Hi there... New guy with a question. Serial number = year of make?

Post by bactuz on Sat Mar 13, 2010 7:15 pm

Hi there fellow Westone-heads Smile

I just recently discovered this forum and have a question for starters.

My Westone Pantera X-275 has serial number 6080373... What model is this then? Year of make I think of... Any way to figure that out?

I bought the guitar new back in the 80'ies and played it for a few years, then it became more of a "thing on the wall"...
So now I thought I should bring it up to speed again and this forum might help me along the way.

Thanks in advance guys!

Maybe I upload some pix some day in the members section Smile

Hello bactuz and welcome!

The serial number dates your guitar to August 1986. As to the other numbers, that is a little bit of a grey area at the minute but we are hoping that the esteemed Mr. Tom Presley may be able to enlighten us on that one in the near future!

Please do put some photos up, sooner rather than later.

Thanks Polly!

An '86 model then... Smile Nice to know. Tried to look in some old photos today and I must have bought it around 1989 some time... Not a 100% sure, but I think so...
Today I even located the case that has been at my parents addic for the last twenty years or so... Needs a wash!

I'll try to put up some photos in the fitting section Smile

Hi bluetmac and welcome.

The mothership site is still there; just type www.westone.info and all will be revealed. Having 25 Westones to I/D, date and sell will not be regarded as a problem on here, promise! You may find that you have to barricade your doors however

Shocked

Good starting point is to tell us where you're based + put some photos or links up. Others on here much more knowledgeable than I will be able to help I/D your Westones and the dates can usually be worked out from the serial numbers.

We're a friendly bunch but our beloved mod, Polly, is rightly fairly strict on the forum rules when it comes to selling guitars (you'd have signed up to these when you joined). Links to ebay etc are OK, stick your pics on here (we're all addicted to guitar porn), sorry but we don't do valuations, check completed listings on ebay and any negotiations on guitars for sale are done via PMs between members so that this doesn't become an auction site. Polly will no doubt correct me if I've missed any

I put up some pictures of my Pantera in the "Members Westones" section, but maybe I could put some in this thread too? Just for the sake of it Smile




And one of the serialnumber that started this thread in the first place...




And finally a picture of the great "head" of the Panteras. I really like the way these are shaped!
