Hi,

the seller says explicit the guitar has been made in the 70's! :?:
Now it's getting strange.
But I could be quite imaginable, that some Italian guitar maker in this period just jumped on the train.

Nowadays there is a least one really good Italian guitar brand which I know of.

Hi,

Thanks.

I've been watching Westones on the 'bay for years and never seen one of these!! It's very cool but very much an unknown to me; David may know more...
