Seems that '86 models had the crap pups.

Maybe as Mats were winding down the business they sourced cheaper options. Cost cutting etc.

I'm not a Spectrum fan and only have a few that are kept because they're almost mint. All have MMK45's. and are pre '86.

It has ubc pickups with rail/blade style pole pieces on one end and regular poles on the other of each pup... These seemed to sound pretty good in the vid and were referred to as " the last generation ubc's." Did westone actually fix the ubc design in the end and make good ones right before they went out of business??? I'd love to know the story of those things, they look super cool.

The humbuckers with one blade pole-piece are the so-called 'Magnaflux II UBC' type, as also fitted to my Pantera X300, which are actually just tarted-up MMK45s... (which is why they sound so good!) Smile

Well getting back on topic, the guitar arrived today. Great condition, although missing trem bar... Also, has the right mmk45's in it. Super happy. Will get pics if you guys want them.
