Lado guitars?

Post by VikingFirebeard on Sun Jan 04, 2009 2:08 pm

Does anyone know much about Lado guitars? They make a model called Earth that looks alot like the Westone Raider. Adrian (Iron Maiden) had one that caught my eye.

The company is still going, you can find them at http://www.lado-guitars.com/catalogue.htm .

They make some really exotic Tele style guitars, as well as the pointy old school 80's rock axe's they're famous for. I secretly want a pointy 80's rock refugee to do up myself (with a Kahler and a rising sun paint job!).

Back to the future!!!

Yeah, bring it on, I've got no shame. You got to have some guilty pleasures (an idea for a thread perhaps!)

I was checking out the Westone Guitars site the other night and reading through the old models, the Monark and the Dimension IV spring to mind straightaway. Rolling Eyes drunken

Hm, I haven't seen a monark on ebay since I've "discovered" westone (perhaps I was just too blind?)...somehow it would be nice to have one.

Yeah; I think David at Spares has one, and X189player on the Electra forums has one...

..about halfway down the first page. They are very uncommon - probably because they're as ugly as sin!! - and I've not seen one on the 'bay in the 4 years or so I've been looking at Matts. The Dim 4's and Dynastys turn up quite regularly...

Yep; he's a hell of a nice bloke too - I 'acquired' my Phoenix X195 through him; I'm sure he'd tell you more about what the Monark is like if you PM'ed through the site... He likes his for the ergonomics - go figure?!
