Re: Westbury guitars

Hi, Iam also looking for info on Westbury guitars, I have one - a small, sculpted solid body, dark brown with twin Di-marzio humbuckers, the usual tone and volume for each one and the old either one, tother or both crossover switch. There is also a row of three gold (colour) toggle switches that seem to do things with the tone but I'm not sure what. The only writing on it is Westbury and custom (on the truss rod cover) and a serial number which is 109057. Any other info gratefully accepted. I can supply a photo if I had an address.

G'day anyone,
I have a 1980 Westbury custom which I use all the time. Great guitar! If anyone out there knows of one going I'd like very much to know. Good playing to y'all, mick mepham

Re: Westbury guitars

I have a very similar guitar with neck through the body (Maple I think) The three toggle switches are phase switces and change the polarity of the pickup. You're right in that it affects the tonality quite a bit. I got the guitar when I was a about 14 and have used it off and on for years. Great sounding guitar. I've had it refretted a couple of times and always got great comments on it. :

Re: Westbury guitars

Hello Charlie or Pete:
I too never heard of Westbury and found one e-Bay today. I typed in "westbury guitars" on Yahoo and the first reference were you two on guitarsite. The second is a bunch of reviews (all excellent) on www.guitarist.net but the third one was on a Univox site http://www.univox.org/guitars/gtrlist.html
that lists all Westbury models, original prices, specs,
AND PHOTOS. They were made in the Motsumoku Japan factory (excellent quality) .....so were Aria, Westone,
Electra and others. I hope this helps you out.

Re: Westbury guitars

I have two Westbury standard guitars, and I´m willing to buy a few more, specially if they´re left handed.
They were made by the Arai company (the same company as made the original Aria guitars)in the years 79-82.
They came with one Dimarzio Super Distortion bridge pickup and a paf103 (I think) neck pickup.
Super guitars! It´s better then a Les Paul (but that of course is just my opinion!!!)
E-mail me if you got one!

I have a westbury standard and don't know what spefic model - it looks like a les paul; dark wood stain, has low action; double humbuckers- I got it second hand in 1983.

How do I find out what model it is? I might sell it, but want to know what it really is first.

yes, i own one

Re: westbury deluxe

Hi Jack,
I have owned a Westbury Delux from when I was about 13 years old. It still plays a blinding set. I am 42 now and i love as much as the day I bought it. I once lent it to a friend of mine whilst his Fender Strat was in the shop and after playing it in the specific gig I lent it for, he offered me £250 on the spot. That was about 22 years ago, but I could never part with it.

Re: Westbury guitars

I have a series 200. It's blue with a white pickguard.
Maple neck, original case pretty good condition. Is it worth anything? Will it pay my sons college tuition?

Re: Westbury guitars

This post is to inform everyone who is interested that as of November of 2003, “Westbury guitars Inc.” is back in business and will have their product out by mid summer. These guitars are high end but affordable and not made at Matsumoku or in Japan, rather, right here in the U.S.A.---100% U.S.A. made guitars. Other high-end guitars say they are made in the U.S. and indeed are not. It is my obligation to expose companies like Brian Moor and PRS who have their guitars made over seas in Korea and assembled here in the U.S. and are legally allowed to put the U.S.A. stamp on their product. There may never be an Uncle Mat again but there will always be an Uncle Sam and Westbury Guitars Inc. realizes this and that’s why there will be a 100% USA made stamp on the new line of Westbury Guitars. (Not at all affiliated with Univox)
Prototypes are being made in PA and LA and Westbury Guitars Inc. is very close to Ok-ing the design and will begin production in April. Low serial numbered models can be ordered through www.westburyguitars.com and the site will also have a ton of information on the vintage models.
Westbury Guitars Inc. P.O.Box 10582 Westbury N.Y. 11590-3226 info@westburyguitars.com

Westbury Guitars

I own Standard model, pretty beat up and 1 p/u replaced, got it for $200 in 2007. Also bought a nice sunburst Deluxe model in '07 for $300. Last year picked up a white Deluxe with the 3 mini-toggles for $275. And my favorite is an '81 Custom S (aka Super Custom) which I bought 2nd hand from a guy back in '83 for $250. These Custom S models are the top of Westbury line, and in good shape can go for $600-1000 now.
