So Westone actually made a conventional style "Strat" Cool

I take it is a Series II SP2111ST or similar then?

Would love to go for it but have to leave soon for a weekend of shows and haven't the time to do the whole "Finish" "UK" translation, calls etc

Be interested to know what you think if anyone here decides to grab it.

"Westone" didn't make anything Si, it is (was) the house brand name of Matsumoku built instruments, and post late '87, continued by other manufacturers in Korea. This would almost certainly be MIK assuming the serial number indicates a 1987 build.

No idea why it would be a "Strat" model though. scratch

Hey Barry, you know what I mean, it's got westie on the headstock Smile, good enough for me.....

and to my eyes, void of metal floyd trem units etc, it's got quite a stratty vibe to it, conventional three single coils etc, more so than some of the other Spectrums, although the headstock is obviously not.

Off out the door, have a great weekend

They look a bit head heavy..kind of too large for the body or is it just a pointy on a Strat.

I do Si.
That was more for the benefit of the many lurker readers out there, in an effort to avoid confusion on the general subject. Wink

It is a weird little build though int it?
