Hi I'm hoping you can help me I just brought this guitar off ebay but I can't find what model it is or any details about it as it don't have a number. It's the same shape as a BC Rich Mockingbird with a Westone logo on the head stock. I would post a pic but it won't let me for some reason. Dose anybody know what it is? Thanks for your help.

Hi, and welcome.
New members must wait 7 days before they can post pix or links. It's an anti spam preventive.
It sounds like you may have the Monark. You can read a bit about it HERE

Hello and welcome Char_R_C.
There are only a few that may have some resemblance. BC's are known for their 'angular' shapes.
As Barry mentioned, the Monarch is one of the radical Westone shapes, the other possibilities are the Raider or the Dimension IV.

Hi there.
Ebay has seen a few of these over the past year. They look decent enough for a budget Korean.
Hope you didn't pay too much!

Hi thank you for your help. That's it's Catalyst. The pickup gone yellow and volume knob is a bit loose but apart from that it all works paid £18 for it. I tend to buy cheap guitars and do them up but I tend to like to know what it is before I do to much to them. Does anybody know anything about the pickups?

Have seen a few of these.

Chinese made junk. Sharp fret ends, uneven frets, crap timbers.
Pickups, no idea. They are a cheap guitar and at £18 just about the right price.... Evil or Very Mad

I had never seen this. I don't disagree with Westbone. Almost looks like an entry level BCR, even the fret markers look authentic. The W doesn't belong there though, and even looks to be off-center and an imitation. It probably stands for "Want to be"..
