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:

with a name like Pantera, automobile metaphors obviously come to mind.....

so, i look at my 300CR and i see Race Car

and i look at that 250 with it's smooth elegant lines, sleek black finish with bright chrome, minimal appointments (only on the outside of course) and i see Limousine.

there is much elegance and beauty in the simplicity

anything but "Dull"!

You're right, it does look a little elegant. Like a hot rod Lincoln or something with that chrome Bendmaster on black. I'll be interested to feel the neck on this thing, although it doesn't have that cool contoured head. And I wonder what the humbuggy is? Looks to be original, I don't know. The poles are screwed way low on the high strings if you look at the pics, weird. Oh well, if something's wrong, I can replace the pup. Maybe even make it active, yeah, I'll through an EMG in there! Cool

Laughing Just kidding, wanted to get yer dander up! Mad

One thing I hope... that I DON'T get the itch for a 390 or 350 too badly!

Should be interesting to see where this leads.

If that 250 was on this side I would have bid on it also, nice guitar. The pup looks like a MMK45 Smile

I'm scared I'll really like it. And a guitar's neck is what really sells me. So if this 250's neck is really feely good, I'm in trouble deep as far as the itch is concerned. Although I remember someone saying the necks are a little different from the low end to the high end?

This'll be my 10th or 11th guitar I think, it's getting bad enough already.

I never played a 250 or 275, so I'm not sure how they compare to the others. The 300 & 390 have a similar feel to each other, maybe a bit thinner on my 390, and my 350's are a bit thinker than the 390.

I'm keen to update the pix on the website. Dunno if that one has the original pup or not (covered)? But the description cites a Magnaflux. And this model's referred to as the Special.

I can't get the itch for a 350 or 390. I never see them at anything but exorbitant prices.

If you've played a 300 you have basically played a 275 then. The x350 / x390 similarities extend in the same manner to the bolt on models.

Fuji to Braeburn to Pink Lady to HoneyCrisp if you follow me...

Congratulations Chad! I'm glad I made a point of forgetting about that one. Wink

The 300 does have the extra layer of paint on the neck though - and we know they put a lotta paint on Westones. That being said, I have no interset in a 275, but the 250 in it's very basic setup seems cool. I was not in on the bids, nor will I be on any until after Oct (getting locked in..I mean married). But if I see one after oct, I will be in on the bids.

Can't wait to see the pics and hear the review eh

There aren't enough of them left out there, I don't think. Never gonna happen for me, but I'm okay with that.

Yep... me too! I have the 300, and that'll do me, even thought the 350 and 390 are apparently quite different beasts. Besides, I buy 'em to play em and I've got far too bloody many already; some that are even in a different country!

However, if a white Rainbow turns up, or a white APII PE, I may have to rethink the issue... Laughing

Congratulations Sarc! I remember three years ago when we got married, same thing, super scrimping and we were both working an extra job to save up some cash! Ah, good times. They almost killed me.

Sarc, I can't tell if you really don't understand what I meant, so I'll explain! No sarcasm towards HER my friend, but towards YOU! Laughing People sarcastically ask the same thing to my lovely Wife, "how were you lucky enough to win him"? As if she got the short end of the stick, because she did! Laughing It's good to marry up. Cool

And no pics yet, she still ain't arrived! Mad
