Bendmaster Deluxe Tremolo arm

Post by sdmfjoe5150 on Tue Nov 04, 2008 2:33 pm

I was given a red '87 Spectrum II XA1230 for my birthday. Its my first one but I just became aware of Westones about 6 months ago. Fabulous guitars. It is missing the washers and screws for the locking nut but can live with a Floyd replacement. I also need a tremolo arm. If anyone has pics of a trem arm that is out of the bridge or knows what type of arm the Bendmaster Deluxe needs please let me know. Twisted Evil Thanks!

G'day Joe - nice to see you here and as Polly says, you'll find most bits you need at the Spares, and the chap that runs the spares is a veritable font of info about Westones!
Bear in mind as well as the lock washers and screws you'll need a set of shims that go underneath the strings on the locking baseplate and Spares will make 'em for you or you could make 'em yourself...

...and go to the threads "Rolling your own ......." and away you go!

Please post pix of your instrument and let us know how you get on gigging with it; I enjoys my XA1630 lots onstage!!

RE Bendmanster parts

Post by sdmfjoe5150 on Wed Nov 12, 2008 8:17 am

Thanks for the heads up on the shims. I got with David and all my stuff should be on the way. Ill post pics when she is done. Her name is De by the way. I came across this guitar the same way Stevie Ray did his famous "Lenny". I saw it in a pawn shop but didnt have the money for it and my wife could tell how excited I was to find one. Long story short she buys it without me knowing and gives to my tech who completely refurbs it minus the parts it was missing. Im talking fret dress and polish, pots lubed, you name it. I own a '78 Les Paul Std., a Fender Fat Strat with the Lonestar upgrade, an ESP Kirk Hammett signature (its an Eclipse with an old Gibson Melody Maker style headstock, a Floyd Rose and EMG's), and now an '87 Westone Spectrum II XA1230 (affectionately known as De). Kirk is my hot rod but my Spectrum is by far the fastest player. I sure do hope to find some more of these gems.

God bless.

Hi, I'm new on the forum, but I saw this post from a Google search. As the link ("here") above is dead, can anyone point me to where I can find those parts?

Many thanks, and I'm looking forward to this forum! Very Happy

Lou
