My Westone Prestige 250 had arrived a couple of days ago. And I already had a Prestige 150. So I couldn't resist the chance to group them with my Talon... to confirm or deny my suspicion further, was the Talon truly based upon the Westone Prestige like I thought it was?

Look for yourself... What do you think?

After my comparison, the Talon nestled among the Prestige duo, I no longer have any doubt. The Talon is a modern, 24 fret, flattop, Floyd bearing Electra version of the gorgeous Westone Prestige design! The Talon may be the closest thing to a Prestige reissue as we'll ever get.

Pretty cool, the Prestige design was always one of my favorites. Maybe that's what drew me to the Talon, even though I didn't make the connection in my mind at the time.

All of you Prestige fans... this is your chance. Hurry up and grab your Electra Talon while they are still available. :)

Does the binding on the prestige look wider at the cutaway because it is beveled back?

The Prestige is a carved top, the Talon is flat. That's the difference.
