Westone WE1052.....ever heard of it????

Post by djhollowman on Tue Jun 30, 2009 3:45 pm

I recently scored a large boxful of back issues of Guitarist magazine, and various other guitar mags. In an issue dated Feb 1997 (which features Ace Frehley on the cover!) there is a lovely 3-page review of the Westone WE1052. Never heard of it before, but I'm no expert, so thought I'd google up some more info and pics etc.....NOTHING! Not the proverbial sausage! Shame really, cos it looks like a reasonable guitar!
Korean-made, Floyd Rose double-locking trem, ash body, "hybrid active system" pickups (H-S-S), gold harware, 24 fret neck. Bit of a '90s shred monster - no wonder I likes it!!
I could scan the feature and post it up, for those interested.
Just find it odd that there's NO mention of it anywhere else I've looked, not even here! scratch

It's not all that unusual to not find it in here as I'm positive there are Westone guitars from the late 80's/early 90's that we haven't seen yet; scan it in and let's have a look at it; I'm sure a few of the wannabe shredders in here - me included! - would like to see it!
The other reason it might not be in here is that we are, primarily, Matsumoku Westone orientated but are slowly coming to terms with the early Korean-made instruments; some of them look simply spectacular but for us Matt snobs, only a Matt will do!! Laughing

FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.
