I missed the extra costs.

Just thought it could have been something for someone though I know theyre not coming to often and the last ones that has been for sale on ebay has been quite expensive at the end.

I would really like to have this guitar (even when not original) though I think this is one of the nicest looking guitars ever but now the economics to bad. 

Here in Sweden you never see them! Have nerver ever seen a Prestige for sale here. Sad

Buyers would factor the extras in when bidding, I guess, but that's quite a chunk! If it came up at the right price, elsewhere, I'd be interested if I'd got the cash.. 

They are beautiful guitars, though!

Some lovely guitars there.

Beware though, if you bid online and win you would pay an extra 3% commission. So, by my reckoning, a £100 winning bid will cost £121 plus vat of 20% making a total of  £145.20. So almost half as much again. You still have to go and pickup promptly.

I'll be down at this auction, Thursday 19th. as I'm  in Keynsham at that time, 16 miles up  the road.

Not necessary after the Prestige, all depends on the price and condition????
Some of the other stuff has my attention also.

So if anyone is interested? let me know. I could/would send on.

That Roadstar II would look good in my rail, shame the gas tank is running on vapour, shouldnt be too expensive either.

Here's a bit of the auction action.

The Prestige sold for £240+ £51.84
The final price works out at VAT + 18% of the VAT, not the final hammer price. A total of 26.1% of the hammer price.

By the way it has a '57 classic at the bridge and a PAF at the neck. All PEQ controls are removed.

Nice going Westbone.. Smile  that looks great, and I bet those pickups sound great in it as well.

Just regarding the auction, where all the guitars in pretty good nick?...they looked it on the website. And it seems a well run auction too....might have to take a trip down there next time they hold one Cool

No there's some bridge parts missing on that and it was pretty bashed up.

Got something else instead, not at that auction....Smile

That's 3 or 4 of the 350s, makes you wonder how many, perhaps most were in the UK.

Nice score on the prestige Westbone even with all the on costs.

Didn't realise they were just in Corsham.

I'll comfort myself with the thought that Westbone will snaffle anything worth having Very Happy
