This "S" model is the only Spectrum without a tremolo bridge, and she still has her original SwitchMaster knobs Spectrum S -1985 (CAN) Icon_cheers.

Only one fuzzy pic but she appears to be in decent shape.

Seller says it is an '85 build so that likely means she has UBC pups which are low output and not much use in a performance situation, but can easily be swapped out.

The asking price is ridiculous but it seems to be the way prices for Westones (and all Mats guitars) are going these days.
The seller might be open to negotiation?

CAD$800 includes a Peavey practice amp, and guitar case (not known if original)

Silly price, I agree… I paid a little more than that for an APII PE-Supra not long ago, which is,I think you’ll agree, much more Matsumoku for the money.
Still… I’ve not seen very many Spectrum Ss for sale in 20 years or so…

I paid $150 for my white S in 2009 so this asking price is making my head spin, just a little. Confused 2

And yes I have only seen about a half dozen others in the 15 years since.

Well the seller must have heard us, 'cuz he's lowered the price...a lot!

NEW LINK
New Listing has it as CAD$275!!

And still includes a case, and the Peavy amp!

Damn, now I'm tempted, even though I have one already. Naughty
