Hi HNLim,
hmm...I don't have a GC30A, at least I can't remember :wink: . I think I have a GC3A and a GC15A. I have known 3 sellers of a GC30A guitar in Germany, and I was in contact with two of them, but I have not bought one. Maybe there is another opportunity in the future to buy a GC30A. Have you sold your guitar to the buyer in China already?
Happiness is when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony.

Sorry Lim, my GC-30A Gotoh tuning machine has been removed to clean and polish.
I will take some photos after the job done for you :D
Is there any different between the headstock during the years?

All the best,
