1984 ST-60?

Post by Hayden » Wed Sep 03, 2014 7:12 pm

Hi everyone, I'm relatively new here, was just wanting a bit of help confirming the date and model of my Goldstar Strat.

My guess it is a 1984 ST-60 with the rosewood fretboard and E Pickups but would appreciate your guys input. Everything appears to be completely original including the Final Prospect saddles.

It has "1 = 3 = GS X" under the pickguard in the electrics cavity. Anyone know what the X stands for?
It has "1 = 2" under the neck pickup cavity.

The serial number is: L16197

Can I assume that the 60 sticker on the back of the neck is a dead giveaway that it is an ST-60 model?

Here are some pics:

Appreciate any help :-)

Cheers,

Hayden

i'd say you are spot on with your assumptions.
no idea what the x stands for, export maybe?
think it's a copy of a 1963 strat. 8)
nice one, and welcome.

Nobody seems to know what "X" means - it's mostly on ST60/65's. Some ST80's have "A".

Could be production line perhaps?

Thanks heaps for the confirmation! I thought I was on the right track with it and yes, the X is a bit of a mystery! Cheers.
