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.
: post a comment. These guitars look great for first-timers..are they really great, or just OK?
This popular thread has been given its own page : Wesley 12 string
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!
Hi ; I just bought some Wesley guitars through ebay
They are stunning .... thats the only word i can use ; play perfectly ; intination very good ; and very well made ..
I am over the moon !! I bought a hollow body les paul copy and i cant put it down !!!
Be happy tp answer any questions anyone has
Can u help me on any info mation on the wesley bass, Pro Series B3504, cheers
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.
: Have anyone ever heard of Wesley guitars (Korean origin)?

What? import, import what? the primary outlet for these guitars is based in the uk goto www.guitarmogul.co.uk or www.wesleyguitars.co.uk
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.

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.
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.!
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!
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.
hiya, just found a UK dealer for these beautiful (and bizarrely INEXPENSIVE guitars)... check out www.guitarmogul.co.uk... he has just about every model in stock.
WHERE CAN I GET SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THESE GUITARAS IN EUROPE OR ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD??
This popular thread has been given its own page : old kraftsman guitars
I had a guitar given to me by a firend at church it is about
36in long or more, it is an acoustic with sun burst type finish
with the words global wrapped around the globe itis made in korea by
global musical instrument co ltd i would like to know if is worth anything and any other interesting info
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.

does anybody know these Agile Les Paul copies? they seem to be very good and very cheap. is there a webpage or a place to find them other than Rondo Music? USA
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.
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 like it :)
: does anybody know these Agile Les Paul copies? they seem to be very good and very cheap. is there a webpage or a place to find them other than Rondo Music? USA
i see a lot of them on ebay.com... real nice and cheap
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

ANY info on these guitars would be appreciated. I have one, an archtop jazz guitar, and it is a VERY nice guitar. Were these made just in Texas, as everybody seems to have come into theirs in or around Texas (as did I).
PLEASE, any information would be much appreciated.

I have a Brazos acoustic flattop which I purchased in the early 80's from a music store in DeBary Fl. I have not been able to find out anything about them. It is a model BA78.
If you have come across any info I would like to hear from you.

at a pawn shop for 160 bucks.it came with a custom made
wooden case.ihave seen another guy on the net with a strat-
style electric.apparently they made a lot more acoustics.
there is a river and a county named brazos in texas so i
think you are right about them being made there,contact me.
This popular thread has been given its own page : Re: Brazos guitars INFORMATION WANTED!!!
I recently got a Brazos guitars electric off of Ebay for cheap and did some serious web searching. Nothing. The underside of the tuners say "China" on them, and the guitar has that look to it, but all in all though, it's a pretty cool cheapo guitar. Pickups suck, but that can be changed.
Post some info if you have any.
I bought a Brazos in aa pawn shop in Illinois about 5 years ago. All solid wood acoustic with brass nut and bridge piece. It is the loudest acoustic I have ever heard and, next to my old Gibson J-50, is my favorite. It's a real gem
I have had a Brazos classical guitar since 1983. I believe that they were Japanese made. Mine has been an excellent guitar of the finest quality. I bought it in Odessa Texas, the retail price at the time was $1150.00 with a really nice case. Other than one more in the music store at the time, I have never seen or heard of another Brazos guitar.
my brazos acoustic has been a favorite for 20 years. sounds great, has brass bridge and nut. has been on a west coast tour with a dean markeley pickup in a rock ska band. started to come unglued in the 90's. a little glue and a lot of rope pulled it back together. it's got big frets, a great neck and a warm sound. bought in 1984, paid $200. one of my better investments
