Tiki King's Ukulele Database:
WestminsterMade in Japan
I have seen both Soprano and Bariton Westminster Ukuleles. Appears to be fairly modern, 1960's or later. Has "Westminster" in gold "old english" style lettering on headstock.
Westminster also made accoustic and electric guitars. They specialized in copies of popular guitars of the time such as Fender, Vox and Gibson. I belive the "Parent" Company was Matsumoku of Japan, a large woodworking firm. The "Westminster" company is belived to have gone out of business in the 1980's. In the Late 1970's though the mid 1980's, Matusmoku was contracted to make the majority of Washburn electric Guitars.
In 1979, Matsumoku began to market its own guitars under the "Westone" name
