Merci Volker,
this is exactly the stuff i require.

As springys only had 2 styles of pickup (U & E) it is easier to tell the model this way.
The Blonde finish is pretty rare too

regards
Peter Mac

Hey guys
thanks for the info,

so far the response has been slow - if we are to get a proper understanding of the codes and serial # then i need as many guitars as possible listed.
I am concentrating on the 7-digit serial numbers to ascertain a Year.
SilverStars are the only "Fender" model that continued with this 7-digit system after 1982 so they are of special interest, but certainly the Springys are important to cross reference the markings.

Hope more members will get on board with this

Peter Mac

Hi Peter
1981 Springy ST55n
1) 1024158
2) 1=3 (no additionnal letters)
3) 12=5 (no additionnal letters)
4) U stamped pickups
5) maple, with skunk stripes

I can send pictures on request

*after removing the neck lately, i need to correct something,
digits on the neck are in fact 12=5 and not 1=3 like the numbers in body cavities as previously stated.
sorry my mistake

Thanks Marc,

every little bit helps.

Hope to hear from Breezy and SilverStar owners. These stats are important to create the pattern overall - not just with Springys.

The lettering is going to play an important factor.

regards
Peter Mac

I also sold an ST80 to Ken and an ST50 to Belgium. If the new owners agree I'll post the details too.

I'll post more Springy details when I've been to the cellar.

Cheers. Rup
