I will really miss that site, It's a real shame that all that fantastic info has gone. He obviously had his reasons for not wanting to share his knowledge with the world anymore but I guess we will never know why. confused I'm sure he will still be lurking around here to witness the aftermath.

Despite his apparent "expertise" and former dedication the man appears unbalanced for whatever reason, and we're better off not relying on him. There's certainly no point in whining or begging him, he's obviously not interested in anyone or anything else but himself; it's a control issue with this guy and I have no time to waste on his type.
Best to ignore him and carry on.

We have a knowledgeable group of members here and a wealth of posted information. Over time we'll create our own reference base, with superior pictures, better access, and under our own control.

Well. Lets start our own .info! Those of us that have the models that were listed on that site could ms paint/scan wiring diagrams to start. Though it is a shame that the left over parts are allegedly trashed.

I think unfortunately Barry's right on this... we'll just have to get it together on our own.

Have a look around in here;

http://www.guitardir.com/main.php?Context=AboutSE

.... click on Electric guitars and scroll down the left hand list to Westone; there's a lot of info there, and I'll ask the owner of the site if we can use it. He's a good bloke - a Frenchman who emigrated to New Zealand and I'm quite sure he'll be OK with it.

Otherwise, we just pull our own guitars to bits and compile any and all data on then that we can; perhaps Damian or Martin - or in fact anyone who knows how to do this - could do a circuit diagram for us??

Well I don't know turn my back for a minuet & the info site has gone belly up, sh 1 t! When I saw the site had been closed to divert traffic to the sale site, the thought did crossed my mind that the info site may not be opened again.

I see you all have been thinking about what to do, I haven't a clue how these forums/boards work. I guess adds pay for the site. Can the site be modified or are we stuck with whats on the home page?

For my two penarth, & I appreciate it may have all been discussed it at length. As we all know, there is more info tucked away on this forum than was ever on the Westone info site its just not readily accessible. Should another be launched as everyone seem to be agreed, it should be built on our forum. If a heading as in ''Members Westone's'' could be added called ''Westone Info'' or whatever, with a list of Mat's guitars as links, (tell me if I talking through the back of my head I usually do) surely members could add photos with a brief descriptions that could be edited if need be by more knowledgeable amongst us, it would take a little time for it to build but it is no more than what members already do when posting their picks or advising others.

If this was possible, additions would be posted to a set plan, perhaps anonymously to save unnecessary complication & anonymity, a front & back pick of the guitar plus headstock, bridge & p/ups in each colour, plus a brief description preferably taken from a catalogue or a pick of a catalogue page when available. Catalogue pages would come available as time went on, for my part, I have the Sid Pool catalogue, I wouldn't be surprised that between us, all the catalogue pages would be available.

Again, I have the Sid pool wiring diagram & have posted it. Its a bit hand drawn but I can soon draw it up better, should all this get going the rest will all come out of the woodwork I'm sure.

Barry's right of course & It would be nice to have a reference that had uniform sized pictures of good quality, unlike the info site.

No I don't want the Job should it be available but would be happy to scan items for it if that would help Very Happy

Because at the time Matsumoku.org was set up, I guess Thorn and the Electra admin stuck their hands up and took a little of the pressure off Neal who put Matt together. However, I do know he helped both Thorn and the others with material to get 'em started...
