Hi Mono,

Body : no doubt ST-80 - correct wood, correct route, correct code+position and it hasn't been fucked with. Good score. 4=5 GS A April build. Neck pocket has the type 2 screw pattern - all correct.

So neck code must be 4=? A to be totally correct. The reason I left ? is that the number can be sometimes a digit or two either way but still matched.
It must have allen key truss to be correct with serial number.

Keep us posted.

Peter Mac

There?s at least one example (with strong indications of an original body and neck ) with a difference of 23, on the digits behind the ?=?.

FWIW my ST80 (which I decided to keep) has the rosewood veneer fingerboard on a vee neck with a skunk stripe, exactly as described, with all other markings etc falling in line with what it is - an st80 I bought new in 1980.
And it still sounds and plays better than any 1980 Fender I have ever seen (grin)

given tht you have owned it since brand new in 1980.. do you if the body and neck codes match?? that would be incredibly useful information. also - pics!

Only just seen youre request for info on my 80. I am in france and the guitar is in UK. I will sort out details when I get back in early april, but there were photos on here when I was offering it for sale last year if you hunt in the classifieds.

Since that time, I received a LOT of education on Tokais, etc.
