Wanted - Paduak II

Post by WonderCouncil on Tue Oct 09, 2012 11:57 pm

Well I guess it's my turn to ask for one of these things Laughing I guess I somehow missed the Paduak I that was on eBay back in April.

I'd prefer to find the two pickup version though. Condition isn't too big of an issue as I'm going to be using it as a player and not a collectable. So long as the neck is straight, frets still have some life and it can hold tune, then I'm pretty happy.

I'd be up for working out a possible trade or trade+cash if that fits your fancy. I have a few Fenders and lots of random parts/hardware/pickups and what not.

I know I'm a new member here so I'm not expecting too much although I do have rapport on other forums. I'd be happy just to be pointed in the right direction. I do check eBay quite frequently as well as searching the vast listings on Craig's List.

Out of curiosity does anyone know production numbers on this particular model? I seem to recall seeing the quite frequently on eBay a number of years ago. Maybe I'm mistaken.

The odds aren't great that anyone in here's gonna trade out of one of these; they are reasonably uncommon, at least the Paddy II seems to be. I think I've seen about 4 Is and 1 II on eBay since I've been actively searching, which is about 7 years now.

Good luck with the search - there's a Leader on CL atm... Padauk without the Padauk...

Thanks for the heads up on that, pretty nice looking guitar. I really do dig that body shape, same with the Concords.

I did kind of figure the Paduak II would be something of a challenge to find. I would settle for the single pickup version though I suppose. Can always get the "I" and just keep on the hunt for the "II".

It is a little disheartening knowing you've been searching and only have come across 1 in seven years though. Laughing

I'm rather mad at myself for missing two Giannini Craviola solid body electrics on eBay a few months ago. That's another odd/rare guitar I've been lusting after for some time.

Oh well, thanks again!

Keep your eyes open and do "for sale" google searches and dig into the search results. Good luck. By all means strike when you see one.

Hello folks - especially hello to Polly, as I've not been here for ages!

Thinking of getting rid of my Paddy-1, especially as they seem to be going for good money these days!

It's all original (fingerboard a bit grubby) but good frets etc!

Alas - I have a Rickenbacker 4004 to fund....as well as the missus having a policy of "one guitar in, one out"!! She's probably right No

Welcome back thundauak-1.
Sorry to inform you that Polly left the Forum some time ago to pursue other endeavours. We all miss her, but the nut house is now in the capable hands of Corsair, who does in fact like pink guitars, so all is not lost. :queen:

And WonderCouncil, hey, who says miracles don't happen? Razz

OK - I have a pink shirt, a pink credit card (on the wife's account - she chose pink for hers, so I had to have pink!!) and a blue and pink wallet that I bought on Ebay (it looked blue and yellow in the picture!!!! Honest.........

I guess I must have been the only one here in the Netherlands that had a Paduak II. After it had been <LIFESTYLE> stolen </LIFESTYLE>I have been on the lookout ever-since. I'm a child of the eighties as a guitarplayer and lived in a squat at the time. There was a crisis going on. I was poor. The only picture I have of it shows only part of the actual guitar and here I am not playing it but am instead playing the Ibanez bass of the bassplayer. We swapped guitar and bass in the band from time to time. But the guitar was mine! And I was even as foolish as to not even write down the sn number before it got stolen! pale I guess I'll never ever retrieve another but am taking sort of revenge by scoring other Westones. Still miss it! Anyway the picture was stored in a too humid place and has been damaged. In retrospect, a lot of people do not realise how easy and cheap making photographs is nowadays in contrast with the reality back then, and yeah my camera equipment became stolen too + the pictures that were in it... Bastard that stole 'm probably destroyed both. Sweet memories...

Oh, forgot to mention the backstrap pin on my Westone Paduak II became loose! The Maple used for the body must have been soft, I used toothpicks to reinstall it!

Nope - the body was ash, with a padauk top (note the correct spelling of "Padauk" - a nice red timber!)! too soft in my opinion - I damaged the neck pocket on my first Paduak-1, (which is why it converted into a bass!)

Still thinking of selling my current Paduak-1, once I've tidied it up a bit.

Very cool but sad story jim. I've been fortunate in that the only gear I've ever had lifted were effects pedals. Although a few of them held immense sentimental value. I've taken to signing inside the bottom plate on all my pedals now.

I know I had said I was interested in thunduak-1's Padauk 1. But if it's something you'd like jim by all means call dibs on it Smile

I've had my eye on a few Concord 1's recently. I'm a big Fender nut, specifically their short scales. Only recently found out Westone had a short scale model as well. I just seem to get along with them better then longer scales.

I'm aiming that to be my next guitar purchase though. Right after I unload a bunch of my gear and unfinished projects.

thunduak-1, do you have any more pictures of that Padauk bass of yours. Looks killer from you profile picture. I'd love to see more, that's got to get some attention when you play it.

Thanks mate, really appreciate your generosity but Im only interested in a Paduak II! It had a lovely deep red colour on the front. If I had a Paduak one It is likely through it Idd be still longing for what I was used to, the Paduak II, and by playing the one be reminded of the other disappearing, missing it. They are not and do not sound the same! But hey, nice gesture!

I think Thunduak sold the Bass. I at least remember he had it up on ebay long ago. But yeah pics are always nice eh. Smile

Cheers, jim

Another option is that you could customise a P1 to make your own P2... I did (before I knew P2s existed Embarassed). Here's a pic if useful. PM me if keen and I'll send details of the UK guy who did it, he'll accept gtrs by post/courier straight from the seller.
