Hmmmm... does it now?! What about the 12 string that we know exists?? And how about the Electra Phoenix range which are pretty much twins of the Spectrums?? Laughing


How's that GAS now?? Laughing

Anyway, my green eyed jealousy aside... great effort; now show us the family!! Very Happy

Update on the FX. Picked it up from the Tech at the weekend. It now plays like a new guitar. If you live in the Glasgow area I would highly recommend "Fine Tuning Guitar Repairs" in the West End of Glasgow- sam@fine-tuning-guitars.com

Here is the guitar (not a great photo!)




And here it is with the "family" arranged rather artistically I hope you would agree.





The Electra Westone is masquerading as a GT.

very nice collection.. I see you have an '84 Spectrum II in there, I own one but I don't own or have never played a '85/86 Spectrum, I've got serious GAS for one though...besides the shape etc are the later ones much different playing wise?

We've got a bit of a discussion going here in the forum about the changes in the Westone logo. In that light it's also interesting to note above the variations in colours being use as well: all red; all yellow; red and yellow. No wonder there was so much brand confusion with Mats guitars. A similar problem existed with the Vantage line which changed logotype and colours a few times, and to a lesser extent the Aria Pro II's. Neutral

bowenjaybee,
Your question regarding how the Spectrum 11 compared to the later Spectrums led to a bit of "blind testing" and after much comparing I can conclude that there ain't any discernible difference except the Spectrum 11 weighs a few grammes lighter than the rest of the bunch. (Wife's kitchen scales have never had to weigh guitars before.)

Corsair,
Got fed up waiting for a GT to become available and had to settle for the Electra Westone. The S seems to be rather hard to find as well.

Westbone,
Unfortunately a combination of rubbish camera and low roof resulted in a not too symmetrical aerial photo. Will have to try harder in future! (or borrow my daughters SLR.)

Thanks for the comments.

Fraser.

Stick'em in the garden and hire a crane or hot air balloon for a day. If the guys that do crop circles can fool the unthinking, then a bit of symmetry from you is not too much to ask for!

Take care and happy hunting, but you had better pee scent your ground 'cause, I'm in the market right now ( but for Matsu's, rather than solely Westones )
