We like pictures.....


Welcome, and first off, does it have both necks? Secondly, you're in the UK, yes? If so, that's an odd bird to have picked up on that side of the Atlantic as Electras weren't marketed outside the continental US; good score!

You will find this Bass a pleasure to play with either neck installed and it is simple and easy to switch between the necks. Congrats on a great score as they are not often seen anymore with both necks.

Hi and thanks to everyone for your replies, I have looked at the link to ebay and doing a bit of research my self i think my westone is older than this one which is 1986, i think mine was made in 1984, I also noticed that mine has different pick-ups to the one on ebay. I am trying to get some photos uploaded so you guys can give your opinions and help me out

Cheers guys for all your help

If I were going to sell mine I would start at $2000.  They are extremely rare, and somebody out their collects bass guitars and they would have a one of a kind bass like this.
