Think your right there!!

Never seen the 3 way switch cover that shape on a Mats Westone. Also the 3 way switch is in a different position to a Paduak II. Can't see the factory going to all that trouble.

The routing for the neck pup is 'dodgy'.

The 'I' has been removed from the headstock.

How do you adjust the truss rod without removing the neck pup or neck!!?

Certainly think that has been modified and not at the factory... Evil or Very Mad

It's 'A RINGER'

That wiring looks like an abortion.

Way,way overpriced for what it is. 'king rip off.

Yeah but he runs a business so it's a perfectly justified price, and its a beautiful restoration, just look at that brass gleam!

Just so we're all aware of the level of bull being put forward, check this listing and spot the obvious flaws. 
Kay??

Now I've no issues with people buying cheap, (this was £50) and removing the original pickups and selling them separately,  but...... I just think a businessman should know what he's selling.

The fake marker pen in the neck pocket was the first one.. Pad 1 has neck bottom adjustment as too pad 2 having headstock adjustment (like the concords)... Neck pocket looks lower than should be an then controls an rout are wrong... Bar that its not bad... Crazy price when you think at the prices of prestige an rainbows which were higher grade models... Wonder what will be the first £1000:00 or above westone on ebay uk..

What's wrong with these people? Call it a mash up or sumthin', but don't blow smoke up my kilt.

Terrible thing to do to a nice neck.

Yepper, and still are!  After that post I had contacted the man and explained to him.  No answer.  And not description change.   At least he knows now.  I guess.  Laughing
