    Does anyone know about Westminster basses. This one was given to me by a friend. He had it for over 40 years. It was made in the 60's in Japan. Plays great and It sounds just as good as my Fender Jazz 78. That's all I know about it. Has anyone owned a Westminster bass and is it worth anything. Thank You, Timmy

    It's known that Westminster was a brand owned by the Kanda Shokai trading house (a.k.a. "Greco") and built by the Matsumoku factory, which has a reputation for quality.

    A Canadian company called Pennino Music imported Westminsters for the North American market.

    A friend of mine had a Westminster Les Paul guitar that he used to play a lot. It was okay. Never seen their basses before but it looks cool.
