    Hate to see her go, but I love to watch her leave.

    That’s one of the most beautiful guitars I’ve seen!

    This would be the clear winner if only it had more toggles...:p

    I think Tosca has my vote on this. Now if you had a matching cocobolo Boogie to go with it (and several strong roadies to carry it).....

    There’s really only one amp appropriate for this guitar...it’s a Boogie...but snakeskin, not Cocobolo.

    Does Boogie make cocobolo cabinets? I’ve always wanted one of those wood & wicker ones

    I haven’t noticed it. I have walnut and bubinga cabinets from them.

    I have a `96 Santana 1, a Santana Brazilian Ltd and a Westy. The one I like the least is the Westy. The S1 is my favourite.

    Impressive pile of guitars!

    Out of the ones I own, just purely based on tone, I’d rank it West Street with 57/08+59/09, KL33, Santana, and then West Street w WSL pickups.

    The WSL pickups (un-potted HFS and RP) are HOT as all hell, and require lowering quite a bit IMO.

    I think if I had a big influx in cash, I’d find me a Westy
