Starting threads for each of the colors to document which models have been seen in each color.

This was a "special" color in 1982, so the price should be 5,000 yen higher than similar model in standard colors.

My 1981 ST70/75 MGR.

Possibly a demo or prototype. Hand painted code ("ST70S MG 068") & "D" stamp on fretboard.

(Note: Pickguard and knobs were changed)

Very cool color. I had read somewhere that D stamped Tokais designated them as guitars destined for the German market. I'll try and find where I read that.

Thanks. I had read on this forum that it may mean Demo.

I got that guitar from Japan.

Ah, well if you got it from Japan that probably eliminates that theory!
