The first series was a deluxe version of the X130 with special metallic paint and black pickguard like the X130, brass nut, brass hardtail bridge with strings through body, brass knobs.

Most had a brass '1982 commemorative anniversary' plate on the back of the headstock with an additional serial number.

The second series was almost a different model entirely- instead of a pickguard, it had pickups mounted flush against the body, like all Phoenix models to follow:

In 1985 the third X135 series appeared with a Bendmaster bridge, under the name Westone Spectrum ST (standard), first only in black, then in 86 red and white were added. Through these three series the X135 became the longest-running model of the Phoenix/Spectrum family.
