Real Springy Sound?

Post by GreenFloyd » Tue Nov 03, 2015 7:04 pm

Hello everyone!

I've been trying to figure out whether this guitar is a real Springy Sound or not, but I need some expert opinions. Seller says the pickguard screws, the tremolo black plate and the tremolo bar are not original, but new. Could someone help me?

Thanks! :)

Looks legit from the photos (L serial number on plate, knob/p'up cover color, tuners, etc) and a nice one too.

Only way to really confirm are photos of the innards (bottom of pickups and electronics, body cavity stamps and neck butt and pocket)

Yeah, that's what seemed strange to me! You're looking at this one, right?

Other site, but same guitar. Price seems almost too good to be true.

Yes, that's why I was asking about its authenticity. What do you think?

I agree with Marcus here, "only way to really confirm are photos of the innards".

PS if I would be sure I were to receive the guitar as pictured for the price they're asking, I would dare to take the risk.
But that's just me, it's really up to you.

Alright, I'll go for it then. I'll post some pictures of the innards once I receive it. Thanks for your help :wink:

Yup, that was exactly what I thought so that's why I asked him some days ago to reserve it :P

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. :)
