If the phase switch has been changed I'd check it. It only works when both p/ups are selected.
I've placed a wiring diagram on the Westone info site.
These have MMK53 pups and sound f 'king great, once your used to the PEQ. series/parallel
I,ve 2 of these same colour, midnight blue. Only made them for a couple of years. Don't often see them.....BUY..... Twisted Evil

I used to have a IIa in this color. It was a good playing and sounding guitar but the active electronics were dated in my opinion. I bet this non-active II sounds great.

Hard to buy when you're seriously broke. Sad

I might have been able to "find" $100 somewhere, but $200? Plus Shipping, taxes and duty (assuming they even ship to Canada)? Dunno 'bout that. If I show up with another guitar I'm a dead man.

It is gorgeous though.
And I did, um, ask about shipping to Canada.

Help. Neutral

That is exspensive!!
Just received some new exhaust for my Harley('77 FLH) only $68 postage and was here in just over a week. A lot further to the UK from the US.

Sounds like they're trying to make a few bucks on the postage. Evil or Very Mad

It's rampant! With very few exceptions, everything I buy or look at on EvilBay is like this. It's like the old "bait and switch" tactic (illegal most places) where they suck you in with a reasonable sale price then switch you to something else at a higher price 'cuz the originally advertised item is out of stock. In this case they pile on the shipping and "handling" charges.
Example: I just picked up a NOS Danelectro gig bag for the amazing price of $9.95! The shipping and handling...Another $23.91!!! And then they had the stones to tell me that UPS would charge another $15 fee on top of that! I refused to pay it. The seller ate that charge.
Gimme strength.
