Westone X5RD Monark
Now do you see what I mean about Westones often being ugly?

Yes, this is another Japanese Matsumoko-made Westone guitar from the 1980s. I'd guess mid-80s because it seemed that about then every guitar manufacturer was trying to come up with some twist of their own on the V-design. This Westone X5RD Monark looks like a sawn-off Flying V, or else an inverted Jackson Randy Rhoads style. In keeping with guitars of this ilk it is very very pointy; it's another one you could impale yourself on.
