Castilla Les Paul

Castilla guitars were made in Japan for C Bruno & Sons in the mid 1970s (it was part of the Kaman Music Corporation). The Castilla 1976 catalog has two Kopy Kat series Les Paul models :

  • the CE-351 model - has all the controls mounted on a plastic scratchplate including 2 slider pickup selector switches. Cost $139.50 in 1976
  • the CE-350 model - looks more like a standard Les Paul with the toggle selector switch in the usual place. Cost $154.50 in 1976
