Hi,
Having recently discovered this site in relation to an Aria Pro II guitar I've acquired & seeing all the other related makes/labels, I'm curious:

I have a "Casio MG-510" which I've owned from new; a Japanese built Strat clone which has MIDI conversion electronics in addition to the conventional pickups etc.

The online info says they were manufactured for Casio by Fuji Gen Gakki; Matsumoku info says Fuji Gen gakki is one of the many companies they manufactured guitars for ...

Is my 1987 Casio actually or possibly another Matsumoku ??

Nope... Matsumoku had folded up its tent by 87 and many of the Mats brands were being designed and built in Korea.

OK, thanks.

I thought I'd seen 1988 as when Matsumoku ended, obviously a wrong date or I'd misread something.
