this'll probably get my IP blocked BUT
my 1984 artist ar105 gets more playing time than the prestige 250
theres not a lot in it, but I love that I can get an almost perfect Mahavishnu John McLaughlin tone
sorry everyone

Banned!! Laughing Laughing

No, mate - everyone has a preference, and at least you've got a Prestige and are able to make the comparison! Many here wish they were in such a position!!

I know I'm in a very enviable posistion and the westie holds a special place in my heart as its the guitar I learnt to play on
for the record the next guitar I'm after is a 70's/early 80's Yamaha SG so I can have a sort of Japanese LP Killer collection, not that I'll have the money for the next 18 years - no one told me babies cost so much Shocked

Prestige 250's are really uncommon between Thunder Bay and Saskatoon. Wish I could get my mitts on one.... <sigh>

I recently bought a set neck 1978 Yam SBG 200 for less than $200.... the seller never played it! He was making his own amp and needed cash.

I have been looking for years, but CANNOT find a Prestige 250 locally here in the Great White.

gotta agree. The Ibanez musician bass from the late 70's early 80's is up there on my "bass guitars I'd love to own" list, it's a beauty


Too bad you live across the pond bowenjaybee, there is one for sale locally for about $500 but i think he'd go down a little. High end model like the one pictured above, those models are worth 5 bills for sure. I've almost considered buying it and selling my other Musician bass.

Sweet looking RS1000 you have there caucajun. I've got this, the stripped down body of it's brother, the RS1300.



It's yet another ill thought out project I got off Fleabay a few years ago. I found a neck for it (from an RS440) but the bridge is the big problem. It should have the PRO ROCK'R trem but they stopped making in '86 and now they're rare as rocking horse poop.

Typical of Japanese guitar makers, the trem is completely oddball and the post spacing doesn't seen to match a single damn thing on the market today. And I thought Westone hardware was a pain in the ass..... No

DAN.
