Nabbed this old '80's Westone Prestige 250 recently. Saw it in a shop, plugged it in and played it for 2 hours. LOL The pickups actually sound really good. The coolest feature are the tone knobs. They have a center detent. Roll it left and it works as a regular tone control, roll it right and it is a variable series/parallel for each pickup. Really great idea, it was even patented at the time. These cost as much as a new Les Paul at the time, so there are not many out there. Build quality is really tight.
