Does anyone know anything about this guitar?

Post by Lukeagnew on Mon Jul 30, 2018 2:42 pm

I bought this guitar when I was a teenager and sanded all the paintwork off and cut the devil horns into the headstock. /: I now appreciate how destructive this was, the thing is I seem to remember the westone logo on the headstock but I can't seem to find any similar westone models so I thought this forum may be able to shine some light on it...

Hiya, Luke...
.... it doesn't immediately ring any Westone bells, but I have a Vantage X series that looks very similar....

Yeah, the body shape is more like a Vantage Avenger than a Westone. And Westone didn't put out a whole lot of single pup models.

BTW Vantage models are terrific! So Happy

Satellite....El cheapo guitars from way back.

Made a few through necks that were decent.

The particular guitar in question is a very thin plywood body with a veneer.
Very small body.
