Hello Steeno and Welcome! Smile

First, you must establish if it is a Matsumoku Westone or whether it is one of the modern Korean copies. Do you have any photos of it or are there any serial numbers written on?

I suggest that you check out Westone.info (link at the top of this page) to see if the model in question is listed there. If it is a genuine Westone then £40 is a bargain!

I hope this helps.

i went ahead and bought it for alot less!!

brought it home and give it a good clean, set up and new strings!

Its a fantastic sounding and playing machine! even compared to my gibson lp and tokai's!!

well its black cellulose paint, one piece maple bolt on neck, single volume control and a pup selecter switch.

The westone logo on the head stock is a gold outline with a black centre and a black headstock, the neck is also bound.

Hope this helps anyone who can identify this guitar as i cant find any info anywhere!!

If it's a Rich copy, then it's a Korean. You're right, there isn't much known about them at all... perhaps you could enlighten us as to what the pups are, construction etc.?

Yep, agree this will be Korean rather than Uncle Mat. Nothing wrong with that if it's a player.

Under £40 --- gotta be a bargain Very Happy
