Hello Andy and all,

Another newbie checking in. Just found this forum recently - it's nice to know that there are other Sid Poole Westones out there being loved and cherished. I can never remember the model name of the one that I have but it's the HSS version with an Ash body.

I've had for a few years now but only just put some Suhr pickups in it. The originals, which I think were Gotoh, were no great shakes. They were a bit dark and dull for me. I also replaced the 5-way with a Strat version and shielded the cavity with copper foil. It picks up less hum now than my Strat Plus that has Lace sensors in it.

A great guitar. I hope you enjoy your's as much.

All the best.

Ian.
