My very nice WestoneThunder 1 dating from 1982 .  Made in the highly regarded Japanese Matsumoku factory these have a great reputation and are still highly desirable. It out- precisions most precision basses, partly because of the brass nut and bridge.
This has nicely figured wood, though there is an oval area that still shows where I presume a sticker or pickguard was placed at some time in the past.
It is a 35 year old instrument so it naturally has some marks, blemishes etc. It is currently strung with flatwounds and is James Jamerson Motown ready.
I am reluctant to sell because I love its straightforward un fussiness, combined with great quality, but the novelty of a new Jack Casady is taking precedence just now.
It is in full working order and ready to go

If you wanted I could ship it in one of the hard cases I also have listed, if so I will combine postage

I am new on Reverb but you can check my 100% feed back  as Olchawski on that well known auction site
