I find the ST-80 necks a bit too small (combination of V-shape and medium neck depth), and the Greco SE-800 have stupid fat V-necks. It's all personal, but just mentioning that IMO people are overlooking the Esparto strats too much.


The early TE/ST 80/100 V-neck shapes fit me well, hence the reason I'm looking for another Springy.

Yeah, it's all habit / preference I guess. I find the necks on my TE-80 and ST-80 definitely too thin, so I keep them in spite of that because I really like them otherwise.

Here's another one. Shame about the decal, but at a BIN of around 650 USD pretty reasonable.

Happy wife, happy life. Perhaps she's so smitten with the renovation that she might let it happen?


Good call Marcus, missus is fine with it. She didn't even ask which one is gonna make room for the new one!
