It wouldn't have been my first choice either but it was a suprise present, so I wasn't complaining. Funny thing is I can't see any TA40 images online with gold harware, just higher spec models. I need a trip to the loft to dig out some old photos because I know it was one of those with lots of writing on the headstock, but can't recall if it had a scratchplate or not.
The only Fx units I had a the time were a Yamaha REX50 & some Alesis micro's, so it would have been around 1987/88 & I think it was around £260 back then.
Very nice gift, likewise I wouldn't have fussed either!
I kept looking at the Epi semi's with gold hardware but whenever I saw one in a shop they didn't look like the plating would last long. Mind you I quite like the tarnished look depending on how it flaked off.
