How did Matsumoku end up in the mix as Washburn manufacturer?   I just recently purchased a 84' Washburn Wing series T-bird.. (assume its Matsumoku) Please correct me if i am mistaken.. thanks.

Ric,

Thats exactly the big misunderstanding. Chushin was commisioned by Matsumoku on some projects. Chushin also worked on Washburn. Ergo: Matsumoku build Washburn.... Thats the reason people draw that conclusion. Its not a big jump as well :)

The truth is that Matsumoku didnt have anything to do with Washburn Wing. Yamaki did from the beginning and Chushin took over when Yamaki went under.

Sorry to update this old thread, but there are some very interesting developments doing the last year.

We got a contact that use to work for Daion, and we are slowly but surely getting the whole story.

Feel free to join our Facebook group if you wanna know more :)
