Westone Pantera parts needed!

Post by Senzuri on Wed Oct 18, 2017 6:09 pm

Hello, looking for any parts for the Westone Pantera X275, preferably tuning pegs and the bendmaster FT unit (With the tremolo arm and added parts). If possible, the colour black would be the most preferred for all items! Thank ya'!

The machine heads are still available from Gotoh, albeit without the Westone logo! 

The FT bridge is a whole new level of frustration; there's not many about at all, and you need the stringlock as well, unless you retrofit a locking nut.

I have the stringlocks, they seem to be in working order, albeit just a tad dirty. I'll check out the machine heads from Gotoh!

are you sure you need a Bendmaster FT?
my Pantera X275 guitars all have the Bendmaster Deluxe tremolo

Oh, I seem to have gotten them mixed up! I did mean the Bendmaster Deluxe, not the FT!

Ah, well... I have a couple of Deluxes in my spares box, one of which may even be black - I'll have to check. From memory they are complete, except for the bar, which is available as "Bar, 6mm, for imports" at Stewmac.

Look at the bridge pickup on that one.
You can see it's a crappy UBC pickup by the skinny winds on it. Look at the tape it's sagging, sad... Sad

I had my eye on that one before I picked up a Pale Yellow one off eBay, the pickups sound good, but just want to make sure I have some spare components!

Also, do let me know if you have a black one, Corsair! I'm just glad I finally have a method of getting some westone parts.
