Well folks, here's yet another outrageous asking price for a "super rare" Mats guitar by an owner who apparently doesn't know the difference between an aging patina and a "roasted maple" neck.

I've been heavily invested in the Westone brand for many years and the prices have varied a bit over that time, but I've been able to get them for reasonable cost, albeit many required mouth-to-fret resuscitation to un-do damage from "mods" and general abuse.

But this past couple of years the asking prices, as we've been discussing here recently, have gone beyond reality into the realm of ransom!

Check this one out:
CDN$750 and not even a gig bag! :roll:

I posted this on the Westone Forum as well (naturally) but I didn't bother to do my usual examination of the guitar in magnification 'cause I couldn't get past that price!

But one of the members there did and drew my attention to the string windings on the posts which were all backwards!

So for what it was worth, I messaged the seller with a few comments including the roasted maple description, the string thing, and the fact that although they were hard to find they were not "super rare". Gave him a link to the website too.

He responded:
Quote:
Thanks I didn’t realize I put roasted maple Another guitar I had did must of autocorrect

Then he added:
Quote:
As for the strings I am well aware I received it like this and haven’t changed them yet

He also said:
Quote:
Seeing as there are only 1 other available online I’d say it’s a super rare find.

Ya know, some people are just not beyond the intelligence of a house plant. :toopid:
