  • 1980's Westone Thunder 1.

    Looks nice and please take the time to read the reviews on Harmony central.

    Link: http://reviews.harmony-central.com/r...Thunder+I/10/1

    Overall 9.5 out of 10 !!! (20 reviews)

    A bargain.

    "NO, I don't build left handed guitars! I think left handed people are freaks and should not even play the guitar."

    Words by a famous luthier when asked by me for a custom left handed instrument quote.

    "Great man, you are brilliant! So your stupid ass thinks that Hendrix should have never played the guitar?!"

    My reply.

    $250 would really be a bargain, I'm sure it'll end up a tad higher though. They're very popular among vintage MiJ collectors.
    Personally I never cared for the looks, they do play and sound brilliant though.

        The radio knobs rule, anyone know if this the original to these ? I saw some at Radio Shack, while I was browsing I forgot to pick them up, gonna try them on my P-Bass.
        Go get 'em Jesse~!

          That is a sweet lookin' guitar, but ain't $250 a bit much.

          I was thinking more in the $150 to $200 range.

          My (2) Westone Concorde's cost me less than half that price.



          I understand they are not the same guitar, but.....

          The black one is still waiting for me to find some time to repaint her to match Mellow Yellow.

              In Europe these go for anywhere between €300 - €500 righthanded. I haven't seen any lefties but I'd imagine they'd fetch a lil more. Depending on the state they're in.
              Also, while your Concordes are nice, this is in a different league.

                  That's exactly why I was thinking 150-200. Mellow Yellow cost $25 and BB (Brass & Black) cost less than $100 shipped.

                    I think it's a beautiful guitar but I just hate it when righties take left handed guitars and hendrix them out. It's already hard enough to get a lefty and then you see a righty mangling one.
