The Vester that got away

Post by shaneg on Sun Mar 23, 2014 12:05 am

I'm hoping to score a hit here with some obscure guitar knowledge! 

 Back around 1991-1993 (as close as I can get with this fading memory),
 I was just starting to get serious with my guitar love affair,
and my first love was a Vester guitar. 
She was unlike any other guitar I had, or have, ever seen.

 I put this guitar in lay away at our local music store, and delivered a lot papers trying to pay it off. ($380 at the time) 
Before I could pay it off, the paper company decided to go to larger motor routes, and I lost my job and had to let her go. 
She was sold the same week they took her out from the back room.  pale 

The body was white with a black crackle finish, white neck, white head stock with black Vester script, 
and a solid white fret board with no inlays.
Black hardware, a floyd style tremolo, and two EMG style active humbucker pickups with a Vester logo on them. 
I'm pretty sure it was a bolt on neck, and the top and bottom of the body was flat, with no sculpting that I can recall.


For years now I've searched for that guitar with no luck. I can't even find a picture of it on the internet. 
Has anyone here seen this particular guitar, know anything about them, or (Gasp!!) know where one is hidden away waiting for me and my wallet to come along and rescue it?  cheers 

I wish I could give more to go on as far as model name, but it was a long time ago, and I was too blinded by its looks to pay much attention to the writing on the head stock.

The pickups & hardware are correct, but that's about it. 

I've found a few pics of other guitars that have similar features.


Paint was like this (more white than black), and on the body only, the neck & headstock were solid white : 





The fretboard was exactly like this one:






Headstock was just like this one, but had a bigger "Vester" logo :




And finally, imagine all of those features on this guitar, with the completely flat, unsculpted body style:




It's amazing, I haven't seen this guitar in over 20 years, but I can see it in my head as though I had held it yesterday.  No
