    I have the switch tip, it had fallen off earlier in the evening and I'd put it in my pocket. Its been on my ST54 for 22 years. :p

    Refret has been beautifully done.

    And refinish is almost over ; )

    Ok.

    I think mine may be replacements too (kulson with one line/space like tokai originals, but nothing written on them. Deshined look.) But can't find anything like them on the market...

    Yes that sounds more like you. ST100s had a factory fitted brass nut? Well I've learned something new today!

    I had a green Goldstar ST55 (now sold) with a brass nut & I honestly can't say that it made any difference.

    I'd go for Gotoh SD91s, either nickel or for just 25% extra, aged nickel :)

    Nut changed for 'set up' reasons, no major influence on sound, at least that's what the luthier told me.

    The original brass nut was a little out of spec (worn/altered?) for achieving a precise set up, so he called me up and asked me if he could change it.

    Actually I use it to play cricket.

    My concern on that matter is purely scientific.

    (I felt for a moment like if I asked Ron Kirn if nitro sounds better than poly ; )

    I'll swap it you for a rather nice vintage cricket bat.
