Moon ST-230OX (VanZandt/PGM/K.Nyui)

Post by wulfman » Fri Nov 28, 2014 10:23 pm

Ishibashi is having a 10% off sale on used stuff this weekend so I grabbed a Yamaha THR-10C and a Moon strat. Moon has been going since 1979 under the PGM company and luthier K Nyui. (http://www.moon-guitar.co.jp)

The strat looks like it will be similar to VanZandts with nitro finish and clay dot inlays. Nice looking board and 1-piece body too.

This was one of two ST-230OX models. The other one is here if anyone is interested. Also on sale....

That's a beauty, I can definitely see the attraction.

I don't post NGDs much and this is more a New Purchase Day, but I made the plunge too, via a friend in Japan. Not sure from when this is, but it looks like an early one with some nice wear on it. 1980s if I have to guess. Anyone out there with ideas how to date these? Once I get it I'll post some more pics, also of the innards.
