I got no dog in this fight, but I think there are those that flip guitars and use whatever selling methods need as their income comes from flipping them. This guy got called out - so be it. I could care less if he says he is "selling cause the wife says so" but I am much more concerned with the photo Westbone posted of the damaged headstock. That needs to be posted in HIS new listing. Or any ones for that matter - good catch West. The guitar is great, but flawed, and not near worth the original asking price.

Now that a flaw has been revealed - hopefully it will be relisted fairly

I make no pretense to making a profit on any guitar I sell
and you claim
my pictures were Blurred which we both know is a blatant Lie but thats your choice to do that I DARE you to show the pictures and yes the switch tip was missing however just after I sourced a tip and installed it
why don't you ask the folks who have bought instruments from me and that is mostly Matsumoku instruments you will not find a SINGLE complaint about any instrument I have ever sold take for instance the x390cb I bought it for £500+ I bought a Mint condition case for £110 I Had the headstock professorially repaired at a cost of £150 I had a full pro set up by Bopcat guitars £60 and that is why I charge the price I do because I outlay
the Lefthand thunder II was in shop new mint condition
the flaming is in my honest opinion churlish as I responded to a request for a x390
I do have a intimate knowledge of matsumoku instruments because I have probably owned over 300 over the past 18 months I am Not a shop I do trade and make no bones about it I want the best quality for myself so will continually trade until i get them I spend a fortune on fixing instruments ie today I have just paid £45 for a 3 way mini toggle (Original) switch for a 1981 Thunder 1A to be fitted by Johns Audio Visual here in Boston Lincs PLEASE feel free to check for those who think I scam..... I bought the Guitar for £160 I wil no doubt sell for between £150 - £170 so will not see a profit (its called market value)
I would guess in reality the people making fun of me are either bored with their position in life or long to be revered because they think they are absolute experts in the field of Westone and dont require further input or others to have a honest part in a small and limited clubhouse
I would have been happy to be a part of the westone forum and shared my limited experience with others along with helping to source parts from sources (not just from me) but from other independents (who are not just mates) but like me really do care about instruments
the X390 I bought had not been repaired prior to me buying it and did not come in a westone case let alone a Mint condition one
IF the folks here slating me REALLY cared about the QUALITY of the instruments they keep banging on about Rather than just claiming to own or wanting to or having owned then I would have thought they would have been happy to have someone in the group who would go to great lengths to bring Instruments Back to their Former Glory
would you have me repair and renovate for FREE???? do you do gigs for free???? NO? well neither do I
I AM A TRUE MATSUMOKU ENTHUSIAST

I too have no dog in this fight, but you're still missing some salient points and complaints Kenn. Go back and read what is pissing people off here. Everything from ignoring posting rules to apparent misrepresentation.

You still do not seem to be listening. One person can be dismissed as a flamer, but so many people cannot be wrong.

Kenn

If you are genuinely interested in the best Matsumoku guitars then I will be happy to sell you some.

I have 2 x Rainbow 2's at £1000 each. Call it £2000 if you take the two.

I have Rainbow 1 version 2 at £950

I have 3 x Vantage Ghost at £350 each (Thes are the versions where you can actually see a ghost if you view the rear of the headstock using black light. Funny thing is, I didn't know about it till me and my old mate, Ken Noble, got together for some Sushi and chips, in Tokyo and he told me about it. Well, Begorra !! - You could have hit me with a potato!!

I have 6 x Westbury Standard at £350 each (all nicer than the one you are trying to sell fo £350). Take them all and call it £2100

I have Aria Pro PE 800 at £800
PE 500 at £500
LS 500 at £500
LC 500 at £500
YS 400 at £400
YS 500 at £500
If I had a YS 600 it would be £600 (Can you see a little pattern developing?)

I have many more but I am bored now. I will have others that you will be interested in. The price to you will be market value x 2.

Hoax

Kenn - You didn't just kiss the Blarney Stone - You bought it a bunch of flowers, took it to the cinema, shagged it , married it, had 14 kids and 77 grandkids and then renewed your vows after a lovely candle lit meal at Harry Ramsdens.

If truth be told, as you know, I am also a free marketeer but, it is one thing being outside the tent and pissing in. When you get into the tent and keep on pissing, then no pigeon English plee will spare you from my opinion!! You probably also know that my opinion is one of the few things that I am happy to share - whether requested or not.

Kenn, you're making claims that you repair/restore/renew without backing up those claims; they may be verifiable but I think you'll find that no-one is going to bother following up on your references/referees, simply because of the impression you made first up.

I would suggest that if you're serious about being a genuine part of this forum then you move on and share some of your knowledge, rather than make matters worse by trying to justify your prices; if that's what you're charging, that's what you're charging... go for it, but don't expect anyone in here who is a bona fide enthusiast to be happy about it!!

What's more, this particular argument is getting old and tired and is about to have its legs cut off...

Let it go, fellas... everyone's had a whinge and a moan; let's move on...

If Kenn's a straight shooter, we'll know soon enough...

I am prepared to let this go and I hope others will too I apologise if I broke rules unknowingly
I also apologise for posting in areas I should not have
However I feel it was wrong of the person who first asked for pictures to post then never posted them and then ridiculed me when they knew the truth
that the end of it
If anyone is looking for parts I will do my best to source and help
I am not a bad person. and yes I do make money from the sale of guitars. This funds projects
Thank you

Westbone wrote:He sent me some photos of the x390. 3 in all.

Not at all clear and one was the back of a l/h Thunder II

I'm not going to upload them here, they're too big anyway.

Hard to tell the condition from them and not much mention of it neither. I had noticed the switch tip had gone walkies already.

Best just left alone.

The original photos are on ebay anyway.

You sent me the pictures Ken.

1 was of a l/h Thunder II from the back, the other 2 were not all that good anyway.

If you call the above quote ridicule, what can you I say???
