Cant say I've ever seen one of these before, saw plenty of the non-japanese mockingbird copies and I suspect that to be a direct BC Rich Warlock copy from China.

A cheap Chinese copy of something.
Nothing to do with Westone, they just 'borrowed' the logo in the hope of ripping people off.

Not the nicest welcome ever extended to a new comer and not typical of our membership.

Gotta agree with this, lads; lighten up a little, eh; a genuine inquiry deserves a little more than "that's crap. move on!"

Now, I know that you're all just being tongue in cheek and aren't being quite as offhand as it would seem, but just because WE know that the Rich knock-offs being marketed as Westone aren't representative of the guitars made by Matsumoku and SLM, doesn't mean everyone else does, now does it?!

My apologies to you huesmith. You have the misfortune of having a guitar with a body style I have never cottoned to... and generally speaking I am a fan of B.C. Rich offerings.

Please do not take offense at my comment. Stick around awhile and you will quickly realize I am somewhat the class clown 'round these pages.

A sincere welcome to you. Smile

Yeah fair do's. welcome aboard huesmith !
stick around a while and enjoy this remarkable forum, there isnt another like it on the tinterwebz.

Your guitar may not be true Westone, but it may play lovely and you may well like it to bits, and thats wonderful, I myself have a cheap piece of junk plywood strat, and I love it more than any of my other guitars.......yes I know this may be sacrilige to these other guys, but thats life eh!

Yeah, my apologies to you huesmith.
I was trying to be cute and the remarks were directed more towards the membership than you personally. On reflection they were not appropriate.

I extend you a proper welcome, and please hang around and learn about these amazing Mats-made guitars and why we're so potty about them.

So, what do you, the owner, think of it?

How did you acquire it? For what price?

Is there a good story behind this one?
