Wesley

Have anyone ever heard of Wesley guitars (Korean origin)?

Re: Wesley

I own 9 guitars from Martins, Fender, Hofner and all points in between. I recently bought a Wesley Californian and it is superb. It looks fantastic, it plays fantastic and it sounds fantastic. I bought it on ebay for £77.00!!!
Check out their website www.wesleyguitars.co.uk

Re: Wesley

I bought a wesley as my first guitar. So i don't know a lot about guitars, but I can say build quality is good, it's nice and solid feeling.

If you doubt these guitars, check out the ebayer's feedback. Over 1500 feedback and ALL positive. Not even a neutral, let alone a negative. So I'd say that's a pretty good indication of what these guitars are like.

Guitar buffs

Can anyone who professes to know a lot about guitars post a comment. These guitars look great for first-timers..are they really great, or just OK?

Re: Guitar buffs

I've just bought a seven string Wesley electric on ebay. I had never heard of these instruments before and have been unable to find any other info (which is why I'm on this website). I 've been playing guitar for about 30 years and own 4 other instruments including a Strat and an Ibanez semi. I wanted a seven string but did'nt want to pay too much. I got the Wesley for £150 on Ebay and have had it for about 3 weeks nowand I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with it. It plays beautifully. I plan to change the pickups but apart from that I can't fault it and plan to take it out on a gig sometime soon : Can anyone who professes to know a lot about guitars post a comment. These guitars look great for first-timers..are they really great, or just OK?

Re: Guitar buffs

I have just recent bought a Jazz bass opy and have to say for £99 it is a stunner. The strings were a bit on the light side for my tastes but the finish is excellent (three colour sunburst) and I will be giving it a go at a gig in the next few weeks. Sounds good but for £99 it sounds brilliant. May replace the pickups sometime. Will probably replace the bridge sometime too, but i would if i had a fender!. Great.

Wesley 12 string

Wesley 12 string

This popular thread has been given its own page : Wesley 12 string

Re: Wesley

I got me a Wesley 5 string bass for xmas - very good guitar considering the price (£220) - has a nice walnut finish on it (it's a print, not actual walnut, but it still looks nice).

Just a few gripes about mine though:
I've just (as in 30 mins ago) snapped the nut - was just happily playing on it and 'pop' and broke just under the B string.
As I said above, the finish is just a print, covered in some kind of laquer - and it's started to come off (the laquer, not the print) - I'd advise people to consider re-laquering this model as the finish will be more durable, and last longer...it'll also give it a nice shine (which it currently lacks, very dull, almost plastic looking).

Overall though it's a sound bass...I've played many basses in the past (from Aria's, to Fender's, to Status) and I must say, this is the nicest bass I've ever played!

Re: Wesley

Hi ; I just bought some Wesley guitars through ebay

Re: Wesley

Can u help me on any info mation on the wesley bass, Pro Series B3504, cheers

Wesley AKA Prince

I bought one of these guitars from eBay (a metallic red M06 model) and was quite pleased with it. I was actually told (by John Rackman, the dealer you're all talking about) that these guitars are made by a factory in Indonesia.

At the time I bought mine they were going under the name Prince, and only later did it become Wesley.

A word to the wise - when I bought mine it seems the factory were not putting in the grounding wire from the electronics to the trem system/bridge. So at first mine was very noisy, but I added the wire myself (which did involve drilling a hole) and now it's fine.

I spoke to John about this and he agreed it was a problem, and that he was going to ask the factory to rectify this problem, so for all I know the current Wesley's might be just fine.

Re: HasGuitar vs Wesley

Hi,
Yes, I bought a guitar from wesley in UK it was total rubbish. Later I found another online guitar shop based in London UK called HasGuitar. I purchased one acoustic guitar and a electric guitar Les Paul gibson style. They are the best guitars I have ever played from www.HasGuitar.com if you want to buy guitar make sure you try them.

