Well keep in mind that the main feature of the West Coast sound isn't just sines on their own. Ideally it would be a sine with wavefolding, multiplying, FM, or some other form of mutation that adds grit to the waveform. Modulating that modulation so that it settles down into a sine is where West Coast style comes into play. Also, LoPass Gates are important for the sound of West Coast because they filter down the harmonics while closing the amplifier.
