You're right Warrn.
It was late when I posted and I had the year '82 confused in my fingers... Concord I -Version 1 -1982 (CAN) Icon_rabbit

Not trying to be annoying or anything, but I had to double check that the Concord I was the one with two pickups and figured the correction would be helpful regardless of whether anyone got it.

Those knobs might be off a Westone but they're not original to this guitar, they didn't start using Switchmaster knobs until 84

Oh wow, with all the black I didn't even notice the knobs were switchmasters. Now that is unusual.

No worries warrn, it was a typo and you caught it!
Hey badger, yer right. Those knobs are rare as hell, and they're not original with this version of Concord. Wrong pups and wrong knobs; but still a good buy!

Those knobs aren't original to any version of the Concord series.

There's a valuable lesson in the ad to all potential buyers of any Westone (Or anything else for that matter) - do your homework. Just because the seller says it's a Concord II doesn't mean it actually is.

It was the italicizing of my name that made me think you might be peeved, since you don't normally italicize them in your posts. And to Badger, the Concord SX actually DID have switchmaster knobs, but on the other hand it appears to have come into existence before the Spectrum name was chosen (it has a Spectrum body). And also, the the seller only refers to it as a Concord, there's no mention of it being a I or II. It's not been misrepresented in any way, the description is just a little lacking.

My stupid, I misread 'Westone Concord, 2 non original pickups' as 'Westone Concord 2, non original pickups', and I' completely forgotten about the SX - maybe cos it doesn't look much like a concord since the others have large scratchplates
