Did anyone here buy this ... ? WestoneSuperHeadlesswalnut1
WESTONE SUPER HEADLESS BASS - Walnut, twin Magnabass humbuckers, c/w OHSC.

Sold yesterday for a pretty fair price, considering that this is a recent photograph and the bass appeared to be in near showroom condition Shocked . I think that this was the most expensive bass that Westone ever produced, if memory serves!

I had to sit on my hands and watch the auction in pain, whilst other people is, because I have too many basses already Embarassed .

Thought that you'd like to see the picture anyway, in case you missed the auction. Perhaps the new owner will come and post some more pics Very Happy !?

Could you please post a link to the auction? I'd like to see how it all went down.

Sorry Sfalj, I don't have a link any more. As you know, once the auction has finished, you can't call it up any more by searching in the listings.

I was being cautious about mentioning the price, in case it belonged to someone here and they preferred for it not be revealed. But, as nobody has laid claim to it and this isn't really confidential information anyway, let's just say that it went for between £400 & £500 Wink . Fair price, if you ask me!

That's a great price (for the seller)! Especially for such a beautiful instrument. Were you able to get any other pictures?

Here's the auction. You can search for completed listings once you are signed in to Ebay. It's on the litle panel on the left hand side:

Westone Super Headless Bass

Just as a reminder to everyone - please don't take images from other sites and post them here without permission. If you see an ebay picture you'd like to use, just contact the seller and ask if it's ok first, otherwise just provide a link to the original page.

Thanks

Very Happy

Hi,
I bought this. Smile

First: Excuse my bad English, I'm German.

When I bought a Westone The Rail Bass three years ago, I started looking for other Westone Basses made in the Eighties by Matsumoku. I fell in love with the Super Headless, and now, after three years of searching, I found this pretty thing.
I wanted it, and I would have paid (nearly) any price ...
The Super Headless arrived today, and it's in absolutely mint condition, really like new.
It came with the original case.
I'm very happy! A very fine bass!

I'm still looking for a Westone Genesis Bass, but they seem as hard to find.

Hi DeepDee,

Welcome to the Forum. You've got yourself a nice bass there, it looks amazing!

Good luck with the Genesis, I'm sure we'll all keep a look out for you.

Hi DeepDee,

You got a great bass there, by the looks of it - congratulations cheers !!!

It's funny, I live in Germany too, so we could have been bidding against each other, from just a few miles apart (potentially Wink ).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the bass for a long time to come.

Mit freundlichen Grüße,

I will report soon.
I'm very busy by the time, and this beauty wants new strings and a setup, maybe I will do a fretjob too.

Your fantastic bass looks so much like the Genesis except It has 2 to a side tuners on the headstock,
and a brass bridge, not a Steinberger type, like the photo....perfect for jazz rock fusion...
I know you'll have this Bass for the next 80 years...
Make some great music with her...
Take care
King
