Pantera x-275 parts needed

Post by Atle on Mon May 17, 2010 7:33 am

I am having a restoration project on my white Pantera x-275, and am in need of a Bendmaster Deluxe. I am also looking for a replacement neck for this guitar, as there are some serious damage on the existing neck (wonder what the h**k the previous owner did to this guitar...).

Hope someone here can help me with this, or point me in the right direction where to find spare parts for this guitar.....

Thanks

hm, a x300 with a bendmaster ft...ok,at least you could use the neck. but a (very) used neck for 135 USD is a bit to hot i think...

keep your eyes on ebay...bendmaster deluxe trems pop up from time to time. necks are even rarer, however you should finally get one if you are patient.

Yeah, I saw that had had a real close look at it.... However, it's got a Bendmaster FT trem and it's missing the stringlock completely so probably not of much use to you, Atle?!

Parts for any Westone are a major PITA to find; normally you just have to wait until something comes up on eBay if Spares is still closed down....(he is, I just checked!)

What parts for a BD are you after, or are you wanting the whole thing? They do come up every now and again but if you don't wanna wait then some of the lads in here have come up with alternatives, so maybe they'll pipe up now and tell us what's what in that regard....

How bad is the neck? (Obviously, a few good pix would tell the story, so if you can....)

Thanks for all the replies Yes, I am looking for the complete Bendmaster trem. The previous owner of the guitar put some terrible fixed bridge in the guitar. And that obviously have to go.... The neck is pretty bad, but usable. I can keep the one currently on the guitar, but I want to restore it back to its former glory.

And: I am also in need of a westone hard case or two.

So, ebay is the place to watch then? I remember a place on the net were one could buy westone parts, but it seem to be gone now.

What's wroung with your neck??? Snapped, wornout??
Could always replace it with an older Jackson bridge. Plenty around.

Yep, there was; the owner of the Westone.info site was doing Spares for a year or so a while back, but lack of patronage and changing circumstances led to him pulling the plug, unfortunately.

So, ebay is the place to watch then?

Yes. And Kijiji, Gumtree and any other auction site.
