westone les paul?

Post by xbarnesx on Wed Jul 07, 2010 3:23 am

hi there
long time prestige 250 owner first time poster
anyone got any ideas on this?

the logo looks mighty familiar but all the les paul copies on westone.info have the name rather than than the logo
reckon someones added a decal?

It's a cheap Chinese knock-off. Unfortunately the logo is likely accurate, as a company has been producing cheap guitars under the Westone name for a while now.

The seller says it's 2 years old? The wear and tear on this thing looks more like 20 years!
Yeah, we've talked about these guitars in here before.
Rubbish materials.
Non-existent quality.
Terrible abuse of a once proud branding. Evil or Very Mad

And there's yet another European "Westone" distributor out there too http://www.westone-guitars.com/en/electric-guitars.html. They seem to be a little bit better built, but they're all the usual American classic design clones. None of the original designs offered. Rolling Eyes
