Barclay guitars were typically entry level guitars with shorter scale necks aimed at beginners. In the 1960s they were made in Japan (some possibly by Kawai/Teisco) for distribution in the USA. Some Barclay brand guitars were also made in the USA - most likely by Harmony (for example on of the Barclay Gibson copies shared the same pickups as the Harmony Rocket model).
