Pantera identification

I just picked up this Pantera from Ebay last week:

The title of the add says X275 but I am pretty sure it is a X300. Can anyone confirm?
I've heard of a Pantera X300 & Pantera Pro X300. What is the difference?

Also if anyone is looking to get rid of a 390 I am looking Smile

I believe you're right, since the only known version of the X275 did not have a tone knob. And an X300 is a Pantera Pro. Pro means X300, basically. Having both is redundant.

Warrn is correct. That is an X300. The X275 was the Pantera standard, X300 Pantera Pro, X390 Pantera Deluxe. Nice grab, the X300 is a great player for hard rock and metal.

Cool thanks for looking. I figured it was a 300 as it had the tone knob. I also don't think I have seen a 275 with a black neck and black tuners.
Now maybe I can find or fabricate a truss rod cover that says X300.

Search the forum. I believe someone had a thunder truss rod cover fabricated not that long ago. That would be a great starting point for you and I'm sure they could provide you with a few pointers.

It's no biggie to get one fabricated from some kind of perspex/plastic/synthetic; all you need are the measurements of the actual TRC - and the height and spacing of the writing thereon - and the typeface used.... I'm sure someone in her will oblige will a photo or two and measurements...

Some of the plastic pieces I've had made are indistinguishable from OEM bits; I wonder if the backplates are made from the same sort of plastic as the TRC, in which case you can take the backplate down to your friendly plastics manufacturer - with your measurements and pix - and get him to make you one.
