Description

Very clean, completely original, unmodified 1981 Westone Thunder 1A with original spec brass bridge and brass nut plus the earlier (more desirable) version of the active preamp.

The guitar is in excellent condition for its age with only a small number of minor marks on the body or neck.

The finish is also in great condition with none of the wear between the pickups that can be common on more heavily played examples of this guitar.

As I say, it's all original with factory switches (all working well) and brass knobs showing just a bit of patina (see pics). The machine heads are also clean and working smoothly.

The really nice thing about this guitar is how it plays. I tried a couple before buying this one and it was the best I found. It has a low action, super smooth frets (very little wear) and a nice slim neck with a comfortable radius. Generally well set up with a 'sorted' kind of feel. The 'acoustic' sound of the guitar is lovely and the active electronics give a huge range of usable tones.

The previous owner had it from new and took great care of it. I've had it a couple years myself and gave it a full clean/refurbish and setup when I acquired it.

Only oddity are two very small holes in the back of the headstock (pictured). Looks like something was once attached here. Not really noticeable but wanted to mention for completeness.

If I had the space I'd definitely hold on to this guitar but I have too much gear and something has to go.
