Westone V on Ebay, looks like a nice project for someone

Post by Sollophonic on Fri Dec 16, 2011 6:38 am

Just seen this on eBay, didnt know there were V Westies

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1980s-Westone-Flying-V-Electric-Guitar-Project-needs-new-strings-bridge-/200689402182?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item2eba054146#ht_500wt_1202

Nice project for someone, but not me this time.

V s are nice but not really my style, the pointiest I'll go is an Explorer Wink

My gut tells me this is not a Westone, or at least not one of Uncle Mats. Unless an Aria 575 or Electra 2236 somehow ended up with a custome truss rod cover.

Anyone else???

Another German owned 'W' branded Chinese clone, they are CR*P!

Riff Raff, Down boy, don't be tempted, you'll regret it.

Used to have a cross Alsatian/Labrador called Riffraff, after the Rocky Horror show character. 'king big dog Smile

Only thing I like about that is the truss rod cover. Cool

Now that you mention it, the truss cover looks a little out of proportion... and the knobs are all wrong. Hmmmm... scratch
