Are these e-basses true Westone ?

Post by tasos on Sun Dec 16, 2012 5:55 pm

Hello, and congratulations for the forum and website as well, many interesting things to read and see !
I am interested in learning to play the bass and looking around for an entry level instrument not too cheap though.

Lately i came across those 2 on ebay:

Sorry for not posting the links since i have not the right to do so. I instead post the item numbers
i) 380376741976
ii) 380376742442

Both basses are named : WESTONE Spencer Tribute. One is blue and the other red. Both have 4 strings.


The seller says these are westone but i searched so much in the internet and managed to find no information on these. Do you know if they are indeed westone or just fakes that use the name ?

Thank you in advance

As obi wan kenobi would say:
"these are not the basses you're looking for"
They're listed as new and are likely To be poor quality Chinese imports badged as westones, I think I'm right in saying that a German co owns the westone name now.
So yourself a favour and search for westone matsumoko, there's usually basses out there.
Good luck with your search.
