well there you go man, sure enough, that's a BBR HB35. I have a catalog page somewhere of the BBR series, and never saw mention of a 35. Very cool. Looks exactly like the other MIJ 35's from that period. String through, etc, but for the pickups.

There's a very long thread here on the forum that debates the origin of this vintage guitar. Whether they may be Matsumoku, Yamaki, or some other builder. Feel free to read up on it and add whatever info you may have.

Thanks for Sharing the photos. Very cool!
