No defence needed, man; that was just an observation... Laughing God knows I've put enough dodgy links up in my time!!

That'd probably come up quite nicely, really and the price is about right atm.... If they're the stock p'ups then they're a little bland and character-less, but certainly not junk by any means!!

Actually, that might be an extremely rare guitar.
Looking through the catalogs, the only maple-fretboarded Westone was in 1989 on a Spectrum...and those were HSS, 22-fret guitars, reversed headstock. This is an HSH w/ 24 frets and normal headstock.
The Westone W w/o the rest of the word does appear on 1989 models, and the neck joint looks like 1989...
But there wasn't a 1989 model with an HSH configuration, according to the catalog.

This must be a transition model from 1989 to 1990, Spectrum GT Custom with some changes on the neck...

Embarassed

Looking at the catalog again, this isn't that big a deal. It is a Korean-era Corsair, from 1989. It is a WE7501FLP on this page: http://www.westone.info/cats/newhorizons/01.html

I must have looked at that page 100 times, and never realized that was a maple-fretboarded guitar underneath the blue one. I guess I figured it was some sort of surrealistic reflection...never looked close enough to see the frets.

Stupid, I know, but that's what I'm good at.
