Well,most of it. A couple of things have succumbed to the ravages of time kids and cats but the vast majority is there. Free but collection only (At a safe distance!) due to size (3 full A4 box files) and us being in complete virus lockdown. Located in Cramlington,Northumberland.

Obviously I'm not in a position to uplift them, but I think they would have value...

They have either sentimental or monetary value - one of the catalogues set me back nearly £50. At this point readers are probably divided between 2 opinions, either 'he was dedicated' or 'he was an idiot'.

I'm sitting on the fence here, I was a dedicated idiot. Laughing

As far as information goes there is nothing there that isn't already on the site. I don't want to bin any of it so it's a standing offer, anyone wants it all or individual bits it's available.

David, without that dedication, (OK obsession) we'd all be in the dark about Westone and at the mercy of urban myths and endless speculation, like so many other niche brands out there.

What members currently enjoy would not have been possible without that important core information which you provided.

Thank you.

I didn't see this earlier, being semi local I guess I could take them, however as we're in lockdown and I don't drive so won't risk taking public transport, it'll have to be once this fiasco has passed.
Thanks David.

Thanks David!

The Westone paper archives will be available to the public by appointment at the museum located at a Church, in Canaan, Connecticut (2 hours North of New York city). It's open to anyone if you private message me ahead for an appointment.

There are also a few nice Westone guitars on display and I'm looking for more interesting Westone artifacts if you would be so generous as to donate them to the (small, unofficial) Westone Exhibit.


I'd really like your suggestions as to what you want to see or what Westone-related items we should try to exhibit?

Thanks!
Bryant Jones

Bryant, it its not good practice to post a phone number in a public forum. You are opening yourself to harrasment, and I don't think you want a flurry of telemarketing calls either.

I have put a "strike" through the number which may help stop screen-scraping robots from recognizing it, but I strongly suggest removing it altogether and inviting interested people to send a private message to you instead.
