As it is the Westone forum I assume everyone either knows about them or can find out about them - pretty much the flagship, top of the range bass made by Uncle Mats in the mid 80s. It is quite simply a work of art.
There was some lifting of the laquer around the tuners when I bought it - I had the headstock refurbished and it is now like new. Condition is I'd say around 9/10, still in original hardcase - not only are these extremely rare but I would doubt you'll see another as good. Only other thing to mention is a small red LED that was added to the control cluster at some point in its life that has no function other than coming on when the bass is plugged in - looks pretty cool!

Not sure how many others are in my boat... but for me right now no matter how strong my heart says yes, Yes, YES!!! the pocketbook says ain't gonna happen. My timing seems off as usual.
However, I wish you luck in tbe sale!
