The early TE/ST 80/100 V-neck shapes fit me well, hence the reason I'm looking for another Springy.

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.

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