1985 Spectrum SX in the UK.

Post by DuoFuzz on Fri Aug 28, 2009 7:17 pm

We have a very red Spectrum SX HERE. The red lacquered maple neck always look weird to me, but completely original ! £29.99 is a good starting price but the seller does say it is in a used condition.
Not sure what he means when he says it's fitted with an Aria Pro II type humbucker. Suspect

I love my Spectrums.
But I don't particularly like the coloured fretboards either. It's one Mats design element that just doesn't work for me.

Really?! Shocked I'd crawl over your dead, maggot-infested body for a blue MX/SX, eh!! Very Happy They do it for me, they really do!

That looks re-eally, really nice, too - stringlocks are all there, knobs.... and the p'up looks like an MMK 45 from this remove too!! Someone buy it!!

Whoa this one looks nice, exactly my one.
And not so battered as my one. Plus all parts attached, trem arm and looking nuts.
My one had lost all that, so I had to order it from SPARES. Thanks for that service by the way.

The starting price is just a bargain.

The sound combination from the SX are really nice.
Two push-pull potis to split the humbuckers and a 5 way switch.

And the 80's are quite popular at the moment, so it's the perfect guitar.

Someone go for it, you will be not disappointed! Cool

I was asleep at the wheel too No

I'd been watching this, just to see where it finished (no GAS tokens, but car is now legal Very Happy) and would have gone in at more than the winning bid. Joys of ebay, someone has got a bargain
