Westone bass

    Some guy in my area is trying to sell a MIJ Westone
    for around $266 (exchange rate).

    from the picture it appears to be a Thunder 2 model v3
    produced around 1983, pearl silver finish.

    pictures were pretty low-res so while the bass may look pretty intact, there's no way to know until i actually go there and check it out.

    What do you guys think its worth?
  2. I have two thoughts:

    1) If it's in great shape, it may be worth it.

    2) Responses to posed questions will come quicker if you could use terms that are more PC in order to prevent subliminal offense. :scowl:

    Good luck with your choice(s)!

    They usually are a bit cheaper, but they
    are hard to come by. If it's in good shape
    and you like it, it's worth it because they
    are good basses,

    Sounds high to me. Those are not basses growing value over time
    like a mint old PBass.
