The Chushin factory was established in 1948 by K. Miyazawa to make educational instruments. During the 1950s the company started making electric guitars and by 1961 it was making electric guitars only. In 1972 Y. Miyazawa (the son of the founder) joined the company. Chushin Gakki made OEM guitars for Charvel, Jackson and Robin in the early 1980s, as well as their own designs, such as Cobran, Bambu and El Maya (EM series). Chushin Gakki closed their factory in 2011.

I have just bought a Camel I believe it to be made by Chushin, it was a higher quality strat than the Fresher guitars that were also made by Chushin.

Did the Chushin factory make Columbus electric guitars? I've been told they did and would just like to clarify.
