Westone Prestige 250

Mahogany body capped with Tiger Flame Maple (Including headstock), 3-ply mahogany set neck (Heelless), ebony fingerboard. The body, neck and headstock are all bound.
Twin humbuckers with independent volume and Westones own (And as far as I know unique) PEQ tone controls. (Wind it down from the center detent and it's a normal tone control giving apparent bass boost by filtering out the treble  so winding it up from center gives a sound like variable coil tap)

There are two (Possibly 3) versions -

Version 1 (1982-3)

Early models have a script logo on the headstock. Available in Sunrise Sunburst and Antique Cremona
