Not Electra's, but close cousins...

1985 Westone Spectrum FX, the Alpha-Male of Westone's!

Candy Apple Red with black stripe. With Scooped heel (looks like a neck through, these are the most desirable FX's to have, the other style of FX's are set neck with block heel)
$240 for the guitar alone
$275 with case (the case alone is worth $70, almost brand new and it's a locking case)
shipping will be actual cost.

Overall in great shape, see the pics. Bumps and bruises, yes, it wasn't babied all its life unfortunately. Previous owner had the the original electronics removed and a 5-way switch installed. I disconnected the five way switch and found an original Westone FX electronics assembly, the push-pull pots already wired up, on Ebay. I bought them and installed them. Now it's just like factory again! Those electronics are original Westone with the 3 push pull pots for 18 tones. I also reconnected the 3 way pickup selector (that switch had been replaced by previous owner but functions flawlessly). Black stripe is worn in places, back is worn off a little as many of them are. Frets are in wonderful condition (that's important). Bottom line, everything now works like the day it was produced at Matusmoku. Great, great guitar. Sparkles when good and clean!

Sounds absolutely fantastic. These things are tone monsters! Best neck humbucker I've ever heard.

Second guitar...

1984 Quest Atak 1
Black on black.
for anyone on the forums here...
$150 including chipboard case (shipping actual cost).



100% stock, original bridge pickup is back in the guitar (original knobs in the case). Solid mahogany with maple neck. Wonderful condition, see photos. Rare bird. No issues. Some scratching on back, minor dings around the guitar. Screw head off of the one tuner, see photo. Matsumoku made, really nice original design from Quest. Reminds me of the Dean Bel Aire but more sleek. Played this out on gigs, performed very well.
