Westone Thunder 3

Post by moose on Sun Jul 19, 2015 12:37 pm

I have a westone Thunder 3 guitar that I picked up from FCN the UK distributors who were local to me when they closed a few years ago,it had never been out of the warehouse and had sat in a case for 30 odd years, it has a couple of parts missing truss rod cover,battery cover and control cavity cover, it also has one of the mini switches missing but the wiring is intact and the guitar functions including the actives, I think its the coil tap switch thats missing. The brass cover for the toggle switch is present but had never been fitted (no screw holes for it) just tapped on. Was thinking of restoring it but would need the missing parts and a wiring diagram for the electrics, the neck is in excellent condition with no fret wear and a super low action. These really were and are underrated guitars I used to sell them back in the day when I worked at a local music shop in Kent. If anyone is interested I will try to upload a few pictures of it
