Pantera X250?

Post by The Chad on Wed May 09, 2012 9:17 am

Hadn't seen one of these for sale until this one.

Pantera X250

I like it a lot. So simple. I'll bid on it I think.

Uh oh, may have some competition Chad. I've always loved the simplicity of the 1 pickup axe too, this one looks super cool. I'll stay out of ya'lls way even though she is quite puuuuurdy.

I know right, it's great around here! I am bidding, yes.

The behind the nut locks were removed and covered however, that stinks.

Oh well, this will still be a good guitar for rock/metal which is what I'll use her for!

That's REALLY cool! It's like an X-275 neck and body with the DBK paint and a single slanted humbucker. VERY '80s!!!

I know, I'm really digging this thing. It'll be my first Pantera!

Wierd, but it's the first time I've been a little giddy about a guitar in a while. :heart:

If I don't win it I may cry.

Just kidding. Laughing

Only thing I wish it had is the contoured beveled edge headstock, like a lot of other Pantera's have. This headstock is flat/sharp edged.

This will be a gigging guitar. How fun.

I think you will love the body shape - In my opinion, its the best strat based body design of all the copies companies have made ( only made better on the 390 & 350) - but then once you get the first pantera and realize that, you get that itch to get the 390 and 350 - so good luck Smile

P.S. corsair was happy in getting his 300 and did not get the itch to move up. So it is possible to avoid the itch, but it is rare indeed.

P.S.S. corsair should get the itch - he doesn't know what he is missing - the 390 and 350 are sooooo different than the 300 IMO, and while pricey...they are worth it

Damn things are growing on me...
The only thing saving me from total bankruptcy is that most have pointy heads. Not a fan of those at all. (Gotta find some excuse and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.) Neutral

I'm not a pointy fan either - but I am a Rabin fan, so the 300 i got was just because I wanted a 390 like he had and I couldnt fint one. Once I had the 390 I learned about the 350 and had to get that. I turned the 300 into a 12 string cause the 300 was really just an average guitar. I Imagine the 250 and 275 are no better than the 300 just different configs.

But I am with you - i got no interest in any pointy unless it is a 390 or a Rabin Sig. No offense to the corsairs, challengers, etc westones that have the pointy. Smile

Correction:
I do think the 250 is cool cause ya never see them - if it only had the 300 neck (black and contoured)

Thanks guys! cheers I'm excited over this Dull Black single pup single knob geetar. And yes sir John, I'll strip, document, and thoroughly describe it for posterity's sake.

My first Pantera. Since I couldn't afford a 390 or 350, I thought I'd go in the complete opposite direction. Laughing

What a Face :heart:
