westone concord basses: where are they?

Post by stuyvo on Sun Aug 03, 2008 6:37 am

A friend of mine recently asked to purchase my westone concord II bass... I agreed on one condition (that its more of a loan of the bass than a sale) he didnt end up taking it... tho that made me rather happy Very Happy

but it got me to thinking, I own three westone basses (a thunder, a spectrum ST and the concord II) and though iv seen the other two pop up from time to time appart from mine iv NEVER seen a concord bass of any type for sale other than when I bought mine (and as many of you do im always searching/ebaying).

does anyone else have one? or have you seen any? are there not many around or whats the deal? its got me kinda confused.



I recognise some of the posters from other forums Razz due to recent online harassment im posting under a new screen name Very Happy

Hello Stuyvo and Welcome! Smile

I've seen a couple of the Concord basses go on eBay but not many, I'm not sure why they don't come up very often though.

I restored one last year for David from Westone.Info. It was in a pretty bad way when I started it but it came out quite nice in the end; David was pleased with it anyway!
Very Happy

Somebody here will be bound to shed some light onto why you don't see many of them up for sale.

Hi stuyvo!

Funnily enough, the guy who I bought my Thunder 1A from (eBay user name "macpie-music") ....



...had an identical, black Concord bass to yours for sale (although I thought that model was the Concord 1 :?: ) a few months ago. It was a real corker too - immaculate! I got all nostalgiac seeing it, as the first bass that I ever played (it belonged to a friend) was a natural wood Concord 1 Wink .

One possible reason why you don't see as many around could be the shorter scale length. That was the reason that my first bass was a Thunder 1A and not a Concord - I wanted to get used to a "standard" 34" scale Neutral . Still for anyone with smaller hands, or anyone who isn't bothered by a tiny variation in scale length, the Concord series are a great quality budget bass.

It would be nice to see a few more here, you're right Wink !
