This was labeled a Westone but I don't recognize it. Which Model or maybe it's not a Westone?

The right side horn resembles a Pantera but the left side?

Please ignore the neck which is not original.

Few more pics. Metal neck plate doesn't resemble MIJ Westones but maybe a later MIK?

Interesting.  You're the 2nd person to say that.  I messaged the owner on Facebook Marketplace that it's likely a Aria Pro II & he said it looks like a spectrum to him so wasn't going to change his ad! LOL

You're on to something there Mike.
I think you're right, the body is at least one of the "Cats" :
Aria Pro II RS StrayCat, RS WildCat, or RS BobCat.

There are catalogues available over at the Matsumoku Guitar Gallery but they're not the easiest to negotiate. I was only looking at one and there was no HSS model that I could locate. YMMV LINK
