I Just Bought a Concord DX on the Swedish version of Ebay. Iím almost sure itís Tobyís Guitar the same images was used in this tread and in the ad. The Serial number on the neck Is 4091302.
Thatís just 36 of from the number posted by ďconcordDXĒ above. I guess this is his ad:
Perhaps that's the same guitar as ďthedude051Ē mentions in his signature on ultimate-guitar.comí forum (heís from Ontario to)? That makes 2-3 guitars of this model mentioned on the net.
Right now Iím having fun with the guitar. It looks like xxxx but since Itís not aware of this it play ridiculously well
Is there any particular picture you want to see IF I take it apart next weekend? This is what I know:
- There is something funny with the bridge attachment (partly unscrewed to compensate for ??what ?)
- There is 2 worrying cracks. One on the right side of the body were the neck attaches. The other is the big one visible in Tobys pictures. It can also be seen from the back if I remove the cover over the jack/pots compartment. It a crack from the jack to the volume :-(
- Pickup selector I broken (works, itís just the level thatís broken)
- Pots have received a blow.
- Stringlock is replaced with some kind of homemade ďstring collectorĒ
- lower Strapbolt replaced/redrilled
Ahhh. Just a Quick look at the pickups. Looks like the one in ďanaerobeísĒ picture but the back-plate is Steel or aluminum. There is no marking on the pickups but there is a sticker in the bottom of the cut out for the neck pickup. There is a number: 5826 950 .
By the way, did I mention the guitar sound great despite all the cracks and junk? Especially if you pull the tone-knob into ďsingle coil modeĒ.
And a question. What is the proper way to ďintroduceĒ a guitar to the forum. Iím afraid I will need some help during the inspection of this guitar. I donít want to mess anything up or fix something that ainít broken.

The bridge; it should be a Bendmaster FT, with the appropriate string lock behind the nut and I'm not sure I understand yor question; are the posts that the bridge pivots on starting to come out of the body of the guitar?
The cracks; the one by the neck pocket MIGHT just be a stress crack in the lacquer - you'll see when the neck comes out... talking of which, lift the neck out of the pocket, don't slide it out in the headstock direction as there is a slight taper on the neck and pocket. I can't see any cracks in the pics so maybe you should take a few and post 'em...
The stringlock, you might be lucky to get what you need here....
.... but he has none of the baseplates left. Once again, take a picture of what you have and we'll go from there...
The strap peg, well, I take the OEM ones off and whack straplocks on 'em anyway so that's not too much of a problem.
Mate, just take some good pix of the beast and post in the members Westones section... we live to perve at other peoples guitars, and I'm a huge Spectrum fan anyway, so bring it on!
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 elseís.
