What do you guys think

Looks not that bad to me : http://www.ebay.de/itm/1982-Greco-Super ... SwImRYcCby

Pics show everything and description sounds honest.And one Dry Z on top.I do know nothing about the post EGF models.Are they as good as the EGFs are ? What about the difference between EGF 1200 and EG 60-120 ? Guess the 60 stands for slimmer 60s neck ?

There was no EG60-120, it should be an EG58-120 which has the narrower fretwire. I had one of these. It had a slimmer neck but was still a great guitar.
To me that price is too high considering it has some changed parts and some finish damage.

Thanks Harold.So the EGs are not so highly rated as the EGFs are I guess.

I think the EGF's are more highly collectible and an EGF-1200 would be preferable to a EG58-120, but from my experience the 1982s are more consistently made from lower to higher models and are closer to a real Gibson LP in terms of construction.

I guess it's just a matter of time.1200 are becoming rarer in the last few years.Not long and the 58-120 prices will go up as well.Crazy crazy...the normal price for Love rock LS-50 and 60 in german ebay start at around 1400 euros.Of course no one is stupid enough to pay it but sellers are trying and trying.Used Gibsons are cheaper today than premium MIJ from the 80s...
