I think he is correct in it being a 1989 model.
That means made in Korea.

These have nothing in common with the Japanese counterparts
as far as quality goes.

Take a close look behind the neck by the plate. It looks cheap.

Wait for a real Westone. They come up often.

Somebody correct me if I don't have it right but I think the cut off time
was around 87-88 when the Japan factory put out their last guitar.

The Westone script could be a give away too.

It is almost identical to the Spectrum II from the 1989 Westone catalogue, except the script on the headstock is different.
