Sigmania said:felixcatus, would you call that neck shape a "C"?
My 1984 ST70 Goldstar has a neck similar to yours.
My 1981 ST70R Springy has more of a "U" shape neck.

this web site will offer the reader some interesting info :wink:
You could do a LOT of digging here 8)
make sure not to miss the 1964 Firemist Gold Strat with the maple cap neck & gold hardware; it's about 2/3rds the way down the page.
This extremely rare Strat, serial # L47091, is also featured on pages 32 & 33 in TGOS by Yasuhiko Iwanade. 8)
I guess that right there would be the "1964 Rare Model"!
Thanks for that amazing link!
