    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”

      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.

      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)

      Hello, your link doesn’t appear to be working 🙁

      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.
