Got a new to me Silver Star and I have a few questions - I know from the SN that it's a 1980 model, but which one? It's got the basic tuners and a three bolt neck, so does that make it an SS-36?

Also, if I want to upgrade the tuners, will any f-style do or are there specific ones that match the screw hole spacing?

Thanks!

Sounds about right. Seems to be in pretty good shape, nice.

Thanks Felixcatus. I'm really enjoying it; it's got a great neck and at 8.3 lbs isn't a boat anchor.

Any recommendations on tuner upgrades that fit the original screw holes?

Thanks, Mel

Really nice burst on that one, congrats!

Unfortunately I don't have the answers about the tuners, but would really like to know that for myself since I get GAS from time to time on a SS with a nice burst like this.
