Guitar is in very good condition, other than a few dings. 2,400 Euro shipped from Belgium if you wire me the money or 2,475 if you use Paypal. I bought this from Harold / Wulfman 4-5 year...

Wout, I tried to reply with and without the link and I still get some "authentication error". If you're interested, please email me at peterdemaeyer@yahoo.com. Thanks.

Are you still looking? I tried to PM you but keep getting an error message.

Thinking about selling this one and I'll be in Antwerp in a few weeks.

Well, I got outbid, but there's always another one. :)

I'm almost relieved, because it's really better to pay a bit more in a store and make sure it's a keeper.

Thanks. I'm heading there in a week. I might get it if he drops the price 10,000 Yen this week, else I rather save my luggage space for guitars I can try out in shops. Bidding on another guitar as we speak. Will update if I get it. ;)

Thanks for the replies. This one kind of speaks to me, with the fine-grained body wood and the way the 2T sunburst comes out, but many others do. I'll be headed to Japan early December so the hunt is on. :) Couldn't be any more different, but I'm pondering this one too. From all I've read, they're g...

Also interested in your thoughts whether that neck could have been refinished. Note the fingerprints around the stamped 80 (not conclusive, I know) and the darker areas around the edges, as if at least the front has been refinished or oversprayed (with a refret perhaps). For instance the edge near t...

Nice ST-80 with removed logo

http://page19.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x423524562 But the thing I'm curious about: in your mind, by how much should such a guitar be discounted for the missing logo? Or put another way, if you owned one without logo, how much would it be worth to you to have the original logo? With vintage re...

It's still pending, will do so when / if it finally goes through. :) I asked a friend in Japan to buy a guitar for me, as I'm heading there myself next month.

Looks nice. At that price I assume it's an ST-50 or ST-60, but still a very good deal.

I may be getting another coming my way too, but still to conclude the deal. :)

Here's another one. Shame about the decal, but at a BIN of around 650 USD pretty reasonable.

Yeah, it's all habit / preference I guess. I find the necks on my TE-80 and ST-80 definitely too thin, so I keep them in spite of that because I really like them otherwise.

My personal favorites, are the Esparto Strats. Most have nice medium-chunky C-profile necks and have nice boards. Also more resonant than the Tokai ST-80 with RW board that I had. But most are poly. I find the ST-80 necks a bit too small (combination of V-shape and medium neck depth), and the Greco ...
