    I don't really like natural finish but this one is nice...

    Too bad for the Us missing and maybe the tuners which are unusual (changed?)

    Very early model, I'd like to see the neck pocket/neck butt.

    Edit: I have just read the tuners are changed indeed.

    Yeah, very early ! Probably right just at the turn of 1978, don't you think ? 1977 springies are almost as rare as Miley Cyrus neurons anyway.

    There's also a 2TS in NYC with the # 281 on eBay right now.

    Think so, yes.

    From what I've heard/read, ST production began late/end 1977?
    I only know of two '77 (serial#) Springy's 'mentioned', ever!

    This serial screams : "there wasn't any numbering reboot at the beginning of 1978 !"

    I hear you :thumb: ;), and also notice the neck pocket screw holes, no machine tool marks!

    Define "the beginning of 1978".

    I know your post was not addressed at me, nevertheless :whistling: 'my' :p;) definition would be; start of 8000XXX serial numbers.

    Yes but 1978 started Jan 1st, the UK tax year started April 5th. Both are correctly considered the beginning of 1978. o_O

    I also 'like to think' ;) that Springy Sound (pre-)production started somewhere around November/December 1977. Which means a fortieth Springy anniversary could be roughly around now!

    The year 1978 can only begin the 1st of January or I missed something all those years !

    Tax year or not, the 4th of April 1978 was in 1978.

    My life started in April 1978, not before, that's for sure !
