This one is USPS and yes, that's usually not too bad, but it's still higher!
UPS has good service but charges higher shipping rates and has terrible brokerage fees; $50 on the Ovation I got from Florida!

Back to the question....

I know they are like hen's teeth, but the x70 is a solid guitar. Easy to play, too.

If that someone wants to start collecting Westones - go for the high end models now, before they get too rare and expensive.

We're assuming for the purposes of discussion that we do know what style they want to/are able to play and that they have come to you for advice on buying a guitar like yours!!

Nope, you might be assuming that, don't think anyone else has since no-ones said anything about particular styles/types of music. Seems more of a list of 'I like this model' or 'these ones are cheap' - as you said in your first post, you'd recommend the Spectrum ST as common and affordable.
I couldn't make that assumption anyway, tastes too eclectic... and too many guitars for anyone to say I want one like yours...but if I had to pick guitars for different styles...

Hard rock - almost any Thunder
Hard Rock with dive bombing - Spectrum FX
Blues - unknown model 8
Pink Floyd - Concord III
Jazz - Session II
Anything at all - 84 Spectrum III, modded so the neck and bridge pickups can be on together.

Basses -
For just about anything, Thunder II (Passive) or Concord II (Two pickup version), or Super Headless X910. If you want really floor shaking dub bass, go for the Super Headless.
