Spectrum LX and GT...

Post by The Chad on Thu Jul 17, 2014 3:41 pm

I should know this  scratch  but what's the difference between the Spectrum GT and LX?  Is it only the trem?  I'm looking for a blue burst in one of the two, need to decide which.  Between the X198BB and the X185 blue burst. 

And regarding frets, are they the same between the GT and LX?

Looking at the respective specs on the website, it looks like the LX has a locking trem, whereas the GT just has a standard version (but I only had a really quick look, so could be way off the mark)

What I thought, too.  Someone will own both and chime in soon.  I think Damian has 16 of each.

I've got one of each - X198MB & X185BB - and yeah; bridge (& stringlock on the LX) is the only real difference. 
Bendmaster Precision (2 post floater) on the GT and Bendmaster FT on the LX.
I'll drag 'em out and have a good look at 'em, if you want?
