pickup, oiled neck. (Info from the August 1986 US pricelist - this

Westone X125 (Spectrum Basic)
It's name in the August 1986 pricelist is 'Spectrum Basic' -
this name was later used for the X120 (AKA Spectrum I and Spectrum
Similar shape to the 1985-6 Spectrum guitars,
but without the bevelled edge where your right elbow rests. Single
bridge mounted humbucker, volume control (No tone control) and Fender
style tremolo. The spring cover is missing on this one and the tremolo
arm isn't original - unusually all 5 trem springs are present so the
trem action can be adjusted to be as light or heavy as you want.
The X125 appears in the 1987 German catalogue. The specifications are
- Maple body, Hard Maple oiled neck, Rosewood fingerboard,
graphite nut, 65cm (25.5 inch) scale 22 frets. Strat-type trem, chrome
hardware, single volume control and a Magnaflux I UBC pickup, available
only in black.
Given that it has a UBC pickup, which were designed to overcome
the inherent 50% volume drop when an ordinary humbucker is coil-tapped,
I don't really understand why there's no coil tap switch, unless they
were trying to produce an entry-level instrument as cheaply as possible.
