    Electra Phoenix. Not a Westone, but apparently made in the same factory. Nope, not my guitar, just something I saw on Reverb that gave me a laugh.

    Something weird going on with that middle pickup too - makes it look like it has 8 pole pieces at a glance.

    And where is that jack socket sneaking off to?

    Not a comfortable visual experience all round...

    It definitely looks like a Westone body.

    My first guitar was a Westone Thunder 1A... it was actually very good.

    Oof, that one definitely wins. I'm not sure what it wins, but still...

    I'd throw a bozo sticker on it and play it hard.

    The whole guitar is a bozo sticker.

    .

    Looks like they were going for that 'pickups are so hot they are heating the finish' look.

    Needed more fade to blend better, at least.

    Westone ... probably made at the famous Matsumoku factory, from the small fret markers.
    If that is the case it will be a great player. Poor color choice though.

    With such a narrow opening at the center that isn't clown - it's crowning.

    I always wanted to go to a jazz gig and see the guitarist playing a BC Rich or some other guitar with multiple points.

    That's not the kind of crowning I was talking about.

    Deep breath, now one more hard push.
