How much did it go for? I clicked on the link, but couldn't read the language. Thanks

I've no idea, marktplaats is not an auctionsite. My guess is that someone made an offer he couldn't resist. My gutt-feeling tells me that he got at least something like 250 euros.

re-listed

things get stranger & even stranger...

This is a music-shop, not a bad one, but it seems they bought it, a trade-in perhaps?

Anyway that's quite a bit to ask for a twenty-something year old Westone... even if it includes the original case.

Hiya Hans, Smile

Does it state in the advert that part of the locking nut is missing?
scratch

It's very pretty but I have to agree, they are asking a lot of money for it?

True, but Kahler bits are quite readily available from Kahler. And I think that's probably a realistic retail price - £300-odd - for a blindingly good guitar! What else can you get in that league for that money?! Very Happy

The last couple of blue 390s I've seen on Ebay went for between £600 - £700 , so the asking price isn't high - or at least it would be a good price if it had a Kahler. It doesn't- this one has a Bendmaster Deluxe trem.

Dead right, badger; the bridge is indeed a Bendmaster but the locking clamps that are there don't look like anything I've seen on a Bendmaster; any ideas? Thanks for the correction, I'll have a closer look at ALL the pix next time I make all-encompassing statements like that, eh! Very Happy

I've sent them a couple emails with no response.

I found a free translation site online so I could read what they were saying, and sent them one in Dutch.

I think that it may be like what Craigslist is here in the US, where they want to deal with mainly locals only in person.

It is a beautiful guitar.

Hi Crambone,

I gave them a call this morning, sorry to say, but it's allready sold. They removed the listing, and you're right about the Craigslist comparison. Next time you can always contact me, I'll try to help out.

Hummel, you should have bought it. This price was a steal.

Have you ever seen an X-390CB (or PW for that matter) with a Bendmaster Deluxe on it?

While this would not have cost as much new as the regular X-390CB with a Kahler Pro tremolo and as such was not as desirable when new. However, it is even more rare with a Bendmaster. It may be unique or nearly so. I've collected these things for years and have NEVER seen one like it.

I tried to buy it but he did not return my email either.

Yep, probably I should have, if not for me (the bass is my main instrument) then perhaps for fellow forum mebers...On the other hand I'm focussing right now on another Westone rarity...there's only so much one can do when time lacks.

Anyway, I'm always prepared to help out members of this forum if neccesary, please don't hesitate and send me a PM if I can be of asistance.

Thanks Hummel for your kind offer of assistance.

I was thinking that originally it came with the Kahler, and later someone changed the kahler for the Bendmaster. Maybe at some time someone had a couple guitars, and swapped parts to keep the Kahler? In the end it didn't matter which one it had, it's still gone. Hopefully it's found a good home now.

I know this one's kinda old news now, but I wanted to say that Colt933 was right about it being rare with the bendmaster. I thought that someone had just switched the tremelo units out. It's not just that easy, to do that they would have to route out the back of the guitar for the bendmaster deluxe's springs. It would have come from the factory that way. I guess people could special order guitars with options not listed on the catalogs.

Yeah, the blue paint was visible down inside the counter-sunk edge of the tremolo cavity cover. The Bendmaster Deluxe was factory on that guitar. Rare indeed.
