Hi, I just got this bass guitar and have no idea what make it is, they said it was a Westbury 'Les Paul' Bass Guitar but I have no way to tell if it is for sure of not, only thing I can see written on it is on the back, "Made in Japan"

Hello, your link doesn't appear to be working Sad

Westbury were generally made by the Matsumoku Factory in Japan, some very nice instruments too. I have a Westbury Track IV bass myself. As for the 'Les Paul' I guess they're just referring to the shape...It won't be a Gibson, if that's what you're wondering lol.

Pics would be great.

Well now, that's a bit gorgeous! Full size, the top looks nicely arched, is it? Even more convinced thats a Matsumoku now, won't earn you mega-bucks but should be nice to play. Enjoy it! (and yes, Im a bit jealous)

Probably a bit unusual feeling for Fender players, but worth it for the looks. 34" scale, binding, block inlays and nicely spread twin buckers. Yummy.
