Hi guys,

This is a pretty nice guitar but some of the details are incorrect . .
The model is a TST-55 SO (Sonic Blue) not Daphne Blue. The wiring, pickups and scratchplate are all 100% ; the nec ...

PostForum: Vintage (Older than 1985)   Posted: Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:12 pm   Subject: Is It a ST60 or a ST80?
OK cool,
It should have either 'E' or 'V' stamped grey bobbin pickups - most likely 'E'.
Check the body and neck stamps are the same and the neck should have a Rosewood fingerboard to match the L13 ...

Hi guys,

Woah guitar hiro, TE-75NR would be extremely rare - even rarer than the ES-200 considering it was never made . . .

This is not a TE-85 or at least the body isn't.
