Lovely guitar
But it's a Springy, not a Goldstar.

But that's a Springy, of course. Doesn't mean there was a Goldstar ST70 - there's no mention of an ST70 in the 1985 catalogue.

I also have a Goldie that has a 6-digit serial, and therefore according to the identification guide would be an ST-70, but it is clearly an ST-50, going by the spec:

Black finish
Veneer type RWB
3-pc body
Final Prospec saddles, STB & deluxe tuners
"II V" (Vintage II) pickups

Nothing here to suggest anything other than a stock ST-50, except, of course, the 6-digit serial on the neckplate. Probably another case of Tokai using up spare neckplates, or just running out of L-stamped ones during a production run (did somebody suggest this earlier, or was that in a different thread?).

I suppose this adds a bit of curiosity value to the guitar, but no material value - it's an ST-50 by spec.

I'm thinking about selling it at the moment, and if I do, I won't be advertising it as an ST-70, though I'm sure some sellers would!

I have seen a few RW board Goldies for sale with 6 digit serials, but that otherwise looked like ordinary ST50s. Since serial numbers were just decoration on Goldies (i.e. they didnt help to date them) I don't imagine that Tokai would have worried too much if a few RW ones went out without an L number.
