Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't you looking for an FX just the other day?

I've an ST going.

Any photos of the FX? Seems a bit pricey though. Never seen one go for anything like that... Evil or Very Mad
Does it have a trem arm?

Hi yes  still looking for a ST. Black one. 
I bow to your experience on price but ive seen them going for near 1000 dollors in the USA. 
Thats if you can find one. I know i couldnt find any super strat shape guitar for anything like 375
that would be within a 1000 miles of how good the FX is. proper wood, proper craftsmanship and finishing, prop pickups.  so thats the rub. 
Anyway thats what it will take to let it go as i really want a Thunder 1A. The st is to replace 
the FX for a guitar with the sameish feel and i like the pickups. 
re picture, i did post one??? but it did'nt show. do you have email or a way i can post them on here?

its a replacement trem arm that was recommended from this site.  you can keep your westone one if that bothers you as this black one i have is perfect.

Stick it on E bay. There's also a load of ST's on there.

That's way to rich a price for the likes of me for an FX.

Can't understand why your selling such a nice one as you describe and still want another.

Anyway good luck and a photo or two wouldn't go amiss.

With respect my reasons for selling a guitar and wanting another are mine. I find your comments slightly rude. Forgive me but I believe these type of forums exist to be a friendly place to discuss related topics. Not to receive slightly tainted comments based on some sort of conspiracy as your thread intimates. I consider that a tad rude. And I think I'm right in saying that one of the conditions of posting is " don't be rude" it is no wonder I have never joined a forum before. Trawling a site to monitor every post and making sarcastic comments does not serve this community well.
Banter is cool. But there is a line I think. Questioning my reasons for buying and selling a guitar on a public forum crosses that line and will I think deter people from joining.
You owe me an apology. I hope the administrator of this site views this thread. I love Westones. I hope to own many, use them, enjoy them and pass them on to try others models and versions. Hang on to the odd one. After all People do sell guitars that are really good or we would all be playing rubbish. Kind of obvious isn't it.

For the record, I recently bought a Spectrum FX in good but slightly worn condition for £120 (and it could have been a bit less if I hadn't unwittingly got into a bidding war with another forum member) and have since invested a little time, effort and spare parts from the rest of the Spectrum fleet turning it into my regular gigging guitar.  I've also bought two Spectrum GTs in the last year for a little more (the Blueburst one) and significantly less (the Silverstone one) than £120 so you might want to consider that model if you want FX tones (though with a less good tremolo - not a problem for me I don't use, or know how to use, a tremolo).

Of course you're entitled to ask for as much as you want for your guitar but £375 would be too rich for my blood. I suppose that if it is in absolute pristine condition then it could go for that but my guitars live a hard life and unfortunately a case queen would soon lose her cherry in my hands Very Happy.

I've seen exactly one FX up for $1000 in the U.S. but IIRC the advert was based on a photo pinched from a forum member and it didn't end up selling. If you are serious about selling then eBay or maybe PRELOVED is probably the way to go. If you take the best pictures you can and are scrupulously honest about the condition of the guitar then this will enhance your chances for a sale at the desired price. If you've got the original case and/or bill of sale (I have both for my 1984 Yamaha SF1200 owned from new) then so much the better.

Thanks for the reply. Appreciated. I have owned many many guitars over the years and recorded hundreds. My experience is that price is rarely a factor. 5k special edition models have sounded terrible yet I work with a number of top sessions guys that use as first choice from their armoury what might be considered a £150 plank. Some just seem to glow whatever the price. This FX is one of those. Im not really a wangy guy either and for my unorthodox type style the left hand is compromised somewhat with the trem. And i only use it for recording. its a great recording guitar with balanced tones. That is down to wood, grain, pick up winding, luck, its defo not a monday morning guitar. Same with J200's. There are very few good recording ones, even less great recording ones.
The price is negotiable obviously. 
i recently did the rounds of dean street. tried everything. stupid price vintage stuff.  the best guitar i held all day was a Thunder 1. Miles and Miles above anything. You could see it before you picked it up. Just happened to be a westone. but it was extremely obvious. That is the type of guitar i look for. Not an ibanez £1000 quider for a bargain £300 off ebay. it might be an Avon sg{doubtful } or something.
A great guitar is rare. Price rarely comes into it. so i think an ST and a Thunder 1A will suit my needs better, if i can find good ones.

why both, well i wouldnt swap an fx for an ST would I. That is funny. Or a T1.
ST going for 75-125  T1 going for 125-150  easy equation seeing as i want 375 for my fx.
I dont mind compromising on my price for easy trade  but seriously an FX for an ST.

Sorry you're felling set upon brimy.
Reading the thread again, the point of friction appears to be a disagreement as to what your FX is worth. As we say on the front page of our web site, ultimately your guitar will be whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

We don't profess to be guitar merchants here, but we are devoted collectors and players, with a sprinkling of technicians, builders and luthiers. Collectively there is much experience and wisdom here, should you choose to partake of it. Up until now your visit here has been a positive interaction and it would be nice to have you as a regular.

But hey, you need to listen to folks when they talk about the value of these models. They're seldom off. If you have a firm idea of what you want for your property, fair enough. The sad truth is, despite recent increasing awareness and interest in the Westone brand most of their models do not command pricing on the same level as the major brands, no matter how hard you might stamp your feet in protest. The Spectrums fall into that category.

That said, if you're serious about selling a Westone, especially here, and especially at your asking price, potential buyers deserve to see decent pictures of the item eh? Sorry, but that one tiny picture of your FX does not make the grade.

Brimy can ask what he likes for his guitar. It is only his business and that of a genuine prospective buyer.

I really do not think that negotiations should take place within the public forum. If the PM system had been used here then this matter would not have escalated.

This is another example of friction being caused by people commenting on someone's for sale item and it could be perceived as a bit of grandstanding.

If you don't like the item or the price, don't buy it or alternatively contact the seller privately.
