So just an update here (finally) as promised on the lowest price I've paid so far...

Turns out my co-worker tried to be Keef for around 16 weeks instead of 6, but it was back in 1975 instead of 1977 anyway (his mom actually had found the original bill of sale on it). I posted a thread over at Guitar Gallery in their "unknown / other" section so y'all can follow the guessing game there as it unfolds. Still not certain if it's Matsumoku, but Matsumoto almost certainly is the area it was born in.

Oh right, the link...

Thanks Damian! I have been over at Torch's blog with fair frequency lately to reference a number of off brands I seem to bump into. What is the general consensus as to his accuracy? I never can find where he publishes the documentation he has to back up his statements.

The construction of the neck (3 piece) is what I am hanging most of my hopes of it being Mats on, but the neck join on it I've not seen on any other models. It is actually 4 screws (opposing pairs) with the hidden pair accessed via the removal of the neck pickup... scratch

Ice

I have replied over in Matsumoku.org. Neck joint is typical of Univox some Univox and Aria Les Pauls and if you are really lucky, they look like they might be Maxon pickups.

Yeah Damian - Neck joint was the same as the Jedson Les Paul which I have now moved on. The Jedson was identical to Univox and Aria badged models.
