Spectrum S


Matsumoku, Early 1985 to ?


This model seems to be an “orphan”. It is a does not appear in any of the catalogues or price lists that we know of.

This is one of the first Spectrum series without a trem system, and some models may have even been made without a coil tap.

Of the two we know of, one is black the other white. It is not known if other colours were available.


  • body: solid Maple
  • neck: Maple, satin black finish
  • two humbuckers
  • 3-way switch
  • single volume and tone controls
  • fixed bridge with through body stringing
Thanks to Ebay member designergirl_99 for the photos and info of this black example.
Apparently this one does not have a coil tap switch:

This white model owned by Westone Forum member, Barry, does have a push/pull coil tap on the tone control.
