Okey dokey, troops... a bloke in NZ has mailed me some bits for a Westone he's had hanging around since the 90s - and before you get all excited, there's no stringlocks or Switchmaster knobs!! - but there are 6 black 6-on-a-side tuners, 5 Bendmaster Deluxe saddles, a 1987 neckplate and the wee doofer what holds the Allen keys on the back of the headstock.

If you want any or all of it, sing out...

I'm assuming this is all gone, but is it possible that the neck plate is still available?

Yeah... that's a better one than the one I've got - mine is a black from Pantera and has seen better days.

Westbone,
That is exactly what I am looking for!
I would like to purchase one from you if you are willing to part with one.
I will also use it to make my graphic so we can make some from stainless in the future if needed...

Thank you,
Rick

A 5 hole, presume for a strap pin?

Don't have black or a 5 hole but a hole can always be drilled and a plate painted or powder coated.

Have chrome ones.
