Yeah; they're marketed through Germany and made in Asia somewhere I presume. Not Westones as we understand them but slavish BC Rich copies...

Yep, spawn-of-BC Rich, leave well alone.

Unfortunately there's nothing to prevent the current owners of the Westone brand-name using it on these modern cheap guitars. Barry puts it well... no comparison No
