New Guitar day

Unread post by balston11 »

Saul always tells me that we discuss all electrics here so here's my latest
Just arrived this Westone Thunder 1 paid just over £100 for it absolutely class guitar made by Matsumoku in Japan mine is 1982 for thsoe who know it's a version 2 model but someone has sanded the headstock so removed the logo otherwise after a bit of fiddling with the electronics it plays beautifully. Still needs new strings and bit more cleaning to make it perfect

HNGD Bill, it looks good. :D

Does it have two volume or two tone controls ?
What's the small switch for ?
