Information: 

Westbury was a guitar brand name of the Unicord company, from the 1970s to the early 1980s. The Westbury brandname comes from the location of the original Unicord American distribution center in Westbury, New York.

Westbury guitars were manufactured in Japan by the Matsumoku Industrial Company, who also made guitars for Guyatone, Fujigen Gakki, Kanda Shokai, Hoshino, Nippon Gakki(Yamaha), Aria, and Norlin amongst others. Production of Westbury guitars ran from around 1978 to 1982.

Recently Charlie Francipane revived the Westbury brand name and began producing American made Westbury guitars.

Worth

I own a westbury electric and would like to know what it might be worth.

Westbury Guitar

Westbury made three grades of guitars: standard, deluxe and custom. I also own a Westbury Deluxe. It's a sunburst, solid maple. I bought it in the early 80's when I was 16 and just learning how to play. It was used and I paid $300. From what I can tell on eBay searches I have done over the past several years, it's probably worth about the same today - most prices I have seen have been from $200 to $400.

Westbury awesome guitar I have

I got one at a pawnshop fifteen years ago for $60. It's one of the best guitars I've ever had. Plays great and stays in tune forever. It's a really solid instrument. I don't know the model number but would like to know more about it. Clear maple color. Two humbucker type pickups. It's great. Three piece set neck and I think it's a Gibson style tuno style bridge. Anyone have info??
