I'm not normally one to be a purist, but every time you mention stripping it Sarc, I cringe. Neutral And who needs to own three of these? That's just greedy. Let somebody else have their dream guitar, whoever you are! Smile

I only have one of them, but a second would look really nice (and original) with a nice green or blue stain Smile

My contribution to this was the question concerning the original pickup covers. I am watching this one and it is interesting but will abstain from this one. I do believe that his reserve is a bit higher and will watch to see if it sells. Good Luck to all. Arthur

I'm with you sarc Twisted Evil except as you probably know, the factory tinted the clear lacquer & sprayed the burst with a clear coat over to finish.
Mind warn would probably kick ass & rightly so I guess.

Could'nt help myself - threw a bid in there. More than I paid for my 350 and reserve is still not met. So I am currently high bidder, but won't get it. I really want this, but won't up my bid, unless a serious amount of beer is involved while I have access to the internet. And if I win, I think I'll be single the day after receiveing it Smile

Well this one is still haunting me in the back of my mind and the Westone Egas keeps whispering Go for it, Go for it. It's getting down to the wire now and I do not wish to start a bid war between friends here so if anyone has this one in mind please PM me so we can discuss it further. I want it to find a good home with a forum member that will enjoy and share it's beauty. Ain't Westone Egas a blast. Hope to hear from all as there is only 16hrs or so left. I may not reach his reserve but would like to give it a shot. thanks Arthur

Well, fine then, I placed a bid.... I hope you jackals are all happy now. Laughing

I'm thinking that the seller thinks he has more guitar than it's condition offers, to my eye at least.

26 bids, it is over a grand... and the reserve still has not been met??? Suspect

Thanks, but no thanks... No

I agree Ice that reserve at that price is unreasonable. I'm just glad my bid didn;t win or my lady woulda killed me.


Mortar = I know you are just getting into the westone thing, and wish you could take this as it is the BIGGY, but I think the price it is at right now is more than it;s worth IMO

Thanks but at that orbital range I am outa ammo. Thanks and I think we may see this one again a few more times maybe as I do not think he will reach the reserve.

I May have to refocus on the PRS guitars ( the best guitars IMO ) as these 80's Japanesse guitars are getting very high priced. time to focuse on the the early EG America guitars.

I did see that Sarc and assumed it was you. I only posted the longer one as it seems to hype things quite a bit and rings as not true as written.

And unless I am totally mistaken, i really doubt that is Damian by any stretch of one's imagination.

No that is not me old chaps.
Like I stated one's enough for me. There's alot of other guitars I'd buy before another x350ma. at these prices.

I actually opened the bidding on this one at way under the reserve just to feel it out. Man it went up quick, over a grand with 40 minutes left. Way too high reserve, maybe the seller will get lucky and get what he wants because of a bidding war, but i hope not. Its gonna be expensive!!

Ended at a little over a grand and didn't meet reserve. Lame. I think a thousand dollar reserve is plenty for as banged up as she is- i guess he doesn't really want to sell it.

I realize there is probably no single method for setting a reserve that would satisfy everone, but let's have a little bit of common sense here.

For the sake of the arguement we could assume he probably thought that guitar was worth more than either of the x390's that sold recently for $157?.00 and $1850 just in the past few days. I am sure we here bear a healthy share of any "blame" for this based on how we all hold the x350 in our opinions as one of the top models, if not THE top model. So let's just say he felt it was worth $1650. If he set the reserve at maybe 85% of that we are talking about $1400 or thereabouts, 'kay?

Starting the auction at only $500 then? That is just ridiculous. I can state fairly confidently that a $1200 bid still could not have met his reserve so I do not think I am all that far off base.

Of course he might have gotten lucky and landed his white whale at that auction too. Make no mistake, I will continue to pursue this model until I get one. I'm just not ready to abandon my good sense and self-respect doing so.
