First things first, Barry if your reading this, please look away now! - Westone Raider 1 Bass

Mm-mm sparkley.......ermm...*ahem*...sorry, it's finished in what is officially known as Sparkle Gold & Red, can't think why?

It's in exceptional condition and completely original with the seller reporting only a couple of small chips on the horns. It even has the protective plastic film on the rear of the tuners!!!

£99.99 - Starting Bid.

I like the Raiders and should a Raider I in blue/gold cross my path... well... you all know what'll happen, eh!! raider - 1983 Raider I bass *sparkletastic!* (eBay UK) Icon_lol raider - 1983 Raider I bass *sparkletastic!* (eBay UK) Icon_lol Did y'all notice this part of his spiel...

I bought my first Westone in 1981 and I have been collecting and
playing them at gigs since them. Westones are still one of the best
kept secrets in the bass world.

... I wonder if he/she is a member in here?

The UK one is very err... sparkly, and very pointy.

Have the knob-thieves been there or are those the originals?

They seem unusual for Matsumoku but I've checked it out and they match the one pictured in the 1983 catalogue, HERE.

Well that's a tad better, I guess. The sparkles are almost tolerable. And the bridge is waaaay better.

But that bottom horn is outrageous!
They shoulda named this model, "VLAD the Impaler"...now that's entertainment! raider - 1983 Raider I bass *sparkletastic!* (eBay UK) Icon_razz

This might not be my color preference but WOW. I would rock that so hard.

Making sure of course that I have plenty of open space around me to not break a horn or stab someone of course.

This got snapped up for £123.10.

Bargain considering it's near immaculate condition.

Totally agree Dan; despite it's love-it-or-hate-it looks What a Face it was immaculate.

Love to find a Thunder bass as good
