Well at least now I've got the funding together for another one. If anyones thinking of lightening their load, or has one to move on a one in one out basis, then theres always the option of of moving one on to me. †No favours asked and a fair market price for both parties. Any 83 brass nutted T1As sitting unstrummed in cases out there? I do read pm so it would be worthwhile iof anyones interested.

would be about 230ish with postage. I would prefer to buy here than the bay as at least the guys here know what's what. Buying one for that on the bay to find it needs the same done in work again would not be good. Any old case will do for shipping.

I wouldn't let that stop you. I recently restored a battered up Thunder which was missing one brass saddle (argggh!)

I ended up using a stainless steel set from GFS because the replacement cost for brass was out of proportion to what I paid for the guitar.

They look good and there's not a lot of difference in sound. LINK

The Thunder can be a loud guitar anyway, so even if it's a bit brighter, no worries. Laughing

Hey Kev! We haven't heard from you in awhile.
What's happening?
How are your injuries, and did you ever get your replacement guitar?

All the best to you.

Injuries healed, and my old boy stepped into the breach but would only buy me a new guitar on a limited budget. So at the moment i'm playing a Fender Marauder which i picked up cheaply from Andertons. Jazzmaster 90 in the neck and a gimkmicky 'triplebucker' in the bridge. Gets some great sounds out of amplitube Fender though, all that shimmer and sparkle. Chinese Fender badged from the same factory that produced the classic vibe series. Fit and finish superb, just needs a better trem, or blocking it off really. think i got it for 240 or so.

Goood news is though i just won 500 of her majesties folding in a barclays draw, so when that comes through i'll be back in the westone fold with a cleaner Thunder than †my last one.

So all in all Karma seems to have worked its magic, one of the perps has been found and dealt with by friends of mine and the other guys skipped town. And thanks for your concern Barry

Might be worth unstickying this now, the guitar is long gone and there's every chance it was damaged badly when i took the hit anyway. If it shows up , then it shows up, but i'm resigned to losing it now. Thanks for the effort you guys put in though, it really is a great forum here.

I was considering selling my 1982 Thunder 1A, comes with case and leather strap fitted with straplocks (not the one in the photo). It has been thoroughly renovated and I put a new Gotoh GTC102 steel gold finish bridge on it as the brass one was badly pitted with a saddle missing. The new bridge is identical to the original Gotoh GTC101 with only difference being is that the original was brass. Having tried an original brass bridged 1A I would say that you would be hard pushed to hear any difference and the cosmetic look is much the same. It plays like a dream and going for the first £250.
