The Westone guitar and bass guitar resource archive
This is site is an authorised archive of the old westone.info site.
It is maintained, but no longer updated.
The new Westone site now resides at http://www.westoneguitars.net
Please go there for the latest information on Westone instruments and accessories.
This site is devoted to the Westone brand of guitars and basses made originally by Matsumoku of Japan from 1981 to 1987/88, and subsequently by SLM from 1987/88 to 1991. Whether you already own a Westone guitar or are considering buying one, this site will give you the most accurate information about Westone guitars and basses that you can find.
Most of the information in this site is either taken from Westone catalogues, magazine reviews or from my own guitars. I try to name sources for info on other guitars and make it clear when I'm taking a best guess. I hope you enjoy your visit.

WESTONE ACOUSTIC GUITAR MODELS LIST
Please note that this site does not cover -
Something a bit different - a Westone you can sit on
- Electra or Electra-Westone guitars (See the links page for a site that does cover them)
- The Westone 'Prestige' models (Corsair and Cutlass) made in the UK in the late 1990s
- Electric guitars and basses made under the Westone name in China or Korea since the late 1990s, which all seem to be copies of other makes such as BC Rich (Mockingbird and Warlock), Gibson (Les Paul, SG, 355) and Fender (Strat, Tele, Precision bass) - apart from the name, these guitars have nothing in common with the original Westone guitars
- Acoustic and electro-acoustic made under the Westone name in China or Korea since the late 1990s (Including the Prairie/Praivie models)
