Westone Spectrum, £50 BIN!

Recommended Posts

I’d say £50 would be £40 too much. Is that a Jim deacon neck on a west one body? 🤮

I think you'd be wrong, considering it's fitted with a Schaller 3D bridge that would be at least £60 new. Westone Thunder 1A body & electronics means it's £100+ worth of parts, even if the neck's junk.

Spotted this as it's local to me so crops up on my 5 mile bass search, noticed the junker neck but not the Schaller bridge. There was a black Westone on my local FB (all original) for £35 not so long ago, don't need any more basses though so left it for someone else.

LOL, I remember noob guys calling them 'West One' when they first came out.

Could that be a DiMarzio Pickup? or are there any other P-bass pickups with hex adjustable poles?

Likely it's the standard unit - lots of early 80s MIJ stuff (including Westone) had DiM copies with hex poles. Easy way to check is whether the poles are metric or imperial.

There were Schaller hex-pole pickups too - had a dud one in a used bass a few years back.

Unfortunately it would cost me more than that in petrol to go and collect it.

Look original.

If that was closer to home, I'd have it just for the bridge and the active guts.
