For the love of god....

Post by corsair on Fri Aug 13, 2010 1:59 pm

Noooooooo...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/80s-Westone-Raider-Flamin-body-Ibanez-V2-pickup-/270621592000?pt=UK_Guitar_Accessories

..I've got the pix here 'cause I asked for them and it's just the body - no neck - which has a lovely flame job paintwork and as he says a non-OEM p'up...

it's just awful....

Does it balance things up a bit if this red Thunder has been restored a bit? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Westone-Thunder-1_W0QQitemZ230509261461QQcategoryZ2384QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4340.m263QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DDLSL%252BSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BIEW%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D260644434644%252B260644434644%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D6427268682267838946

That's my guitar Mr Twit and it would have been junked if I had not rescued it from a previous owner !! Sounds and plays a treat. Want to liberate the moths from your wallet and buy it?

Props to you for rescuing it. But sadly I want an active Thunder 1A.

I don't think AT was being disrespectful, Hoax - just making an observation! And indeed; good on ya for rescuing it; well done! Have you got the OEM bridge p'up or has that gone for good?

Yes, I thought the nicely restored Thunder would cheer Corsair up a bit. I hedged my language a bit in case there was something about the guitar I hadn't noticed, non original this or modified that. Apologies if there was any offence.

No offense taken. I hedged my language just in case any offense was intended!

The guitar has a gold plated bridge which is a great match for the original. The pickup was dead in one coil so has now become a MMK/45 Dimarzio zebra stripe hybrid on my latest Westbury.

Get buying A.T - If not mine, anyone - There are so many coming on to the market now there is always a great choice.

I haven't seen so many Thunders available in such a short time. So, yeah, move it! I'm sparking up the flame thrower!
