Logo I have never seen again

This was the first guitar I ever had, given to me by my parents in... '80? Late 70's early 80's. . .


I've never found the maker. The guitar store owner told my dad it was a Hondo, but i don't think so. It's close to the Hoshina logo I found on this site.

Any ideas? Plywood Les Paul copy.


Mystery logo

I agree it looks a bit like the current Hoshino logo:

I'll see if I can track down an older Hoshino logo

Logo Hoshino?

I feel that logo must be Hoshino - but I can't find any examples of Hoshino guitars distributed under their own brand name!
