ST 120

Post by thechadz03 » Sun Oct 26, 2008 9:51 am

Has anyone got an ST 120? I've never seen one and am interested in seeing what they are like and what you think of them. They seem to be rarer than LS200s! Cheers.

They're so rare that I thought an ST100 was the top of the range. :o What do you get with an ST120 that an ST100 doesn't have?

The German text also confirms the ST-100 and 120 both as 1-piece (sen?)ash bodies.

It looks like you get a highly figured neck and body. This guy claims to have one:

Presumably you get gold hardware. So it's basically a prettier version of the ST80, but not any better in real terms. So you paid 50% more (when it was new) for a one piece body, gold parts, & some figured maple?

I think I'm happy with my ST80!
