First one of these I have seen on ebay...

The old school logo on an x300? Must be fairly uncommon as I've not seen it anywhere before.

Ive seen that before usually with the FT bridge. But looks like an aftermarket locking system on the neck unless someone knows something I don't

Looks very similar to the Kahler lock that Colt has on his x390.

Do you think the logo is common for a bolt on Pantera, Pat?

I think that is an add on. I think Colt added his but best to ask him. i do not think Westone ever sent out guitars with that saddle. I could be wrong but IMO nope

i see the serial number is 601xxxx, and is located on the headstock
and on the front, only the bird W logo
'pantera' in a tubular font and 'Westone' below it
bendmaster FT


i have a pearl white X300, 5 months later there are a few differences;
606xxxx, the serial number is on the neckplate
and the headstock has the bird logo and Westone printed on it
the body has pantera insignia and 'Pantera', on one line and no 'Westone', different font too
bendmaster deluxe

that one has a few bonks and dings, mostly not horrible. seems like a strap lock tore up the upper horn
typical little stuff - knob, switch tip, string locks
he states in the auction listing that the string lock is aftermarket add on
no case

i think maybe a bit optimistic on the price drunken

Now, I've seen those stringlocks before on Matsumoku guitars; I cannot at the moment remember where or when, but I'll keep looking....

I've also seen that font on the body somewhere....

Its also missing the wang bar collar....
