Unidentified Westone (CAN) Empty Unidentified Westone (CAN)

Absolutely no idea what this is, we don't have anything like it on the web site "Unidentified" listing.
LINK
CAD$425

Looks very playable, and as an aside, the seller mentions that he bought it from Don't Fret. That music store was owned by my old bass player and we practiced there Thursday nights for many years. We parted company about 2003 and the store is closed now. Interesting how these things circle around.

As the seller says it's a Vantage.

A Korean one at that.

That'd have to be a recent one, eh; quite classy in its way....

WTF is a "springy" sound??

I think it's like a machine that goes "Ping!"

I kinda like it.

Yeah, the logo script looks the same but the guitar design is wa-a-y different from those in the cat, especially with that quasi-Gumby head stock.

Strange little thing ain't it? Strange and, um, "springy".

That thing isn't worthy of that sweet era of Westone! 

That's when they had the Dana (I'm partial), the Lynch custom, the Rabin, the Modulus neck Villain.  Korean?  Yes.  Still great?  The ones that I just mentioned, yes sir, they were.

Nope. rabbit

Does this mean that it does not go, "Ping!" then?

I copied the pictures of this beast and cleaned 'em up a bit just so we'd have a record of it.
Not sure if it needs to be added to the Unidentified section of the web site.

I vote no, it looks like a later era guitar to me.  Past 1990.   Thoughts?
