Westones were a staple of many Indie bands of the early 1980s

Bogshed used both a Thunder Jet Bass and a Thunder 1A

Keith from the Wedding Present used a Thunder bass.

Don't get me started on all the world music bands at that time, who touted Westones, Westburys, Arias and other Matsumoku etc.

Check out old vids on YouTube;- Thomas Mapfumo, Bhundus and more.

Paul Court - The Primitives

just spotted these old photos on their Facebook/Twitter pages.    

May 1987.

Is it a Westone Thunder 3?

on the westone website there is a guitar listed as unknown #4 . along with it, there is a picture of a magazine cover. the guitar player shown is Mark White of ABC. he is holding a guitar similar but not the same as the unknown #4.

in this official video, you can see him playing the same guitar as he is holding in the picture on the magazine cover.

Looks a lot cooler on stage than in the flesh methinks. Thinking 2
But those single coils likely sound good.