Wesley on E bay

To the last guy,
I bought my Wesley semi on UK E bay for £185.00 from the Guitarmogul, I have been playing for 22 yrs and I have been looking for a decent semi for 2 years, I have tried gibsons , epiphones and thought they were crap, and then I took a chance on E bay and bid for this one, never thinking I would get it for less than £200.00, I am so pleased it plays fantastic, I thought my Ibanez that I have been gigging for 20 years was good, but this makes my playing so easy. If you fancy go for it, I would be very suprised if you are dissapointed.

Re: Reply to Mike

Hi, Im based in the UK too. I spoke to the guy who deals in them on EBAY . Apparently they are his 'OWN' brand which he sources from Korea. He is in the throws of deciding which models to import to the UK depending on popularity.
The specs are really good for the price- even though they look a little 'Tanglewood' esque. Check out the thinline 335 copy. It has the same pickups and bigsby copy I have on an Elliot Easton GRETSCH (Korean made) and believe me GRETSCH are a lot more expensive, even for the electromatic cheaper models.
If ANYONE of you knows a shop where they have seen one let me know-as im a little reluctant to bid for something Ive never tried in a UK shop first-
anyone have any thoughts or comments let me know before I write silly cheques out.!

Wesley - pretty cool!

I got a Wesley M06 off ebay after a friend of mine got one. However, his was an ex review model and had been given a full setup - and it plays like a dream. I ordered myself one, and it is an absolute steal for the price, although the factory set-up is not brilliant (im putting it in for a proper one soon). Thoroughly recommended!

Re: Wesley - pretty cool!

I am the friend mike speaks of, and my model does indeed play perfectly. I have fitted a D-tuna (www.d-tuna.com) to it which is the most useful thing to come along in a long time (for a drop d junkie like myself anyway). However having to stabilise the bridge now means i can no longer pull the trem up - but who the hell cares, i love it and it was cheap.

Re: UK dealer

korean guitars

My son was given an old Bass during a holiday in France this year. It looks like a copy Fender Jazz Bass shortscale, sunburst finish. Stuck on label on back of head saying 'Made in Korea' and another on the plate for the screws holding the neck to the body saying 'pB-2'.
It needs work and the truss rod needs adjustment to get the neck straight and the action playable on all frets, but it is well enough made for a cheap guitar. Body is ply, but good veneer and good sunburst finish. Any info welcome.

Agile

Re: Agile

Does anyone know of a UK dealer for these Agile guitars? Stumbled across some on Ebay and they look really nice, unfortunately Rondomusic don't seem to the UK. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Agile

I have bought the Black Beauty with 3 humbuckers by Agile and its awesome. I have 2 Agile guitars now. I can only find them at Rondo also.

i see a lot of them on ebay.com... real nice and cheap

Re: Agile

I'm also looking into them. They look very neat. They are soild and have a set neck which is more than can be said for the Epiphone ones that were made before. If I find anything I'll let you know. If you found anything more please let me know also. Thanks.

Re: Agile

I just recently bought an Agile guitar from rondomusic.com cause I saw some of them up on ebay and I got curious. I bought the most expensive one on the website which was only $300 (it's the 2800 DLX Les Paul model) and all I got to say is that this thing is awesome. Their definitely better than any attempt that Epiphone makes at doing a LP, and the only thing that would keep me from saying that their not as good as the Gibsons is that the Gibsons have some really nice humbuckers.

Re: Agile

Pickups are relative to what style you're playing. For me (rock n roll style of playing), the alnico VII's in the 2800 match my playing style perfectly and I wouldn't want V's or anything other than what I got or ceramic magnets.

Brazos??

Hi,
Has anyone ever heard of this brand Brazos, or know anything about them? I've got a beautiful black Brazos guitar, and it sounds great, I just don't know anything about it.

Re: Brazos??

I have the BA78M Blonde 6 string acoustic with brass nut and bridge assembly. Bought in a Tampa music store for $125. including a hard shell plastic moulded case. The action is wonderfully low.The tone is bright ,loud and warm. And it plays better than my j-45. The price is right too. Got this great deal in 1989.
