'Modified' Concord II

Post by DuoFuzz on Sat Aug 22, 2009 6:42 pm

Yet another act of vandalism on a Westone, shameful. Mad

LOOK IF YOU DARE !

To be fair it's not to bad, I reckon it could still make a nice guitar, but what the hell happened to the headstock. Shocked

Also note the over painted trussrod bullet and neck plate, British racing green I think....Mmmm, nice!

What the hell possessed someone to think that what they did to the headstock has made it better!? Looks like he tried to make it into a Strat! clown
Shameful. The guitar itself may be OK though?

News flash, IT'S BACK! £100 starting bid. Again.

Please note, the pictures of the mangled headstock have mysteriously disappeared ? I wonder why

I have a bad feeling someone is going to get conned out of some GAS tokens for this one, devious bast........

Gosh.. that's relatively insane. I don't feel so bad now about stuff I used to inflict upon my old Yam SG (sanding the neck) when I was a lad.

He's added a picture of the headstock. It doesn't look bad, sort of Fender-ish (better looking than a Fender headstock I'd say, but I've never been a fan of Fender). But, you know, it's not a Westone headstock. No lie, though, I don't have a problem with the look of it at all. In fact I like the headstock better than the pickguard (I only like the version 1 pickguards on Concords). Am I picky and weird or what?

That's better, at least you know what you're getting now.

To be fair, it probably will make a good guitar as long as your not expecting an original example.

Still don't look right though!

Right, much better than I had imagined. He was liberal with the paint.

It didn't go last time so it's been re-re-listed HERE and still has a starting bid of £150 .

Way, way too dear for a 'modified' Concord; that's just an awful headstock treatment....

Yet again it didn't go (I'm shocked! )

I wonder when we will see this one again?

This thing should have its own TV series: Wild Wild Westone.

Someone eventually stumped up one bid at the asking price of £90.

It finally went, I can't believe it!
