If its anything close to my Aria 2312, it will be the best hollowbody guitar you can possibly find!

I've never owned a semi hollow, although it is on the list of things to buy (not quite near the top of that list). Any one know what this guitar goes for these days?

Although this is slightly different than the Electra jazzbox (O-hole vs F-holes), if the love for the Electra is anything to go on then these are probably among the best of the best of Westones. Personally, although I'm not a guitarist, I want one just because the big fat jazzbox electrics are my favorite.

Ive got one and they are very nice, great finish and mine plays very fine. Was doing some jazzy numbers with my nephew couple of weeks ago (hes a pro) and took the session to play, couldnt get it off him so I ended up playing bass and his acoustic.
Price wise I think theyre worth a lot more (>2x) than current bid.

They are extremely good guitars for certain styles - normally fetch 400-500 in the UK. I've seena few comments from Gibson owners saying the Session is at least as good as a gibson, but at a fraction of the price.
