Estate Liquidator in Idaho has a Westone Thunder 1 For Sale

Post by idaholiquidators on Fri May 29, 2015 9:17 pm

First, I appreciate the opportunity to learn from this fantastic resource. I have a listing on Ebay and I really have no knowledge of Westones and limited knowledge of guitars in general. I am a buyer and seller of all things of value. 

Here is the listing for the Westone Thunder 1 I am sure it will find a good home here.

Apparently I cant post a link as I am a new member the Ebay Item number is  171806956350

Thank you for any information you can provide.

Looks legit to me, but I'm no expert on the Thunders....

She's an '82 and looks to be in decent condition, except for some scuffing on the neck. Nice to have an original case.

The bridge pickup has been replaced as well as 4 of the machine heads for some strange reason.

this one 
>i think the machine heads are originals, the westone brand is just not visible on those four due to the angle of the photo

>might be some slight damage around the output jack

>probably, the original nut was brass, this one looks to be a replacement

>pure speculation here; the body looks to be very light in color, not the honey-like color most typical of the ash bodies. perhaps it has been sanded and refinished?

it would be nice to see the bottom side of the bridge pickup- i wonder what kind of pickup it is?

You're right about the nut and input jack Mike, missed that on a quick once over. But I'm clearly seeing only 2 black Westone embossed machine heads. The other 4 are plain chrome with what looks like their protective stickers still attached to the dust covers.

Hi All,

Look at pic 6 from the left (full body shot of guitar upsidedown in case), the backs of all the machine heads are chrome. The machine heads of strings 1 and 2 must be reflecting something black in pic 8. Yes, the output jack seems to be padded out with a repair washer. Lovely case though, fits the guitar like a glove and is clean. I'm desperate for an original Westone case for a Thunder Jet bass, sadly this will be too short.

Could it be an MMK75? did the 53's come with these covers? (I'm too busy/lazy to check)
