Holy Canada Goose droppings!! Unbelievable!
Looks like the selector switch was swapped out for a Gibson but hey, who cares for this price?
Amazing.

Sick price. I've never seen one cheaper than that. Is this some kind of record? Laughing The few odd thousand Scots-derived genes in me are desperate to know.

Nup it's cheap but not a record i remember seeing this Concord bass that went for 7.16 LINK

although it's a bit of a banger it's gotta be a record!

but i suppose the Spectrum wins when you add the postage on top

Same guitar for a nice profit? or coincidence that they both have a Gibson type switch?

Hi All

Just joined the site as I have just bought my first Westone, and guess what it is the 15.00 ebay Spectrum!! although i wasn't the one that got it for 15.00. I bought it from that guy, still got a good deal though.

Can't wait for my first Westone, hope they are as good as everyone says!! Look forward to looking round the forum.#

Welcome Andy and nice looking guitar, that switch plate & tip has to go though!!

Westones are great as I'm sure you'll soon discover.....but they can be addictive too and before long you'll be drooling over them when they come up on ebay

enjoy!

Correct - The switch plate won't last long!!

Post by Harper1510 on Wed Apr 28, 2010 4:17 pm

Hi, your right, the Gibson plate and tip look so wrong, once I have the guitar in my hands I will get it sorted and post some pics of it hopefully back to it's former glory.

Anything I need to know about Westones, potential problems things to look out for etc?

Andy

PS, It feels like xmas eve!

A good place to start would be to read this

Westone Development History

it's a post from Tom Presley a man who had a part in the design and manufacture of Westone guitars

The gasworks is not my sort of place either, I was just helping out a metal band on bass for a few gigs. I still gig though, the Spectrum will hopefully be getting it's first outing next week, bit of rock and blues is always a good test!!

Hi Andy and welcome to the site.

I don't know if you are aware of the initiation ceremony for new members? If you have just bought a Spectrum with it's original Switchmaster knobs, it is considered good manners to remove them and send them to the first person who asks.... so that'll be me then Wink

Nah, seriously that was a helluva bargain. The Spectrum may have been at the lower end of Westone's range but it's a brilliant guitar. I've got a two and a Spectrum bass, so totally unbiased opinion of course. Built like a bunker and the best neck ever (and that includes guitars costing 00s more). You'll soon be watching ebay for another...

What he said!! Welcome Andy Smile
4 of my 6 Westones are Spec's and they're addictive! They're still among my fav's to play, and so comfortable to hang around yer neck, um, well except for the GT which is heavy bugger! Twisted Evil
