We really need to shut up about Westone now...

Post by Iceman on Fri Jan 06, 2012 10:08 am

The inmates are running wild and it is infecting the general population now... Evil or Very Mad Suspect No

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ULTRA-RARE-1987-WESTONE-GENESIS-II-LIMITED-EDITION-GUITAR-MINT-XA1630-SLM-1922-/180790359471?pt=Guitar&hash=item2a17f1f5af

While I will grant you that this model is not seen so much lately,COME ON, NOW!! It is beginning to border on the light fantastic for some.

A painfully obvious attempt to cash in. Just sad... Crying or Very sad

I know. I'd contacted the seller to politely educate them. If they honestly wanted to sell it they needed some guidance. Perhaps the Pantera's on Ebay lately have influenced the extremely high pricing? The public doesn't know that Pantera 390's and 350's are quite a different pricing story than any other Westone, with a few exceptions including Prestige 250's and the like.

He's a good guy, he owns Electras and Westones and knows the quality of the guitars. He's dropped it to $950 and says that if it doesn't sell for that, he'll just keep it. Can't blame the man. Beautiful guitar, tip top condition to boot.

I invited him to our forum.

Nice gesture Chad, very cool of you. However, that price is still pretty FRIGGIN HIGH ! You could buy the finest of Westies for that much, except maybe the X390-350's. Very unreasonable IMHO, lets keep it real.

I agree he's a bit high, but really, when was the last time a Gen II crossed our path? I've got one and Steve777 has one...who else?? There's more X350s out there at the moment! Laughing

Seems to me when I have caught wind of one it is always over on your side of the pond John. Was it a model that was more frequently imported into Europe or something?

That's about what I paid for mine 5 years ago in New Zealand, and is probably a very good buy at that... Well done! Show us?!

I don't know, Ice; mine was bought down under, gittarsaurus is in the US and Steve is in the UK....

I do recall seeing a comment by TP saying that he liked the Genesis a lot... I do know I like mine and it was my first Westone! Very Happy



...that's it in the top right hand corner.

I believe Tom's comments came up in my post on the UBC in my first xa1530 that Damian has so gallantly repaired for me. He did call them a limited run model whatever that means in his book, which is the book that counts the most concerning Westone, in my book.

...if you follow me? Very Happy

ooops, the other right hand corner. Laughing

interesting layout on the knobs on yours, mine has all three in a straight line with the blade switch between the knobs and the bridge.

John's Genesis has had me befuddled for some time now. It is a one-off IMHO.

Or else a riddle shrouded in mystery wrapped inside an enigma. Either or, ya'know?

Remember John, friends don't let friends tip and type. No

1++ on the pics request. Lovely shade of purplish chocolate going on there! (to my eye at least)
