my apologies to westone for slating their "new" guitars! the one i originally tried must have ben a one off as ive since played (and bought) a couple more and they are great guitars.
cant remember if its the cutlas or the corsair that ive got but its the natural finished ash body with 1 hum 1 single and the perfect sclae length of 25! not quite gibson not quit fender but an ideal length for me.
please try them out if your lucky you can get em for around £250 as no one else trys them and the shops just want rid. gotoh pick ups and trem and tunners and a 5 yes 5 ply scratchplate!

I am surprised they are not doing well. From what I have read they were looked upon rather favorably and considered pro grade instruments. Maybe a few will be ferried across the pond and take off here.

i know its shocking. but us guitarist can be fickle and snobish when its comes to whats written on the headstock.
All the guitar magazines in the uk have said what great instruments they are and how well built etc.. but the shops just cant get rid of them.
I have a friend who runs a guitar shop and the uk dealer for westone have offered him them at practaclly give away prices. the rrp is £399
but you can get one now for around £190-250, thats a bargin.
