Strange if true

Post by westcoaster on Thu Oct 31, 2013 1:49 pm

Manufacturer refurbished ?
Defretted by westone themselves -really?
If so it must have cost more than the original purchase price in shipping costs alone to get it shipped to Japan and back.

Unless of course anyone knows differently.

Under the Condition section he says the work was done by a "manufacturer-approved vendor". But in the main description he says, "turned to fretless by westone them self" (sic)

Either a lot of bovine excreta or a seriously misinformed and clueless seller.

No reply to my question about who did the de-fret.  Silence speaks volumes.

And heres the answer:

not sure on who exactly but was sent to westone to be de fretted so one of there employees and not sure when but a while back probs 10 years ago +

I think this hits the right right balance of BS and evasiveness.

I remember back in the day there were at least 5 Westone shops in my street.

They were all filled with little Japanese guys who would sit there all day pulling frets out of bass guitars.

I didn't understand it at the time but it is all clear now.

I can vouch for the guy. He is telling the truth.

That's the beauty of eBay - it regularly shows you things that you wouldn't believe could be true in a million years... Wink
