Wanted !!! Left handed thunder jet !!!

Post by Fragsie on Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:14 pm

Hi everyone, I know there's a slim chance of getting one but after years of fenders and gibsons I've decided to return to my first guitar love - a thunder jet !!!

I had one back in the early 80's but stupidly got it swiped at a gig in the early 90's (used it as a e flat back up)

Would love to find another one for sheer nostalgic value - can anyone help ??????

I'm sure I posted in here about this when we first got to Australia.... ahhh; here we go...

http://forum.westoneguitars.net/t2863-meanwhile-here-in-deception-bay

... I did take a crappy phone pic of it, but have long since deleted it.

It looked pretty good under the layer of filth, and was A$285... no case.
