1980 Westone for sale in The Netherlands

Post by BQmusic on Thu May 18, 2017 3:12 am







This one just showed up on the Dutch "Marktplaats" (Marketplace) website.
Just having bought a 1980 "unknown" bass (of which I will post pictures later) I thought it would be a very cool match with the bass but the owner sais it is worth 3000,- and does not part with it for much less tha 2000,- affraid

I was hoping for a bargain. Haha!

The guy sais nonly 60 of these are made. It may be true...

Then he has knowledge that we don't. If he has proof of that claim we'd like to hear about it.

Yes it is a rare prototype for sure. And seems to be in excellent condition. The price is a personal or a fashion thing IMO. Because it isn't in any catalogus it may be unknown and thus unpopular. If there is a lot of talk on the web about these guitars the price may be super high. I don't think people pay over 750 for a high end Matsumoku guitar right now in the Nerherlands.

This is not a "rare prototype" but more likely an earlier iteration of the Thunder line. There are at least 3 examples of this model on our web site, including one in a dark walnut stain. LINK
They seem to have been available in a number of locations and certainly not worth 1 000

Even though my comment was meant to be tongue in cheek, I suppose actually it is a "rare prototype", as there were only a few made it seems.

It's not, though, a "valuable rare prototype". It probably does have a bit of additional value if you can find the right person who really want's it for his collection...

Barry is right. this is not a prototype. A prototype would be a hand-build one-of-a-kind.
