Hi Ian Yes I have photos of the headstock with the serial that makes it easy to determine the year of production and it is no problem to prove that the super real series has been produced only until 82 but this will not help at all as long as the guitars came to europe after 92.Even if they were her...

I totally agree that it is necessary to protect plants and animals before they are gone completely from this planet.What I do not understand is that these regulations have been decided in 1992 but are valid for instruments produced long before.Means my 3 Greco EGF are illegal now as I cannot prove t...

I know this guitar from pictures in different forums for years now and it's still one of the most beautiful Les Pauls I have seen so far.Fortunately I have not the money to buy it.My wife would kill me for sure... I recently bought a Greco from this seller and all I can tell is that he is not comple...

As said before I don't want to buy this guitar.First of all I do not believe it is what it should be and second the price and the taxes make it ridiculous expensive.The point was only that it surprises me to see such an offer from a dealer I thought you could buy from.The navigator I bought from the...

I am not interested in buying it.Just found the offer and was wondering if it is what it should.When I want to buy this I can add 25% taxes on the total price (guitar + shipping).Ridiculous :wink:

I've seen this in a guitar mag...great news I guess.This rosewood regulations are valid since 1992 but guitars that are dozens of years older are illegal now...95% of this wood has been abused for crappy furnitures but they f u c k guitar players for the fretboards...sick in the brain

This has been listed and (multiply) relisted for quite a long time. That's a big surprise :D Guess you have to be at least Nostradamus to know that a refinished body without hardware and electronics can beat any other guitar. To be honest this seller is well known in german guitar forums and the ge...
