Manufactured by Matsumoku in Japan in the early 1970's.
Matsumoku also manufactured the nearly identical Univox Coily but these were released in the USA under the Epiphone brand.
Maple laminate/plywood body
Bolt-on maple neck with bound rosewood fretboard
Two double-coil pickups with chrome covers
Bigsby-style vibrato system (It's not a Bigsby but it operates similarly)
Abalone "E" logo on scratchplate
In amazing condition considering its age; it does have some light surface scratches on the body, headstock and scratchplate, but certainly not as many as you'd expect for a used guitar its age! The body also has a couple of tiny dings in the paint and some paint cracks which are to be fully expected of a guitar this old, and doesn't affect the structural integrity of the guitar!
It's worth nothing that, as part of the set-up process, we have added substantial shim in the neck joint in order to align the next to the best of its potential (pictured). It's been done properly and works a treat!
This guitar has had one of our GOLD set-ups, including branded strings (Worth over £40.00 in total!)
