Am looking for info on a c. It may have been a guitar that could have been purchased from a Sears or Mont. Ward catalog?
It was likely built at the Matsumoku factory in Japan, who also built a number of other well known makes. In the s, they started importing instruments from Japan. Most had similar designs, with the matching pearloid headstock, pickguard, pickup retainer and selector plates.
Matsumoku had been a woodworking and furniture building company before transitioning to guitars, so they were uniquely well-equipped for the task when the guitar boom hit. It does, however, have some quirks, largest of which being a slightly twisted neck, though our tech was able to ameliorate the issue and get the action comfortable. Apart from that, the bridge pickup volume pot malfunctions when turned all the way to ten, but dialing it back a hair makes it pass tone just fine.

This is one of the most frustrating questions from the MIJ collector. People often make the mistake of citing the American or European importer as the 'maker' of the guitar, when in fact several Japanese manufacturers were producing badged guitars out of their plants and shipping them to America and Europe to sell. Japanese manufacturers made multiple badges at the same plant, many of whom resemble each other closely.
