The brand name was first registered on the 2nd of January 1968 and the
guitar production involved FCN Music commissioning guitars from various
different factories across the Far East. Initially guitars were
produced in Japan, then in the late 1980s guitars were sourced from
Korea, and in the late 1990s instrument production moved to factories
in China
. ( Wikipedia)

Actually John, its a nigh on perfect replica of a Gibson L6S as plaued by Carlos Santana. Well I wouldn't say no anyway, and I am not a great admirer of Les Pauls !
