'84 Thunder 1

Post by Sycosyd on Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:38 am

Just seen this on evil bay.  I've got a windfall coming soon and thought I'd give it a bash.  Is it worth it?  Looks in good shape with a few scratches on the front of the body and some chips to the clear finish on the back of the headstock.  One thing I noticed that made me wonder is that I didn't think the Thunder series had a Trem bar, but there seems to be the threaded hole for one on the bridge.  As well as the toggle switch next to the Volume & Tone knobs are missing(I thought there were three toggle switches)








Yep, I seem to have the bug for westies again, I regret buying my Squire and Rockburn Electrics now. Anyway, how much of a difference is the Thunder to play and sound from the Spectrum?

I can't imagine that a Thunder 1 will be too different from a Spectrum: a Thunder I-A, however, will blow you out of your socks with its' active circuitry....

Who's REALLY got the Westone bug, then?! Don't worry, mate; we've all been there... scouring eBay, Gumtree and Craigslist... haunting the second hand and pawn shops.... ah, yes... the memories!!
