1981 Thunder I *PROJECT* (UK)

Post by DuoFuzz on Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:40 am

MATSUMOKU Electric Guitar Project Westone Thunder Japan - 5 Current Bid.

There is a lot of work in this one, but I reckon someone could make a decent guitar out of this.

It was originally a non-active model that's been modified with an aftermarket active circuit. It has a dodgy looking re-finish and some extra switches but it still has all of it's brass parts and it appears to have its original pickups!

It could be a cheap way into Thunder 1 ownership with some elbow grease.

I can't believe the abuse these Thunders get, but they still last, it's proof of how good they are..

There was plenty of interest in this one, 19 bids and it still only went for 67. (Although there is a lot of work ahead for the buyer to get it back to anything near factory looking.)
