Just acquired this delight from the US last week, gorgeous Candy Apple Red with matching headstock, as far as I've been able to establish, it's just missing the original brass knobs and possibly neck plate (chrome 'L' serial no. fitted). It did come with its original brass tipped trem bar though. The paint is in excellent condition, the gold plating is worn, revealing the solid brass below. Got to say that brass bridge assembly (sustain and resonance heaven) and the 'U' p/ups definitely sets it way apart from my stock '80 ST80 Springy - not crazy about the 'E's, rather 'thin' for me. If any member has old brass parts in their parts drawer that would return it to stock, and willing to sell, that would be great - I'm not going to loose any sleep over it if not - its a great guitar.
