Hi all, quick intro: Tom's the name, partial to a guitar or two, and have an unhealthy interest in Matsumoku instruments for reasons I'll go into eventually. Based near Norwich, UK, but often found in various parts of the world for work, unexpected extended stays somewhere will inevitably result in another instrument purchased. Here I am:

(on the left). A bit dull, sensible and practical. So, let's try again:

Better.
Here's a selection of my lot:

Looks like it's 3 pics per post so I'll carry on in a more appropriate "show us your stuff" thread asap. I'll try and get to grips with the photo sizing too.

St Catharines!! The Gretsch acoustic in that photo was procured from Tundra in Hamilton to keep me company for the year I spent there. I'll post a bit more when I get a moment.

I say "Hello" ;-)

Ok, male, 59YO. 

I have a Westone electric guitar, seems to be a prototype from the Matsumoku era.

Welcome JerryLee!

We have seen at least one other model like yours before and it's on our website HERE

It likely was a prototype but we have no information on it. So we'd be grateful for anything you can tell us/show us about your guitar.  Very Happy

Please start a new topic in the Members' Westone forum. Tell us your story and post lots of pictures!

Hi all! 

My name is Mike; 23 years old and been playing bass for almost 3 years now and I already have way too many instruments lol

Among my collection, an '86 Spectrum GT fretless! 

concord - Say hello... - Page 3 24221210
concord - Say hello... - Page 3 24223810
concord - Say hello... - Page 3 24249910

She's been well loved over the years, no shortage of dings and chips but she still plays like a dream! No dead spots or anything. And those pickups!!! Amazingly loud!

You might also be able to see the headstock of her sister bass, an Aria ProII RSB smooth joint series. Also an '86 Matsu! (but much worse for wear, a whole lot of chipping paint and the guts need a little work... I've got it jury rigged to function for now)

I'm thinking of finally getting a soldering kit and giving them both a once over inside and out, just to help keep them in top condition. The fact that these basses are older than me and still look and work so great really speaks to their quality and I'm a lucky dude to have them both in my possession.

Thanks for the add to the forum by the way!

Welcome fellow Canuck! Welcome
That is a gorgeous looking bass right there. This is not really the place for pix so please feel free to start a new thread in the Members' Forum and post lots of pictures of your babies!

Welcome  SimplyMe!  You have a great late 80's, early 90's Korean made Challenger.  I like the unique plum color of yours.

Hey, all...

...just got my first Westone, a Corsair GT (?), appears to be trans purple over a flame finish (photo flame or real, unsure).  The Bendmaster Deluxe has no arm, and the wiring has noise issues, so I've got some work ahead...but I remember getting their catalogs as a teenager, when Trevor Rabin was endorsing 'em...and it's kinda cool to finally get one in hand(s).

I'm a tinkerer, so there may be some mods.  The wiring approach is...well, interesting...?

Very cool, thank you...after looking for many years, it's kinda surreal to own one.  I have to admit that it bit me last night, I had just finally gotten home to sit down with it and the ground wire to the jack went south almost immediately...the trem went from benign to full-floating nightmare...and so on.  It still seems noisy, I figure grounds and solder connections 3 decades old can be very suspect.  I'm a tinkerer, I shall tinker in the coming weeks.  A trem stabilizer will be added pretty soon.

Before you get too carried away: re-flowing the old solder joints might be worth doing if they seem a little 'brittle' or 'cold'.

Circuit noise is usually caused by oxidation of the pot wipers and switch contact points. A liberal spraying with contact cleaner will usually cure the scratchiness and drop outs.

Spray. Work it like a monkey in a mango tree. Repeat. clown

Westone tremolo bridges, like all trems, usually respond well if set up correctly, you may not need anything to 'stabilize' it.

Yeah, that's all basically on the slate for this weekend.  I'm pretty fried when I get home from work, so it'll be bits and bursts of time 'til then.

Gorgeous axe, though I'm still not entirely sure which Corsair she is....
