Information: 

The Columbus brand name was used on Japanese and Taiwanese made guitars and basses imported into the UK in the 1970s and 1980s. They were budget instruments, but were playable and are fondly remembered by many UK guitarists who started out on a 1970s Columbus Les Paul or Strat copy. Some Columbus badged guitars were made by the Japanese Matsumoku and Tombo companies.
