Westbury Deluxe Series

The Deluxe had a hard maple body, carved top, ebony fretboard (rosewood on the W2210), deluxe tuners and two DiMarzio pickups. The bridge was oval and the back was contoured. There was also a version in black with active pickups (W2215A). The bridge pickup was a Dual-Sound DiMArzio Super Humbucker which included a micro-switch to go from "clean" to "dirty" (distortion), probably through the use of a coil tap. The neck pickup was either a PAF or Super Distortion (w/o dual sound), I am not sure.


Available in cherry sunburst (1, 2, 3, 4) (W2213), tobacco sunburst (W2212) (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and antique walnut (W2210) for $455 from about 1979 to 1982. Ivory (W2218) and black (W2215A) were introduced in 1980.
