What's a fair price

Knowing what we know, this is still a pretty nice guitar. What would be a fair price? If it really were an eg 1000, it would of been a bargain at the price the seller is asking.

Beware of Products on ebay

The seller of this greco sais it's a solid top guitar. I don't think he's purposley trying to mislead. However, I think allot of sellers don't know allot about the guitars they are selling. He may of got some misinformation from the person he bought the guitar from. Also, there is quite allot of mis...

I've noticed the pickups are Japanese ephiphones and not usa pickups. These guitars looks very nice, with nice grainy tops on them. Yo...

overly expensive guitars-buyer beware

In my opinion, I think that "koiz-guitar" overcharges for his guitars. I would personally avoid buying anything from this ebay seller. He recently sold somebody an egf-1200 greco for $3500! If you read some of the remarks by a greco expert like "villager", these guitars should sell in the $2000 to $...

ARE ALL NEW BURNY LES PAUL COPIES MADE IN KOREA?

I recently visited the fernandes/Burny Japanese site at http://www.fernandes.co.jp . All the Burny Les paul models have a three screw truss rod cover, even the higher end models. Does this mean that all of the burny line is made in Korea. I have read a great deal of conflicting information regarding...

Japanese quality is better

I think your right. A greco of this calibre are not made anymore, you make a valid point. I do agree Japanese workmanship is in most cases is better than gibson's workmanship at a fraction of the cost.

serial number

My guitar does have a six digit serial number on the top of the headstock, on the back. Also, at the back of the headstock at the bottom, there is a "made in Korea" sticker.

As far as I know these were made specifically for the Canadian market. The Korean made models for the European market use different woods, ie sycamo...
