1970's Crestline Goldfoil MIJ

It is a unknown Crestline model single pickup Electric Guitar from the 1970's with a single goldfoil pickup. The prize on this guitar is the goldfoil pickup and I've already used it for another project.

Crestline guitars were built in Japan from the mid to late 1970s and distributed by the Grossman Music Corporation of Cleveland, OH. They are entry level to intermediate solid body guitars featured designs based on classic American favorites. Crestline offered a wide range of stringed instruments, including classical, folk, dreadnought, and twelve-string acoustics; solid body electric guitars and basses; amplifiers; banjos, mandolins, and ukuleles. Considering the amount of instruments available, the Crestline trademark was probably used on guitars built by one of the bigger Japanese guitar producers and rebranded for the U.S. market. One model reviewed at a vintage guitar show was based on Gibson's Les Paul design, and had Grover tuners, two Japanese covered humbuckers, and decent wood.

Do you have any information about a guitar brand called Playsound? I have a guitar on eBay at the moment believed to be 60s/70s. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/60s-early70s-Telecaster-Style-Guitar-Playsound-/180536230542?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item2a08cc428e

Used to be sunburst yellow but needed full refurb so I painted it in retro orange!
