Hi, thanks for response. For starters i know the differences between standard models (from Japan, Korea and China), as it could be visible from the way the question was asked.

I know but as I said before I am not willing to buy such a guitar for let's say more than 2000 euros plus 120 euros shipping and 25% taxes on top of those 2120 euros.And I know how german customs are behind braz since we have this regulations.Makes no sense for me to pay more than 2500 euros to be i...

WTB Greco SA-1200

Looking for a Super Real SA-1200 in excellent condition located only in Europe as bloody german taxes are 25% on top of the total price and the well known braz problem.Don't really hope for one for sale but who knows :wink:
