Looking for a Rainbow!!! Empty Looking for a Rainbow!!!

Post by Carter321 Thu Jul 28, 2011 3:31 pm

All,

Currently looking for a decent Rainbow 1 with case and would rather deal with a forum member than some Ebay idiot. Willing to pay a fair price to anyone willing to sell one of these babies.

I need it to add to the collection.

Thanks

Carter

Welcome to the forum. Hope you can realize your desire here but the queue may be long for one of those.

Welcome to the forum Carter, I guess this idiot's a bit too heavy, probably why it's on the second way around, link

You'll find most here will be asking to see pics of your collection, we're a bit voyeuristic like that. Very Happy

Don't worry all, I'll post some pics of my collection over the weekend. The Thunder 1A has seen better days but the Super headless is sweeeeet, near mint condition + original case.

Yes the Rainbow on flee-bay right now is quite pricey. Looks in ok condition but no case. Probably only worth £300 - £330 maybe.....I've noticed Westone's going for more money as they're heading towards 30yrs old.

Pricey to us Westone collectors who love bargains, but for a well made quality guitar that plays & sounds fantastic it's worth every penny.

Don't like the rounder horn type, look a bit 'Micky Mouse' or the ash grain.

Mickey Mouse? Really? I think it looks more Gibby 335, and thin horns make the rains look a bit weak. I was all about looking for a rainbow till I got the Alvarez semihollow that I posted in another thread, but If i could find a blonde rounded horn rain, I'd go for that too.

You have a great grouping in your 4 - love the maple on the one - perfect looking. Post some pics of the blonde Session if ya get the chance eh

Yes, the round horns look a bit like Mickey's ears!
Just another 335 clone. At least the later Rainbows have a bit of individuality.

I'll dig out the Session II sometime.
