What Westone do you lust after?

Post by fish on Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:03 pm

My beauty is winging its way over from Spain to the UK right now, in the shape of a Sunrise Sunburst Prestige that most of you know well.
No prizes on guesses who's it was, he's a good looking Spanish guy with a fetish for Thunder III's.

Problem is I still lust after a Pantera X350 Deluxe & then there's the X390 & the ............

What rocks your boat :?: by of way of Guitars I mean!

Ooooh... this is good - lets see what the local snobs are after!! Laughing Personally, a Spectrum 12 springs to mind - I know, I know; it was a custom build but it was built!!; a white Rainbow like the one I saw Spandau Ballet using, and any of the pointies would light my fires!!

You know you just missed a 350MA, and a 390CB on the 'bay, don't you?!

Yes but I thought the 390 was being bid on by the same guy I'd like to prize a 350 Deluxe off but don't think there's much of a chance of that, besides the
390 was a bit beat up. £400, seemed a good price for it?

As for the 350, yes I slipped up there, to busy arranging the purchase of the Prestige which got a little involved, but got my eye on the ball now, cyclops

A Spectrum LX bass with both necks, a Pantera X790, a blue/yellow Raider bass, a Quantum, a 5-string Pantera, a blue Spectrum MX/SX...

Do I have any money to purchase any of the above? No.

The reason I joined this forum was because of my lust for a Thunder 1A bass in black.. I found one and have been content ever since.
As for other Westones...I'd be a happy man if one of the Thunder guitars or basses with a through neck came my way. I'd also like a Spectrum GT bass. oh and a Paduak would be nice just for it's cute ugliness.

An antique brown sunburst Pretige 250, with script logo. Exchange a sunrise sunbust one.
Antique brown sunburst Session II. Exchange a natural maple one.
Anyone?

Pantera X350 - and maybe a couple of X390s that I sold and wish I hadn't.

Spectrum 12 string like Trevor Rabin's.

And the trump card that everyone seems to forget about: Session!!! Come on....you KNOW you want one!

I'm a lusty kinda guy.
No, really.
Why, when I was a younger man I used to...but...I...digress.
I love just about all of the Westone line, well maybe I'll pass on the Raiders and Dynastys, I'll leave them for John. Enjoy matey.
I love my Spectrums and the Concord and the Thunder, but I'd really like to have a Rainbow, and a Session, and maybe a Genesis just for the hell of it.

I've just been playing my Spectrum S while sipping an 18 year old scotch, so I'm a happy guy regardless.

An X-390 in any color. And Barry, fine taste in scotch. I myself drink Glenlivet 12 year aged. I find my pallet hasn't developed fully yet as I find the older scotch to be less tasty. I'm sure trying to get there though. Very Happy

Who cares what the scotch/whiskey tastes like - chase it with sundrop or mountain dew!

Always a tasty Scotch. The one I was slurping down was an 18 year old Johnny Walker Gold Label brought back me from a recent New york trip by my wife.

And colt? You bring a Mountain Dew anywhere near my Scotch and there will be blood! And what I miss Racing will finish! affraid

Back on topic...as I learn more, my lusting changes. I absolutely love the Phoenix/Spectrum body style and could really get into a Spectrum FX sporting the exquisite heelless set neck, the true UBC pickups, and the Bendmaster FT bridge, would definitely fit the bill, and of course x390/x350.

2 on ebay US right now

$400 : http://cgi.ebay.com/Westone-Rail-Headless-Bass-1985-Wht-/160539211070?pt=Guitar&hash=item2560e1f53e

$200 : http://cgi.ebay.com/CHERRY-RED-WESTONE-THE-RAIL-BASS-GUITAR-/130482495371?pt=Guitar&hash=item1e615cdf8b

Most Rails I've seen on ebay have been in the 400 plus range so the 200 one seems like a deal.
