Hi mdvineng - thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like a very reasonable guess to me.

Hi 3rdstone, Thanks for your reply - hopefully someone will be able to let me know what the Y stands for . In terms of pics, it will be a few weeks before I can do this - the guitar is at my techs having a few things done to it, and I'm off on holiday for a couple of weeks so will have to wait until...

What does this mean?

Morning all, I hope everyone is good. I’ve just picked up another Goldstar sound - an ST65 in metallic gold. I believe it to be from 1984 based on the serial number - L12308. I know this in itself doesn’t indicate a date but I have an article which says that any numbers which fall within the range o...

Hi bluejeannot,

Thanks for your comments. I take it Tokai did produce springy’s with maple necks and 11 hole pickguards then? I assumed their maple neck guitars only came with 8 hole guards - you learn something new every day!

Thanks.

Thanks brokentoes. Yes, she’s unbelievable. I’m still amazed that these can be had for such reasonable money. A very dear friend of mine has all manner of custom shop Fender and Gibson guitars, but always ends up playing either his Gold Stars or his Love Rocks, and this guy - probably like so many f...

Hi felixcatus,

Thanks for your reply. It’s colour code is GS so I guess it’s Golden Sunburst. It looks 2 colour to me, but it could have been 3 but faded with age. Also, I’m slightly colour blind so I may not be seeing any subtle tones.

Thanks,

Karim.

Hi Len, Thanks for responding. Glad to see I was on the right lines anyway. Really doesn't bother me what model it is (50,60, 80 etc), as the thing sounds so good and feels so nice - it puts a bigger smile on my face than many other guitars costing 5 times as much! So, in all probability an ST-60 wh...

Help identifying Springy Sound

Hi All, Fist time poster so please be gentle.. I have just purchased what I believe in part to be a 1980 Springy Sound. I say 'in part' as I'm not sure that the neck is original. I have added the pics to an album in iCloud which hopefully you can access below: https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0Y...
