Need help to date my Spectrum Series II

Post by vagabund on Mon Jul 20, 2015 11:15 am

Hello,

I have a Westone Spectrum Series II und wish to know when she was made. And if she was made in Japan or in an
other Country.   Sadly i can not find a serial Number at the Headstock or the neckplate (there is´ noch neckplate).

Unfortunatly I am noch able to post Links for the first 7 days ....  Sad

Can anybody help?

Thanks!

the late model Spectrum guitars were made in Korea. the serial number was on a paper sticker on the back of the headstock. most seem to have been removed by owners or just came off on their own over time.
is yours similar to this one?

Hi and thands for the answer. The Headstock is´ not reverse. And there are 3 switches for the PU´s (2x on/out for the SC and on SC/out/Humbucker. The Body also has a binding.

okay, more like this one maybe…
(not original knobs)

it might be a Corsair
that is the '88 catalog,
in '89 they made the same model with the bevel heel instead of the neckplate. and some other color options, as well.
in the catalog pics, the neck has 24 frets, and also a different tremolo

does your neck have 22 frets or 24?
does your guitar have the mid-shape tone circuit?

On the headstock is writen "Westone Spectrum Series II".  The neck has 24 frets. The Humbucker has the same cover then the Single Coils.  Mid-shape circuit?  One of the toneknobs? I ´ll check. (this guitar is given to me from a friend of me).

SP6112 perhaps?

That's pretty, mate; nice one! The stringlock isn't OEM and you're missing the Allen key holder on the back of the headstock; no big deal!

That's right, Korean made, and made very well too! 
I had a SP5112 which was battered and I regret selling it more than any other guitar, they're not particularly valuable or highly regarded but they do have a certain magic.  

If youeever feel like moving it on, I'd be interested Smile 

Nice guitar, enjoy,
