Yummy!!

The back of my Gen II neck is a semi-gloss which doesn't impede hand movement at all; that said if I was going to play it out, I'd sand it back to about 2000grit and really enjoy it!! It has a very comfortable profile, eh!

That's in wonderful nick, Chris - you did good!

Looks a darn site better condition than mine! The bottom was really full of scrapes and dings (no case, or stand--ever!)

It's hard to tell from pictures but I think I see what you're getting at. It looks like it might have missed a finally coat and/or a sanding? Gotta really to squint to see anything though. :eyeball:

It really is in good shape, I cannot complain.
The issues with the neck were just nit picking.

I was so pleased that it wasn't missing anything other than the arm.

Don't think that I haven't considered it. I tried it on an extremely cheap guitar I picked up and find myself picking it up more.
Hmm, I was gonna show a few more pics but I seem to have reached my board attachment quota. :(

Huh? What's that all about then? Never heard of such a thing. :toopid:

The number of pix you post should not impact the board at all since they are hosted elsewhere. There are only hyperlinks here.

Oh Crusty, something is not quite right. :doh:

Start a post on the Westone Forum Chris so we can see this thing!
