Columbus was one of the lower-quality Japanese makers at the time. Although some people try to get a good price by listing them as "70s Japanese lawsuit!!!" and suchlike, they're actually less pleasant than copies made today in China. It is very likely that the wood will be plywood. If you undo one of the plastic cavity covers around the back, you could well see the tell-tale signs of plywood.

The pickups are probably worth £30+ each.
