The CSL brand name was used on guitars distributed in the UK by Summerfield Brothers of Gateshead England. CSL stands for Charles Summerfield Limited. CSL guitars were made during the 1970s in the FujiGen Gakki factory in Matsumoto Japan.
FujiGen made many guitars for other brands including Ibanez, Fender, Yamaha and Greco. CSL instruments were typically copies of popular American models including electric and acoustic guitars as well as basses by Fender, Gibson and Rickenbacker. FujiGen certainly knew how to build guitars so the CSL models should be worth a try.
The CSL company was wound up in 1993, but Maurice Summerfield (the son of Charles) now trades as Summerfield Musical Instruments.
