The solder joints do look clean. The plastic switch is a VLX53 which google tells me is made by Gotoh. Fujigen used them in Ibanez/Squier/Fender guitars. Must be a replacement at some point. The wires were not clipped together either so I'd say someone's been in there and replaced the pots and switch. Nice to have a set of spare ST pots, didn't realise I had them.Interesting. Those are earlier pots. The switch is cheaper plastic too.
Wonder if someone used an old harness? Or maybe it was switched? Do the solder joints look clean?
What have seen is that they were phased out in 1986.
Here is a 1987 TST40 from the previous page with the pots I see from this period as well as the switch.
