    I was impressed with their quality at the closeout price point but one minor thing kept tripping me up; the pickup covers (that Supro S) kept getting caught with my fingernails (I play mostly with fingers, not picks).

    Run, don't walk, and get the 2 pickup version at $329. That's a $500 guitar at an unbelievable price!

    I love my Westbury. The build quality is at least on par with Reverend. The pups are amazing.

    Note:. I play fingerstyle and have not had a problem with the S pickup covers. YMMV.

    Those covers are easy to pop off. Also, I put in two Firebird pickups which are direct drop-in replacements for the Hampton three pickup guitar. The Supro covers will even fit the Firebird pickups if you want to put them on to get a stock look.

    I totally admit that it's a personal preference. I do think they are stellar guitars for the money!

    Got any pics of this. I was considering the USA versions just to lose the S. I liked it at first but think I would prefer without.

    I got a 2020 Westbury last year in a sort of metallic copper color, and I adore that guitar. I don't know if I would have bought it for $1k, but... maybe? It's certainly better than some Korean guitars I've paid $800 for. I can definitely say that for $330, it was a no-brainer, and I would have happily paid double that, even. I think I'm gonna jump on the $60 case, since I missed those last year.

    I've got an order in for the flametop Hampton and case.

    Missed out on it last year because I had already picked up a bronze Jamesport and blue Westbury... and CME. Oh boy, CME;)
    Anyway, I think they are great. Even without last year's bonus deals, I feel this is worth the price.

    The case was showing backordered at the time, but it arrived today. Still waiting for the guitar (which was suppose to be in stock), haha.

    Crazy deal. I just can’t buy another guitar. I have very nice ones that are not seeing any play time as it is.

    Any of ya'll find the bridge pickup on the Hampton to be thin and really bright? It's kind of a jump from these really full sounding neck and middle positions, then there's a drop in bass on the bridge pickup and sounds pretty thin.

    Sorry I don't. But here is the guitar and a picture of the back of the pickup.
