I had a Shaftesbury Telecaster Copy, purchased in 1972.
The Shaftesbury label of guitar was put out by Rose Morris Music of Shaftesbury Avenue in London.
These guitars also included the Ned Callen label of bass guitars.
They were Japenese copies and were made to exacting standards and were top instruments that did not cost the world to purchase. I regretably sold my Telecaster copy in 1974 and have been trying to locate another in Australia for the last couple of years.
Tell your husband to hang on to his bass guitar, it may not be worth much in monetary value but is worth a whole lot more in personal pleasure of ownwership. Whats he giong to do? Sell it and then buy a Fender. Stay with the Vintage guitar he already has.

Hi, I remember seeing only one of these guitars around...that was a long time ago. I used to own a shaftesbury bass guitar, which was a copy of a rickenbacker 4001 (this was my dream bass at the time) but the shaftesbury was as good as any genuine rickenbacker, or even better than some of them which I tried. I gave up playing 20+ years ago, & I sold the bass (£70, which was what I paid for it 3 years earlier) I have started playing again and am now cursing the day I sold it!!!!! What was I thinking of? Rickenbackers are now £1000 - £2000, & I can't find a shaftesbury anywhere. You tell your husband he can hang on to his guitar. They don't take up much room, you don't HAVE to use an amp, and, like me, he may regret getting rid of it in the future.
They may not cost as much as the genuine thing, but for Japanes guitars at that time, these were brilliant!!!
