Bolt neck double cutaway with ash body, maple neck, chrome hardware, and three single coil pickups with 3-way selector and fat switch (middle on), brass knobs.

First Series:

X145R (S-S-S)(red metalflake)

X145B (S-S-S)(blue metalflake)

Second series:

X145VS (S-S-S)(vintage sunburst)

The first series was a deluxe version of the X130 with special metallic paint and black pickguard like the X130, brass nut, trem bridge, 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- no pickguard, it had pickups mounted flush against the body, like all Phoenix models to follow. It was the only model in all the Electra Phoenix/ Westone Spectrum series to be available in a sunburst finish.

What is this one I have with a sunburst finish? It sure isn't the X145 from everything that I've read.
