    Does anyone know anything about these? I found a left handed one online and I'm curious.
    Were these made in the Japanese factory?
    What's a decent price?
    How's the quality and sound?
    Any known issues or anything specific to look for, good or bad?
    Overall perceptions?

    Thanks

    I have a Westone LX... I love it.

    Matsumoku Fujigen... Electra/Westones were made in Japan until about '87/88 I think... Fantastic build quality, cool look, great sound. If the price is reasonable, there's nothing to be afraid of... Check out the Electra/Westone Club here on TB. :bassist:

    I've played my friend's Spectrum of and on for over 20 years. They're super solid basses without deadspots. I remember the rosewood fingerboard being especially nice.
