Hi all. I'm confused as to how to tell a ST60 from a ST80 Springy, since they could both come with the same "E" pups and the same colour finish. Would the only way be to check for nitro ?? Would this year still have its fretboard stamp ?? Help me out if you can.

Thanks.

I spoke with this guy and that's a very nice guitar which is now really at such a fair price I can't believe it's still for sale.

1980 still had the fretboard stamp, to me that one looks like an '81 ST60 - MMR as in the bottom left corner of this catalog page;

I forgot about the V necks Marcus. J.E.M. I didn`t know what to make of it because i found that both came in the same finish. Tokai`s are hard sells here, so i`m not that surprised it has not sold.

Thank you both for your replies.

"A" mark on pick guard indicates higher (ST80>) end model.
