Hi!
I've got my eyes on this Greco EG. It's sold as '73 but it has set neck instead of bolt-on neck. Obviously a pancake(mahogany-mahogany) and mahogany neck with maple fretboard, seller says that electronics are original and functioning but the fretboard is a mess. Probably it can be fixed.
Could I get your opinions, please?
Maybe a price tag too? ; )

Thank you!

ps. Pics: http://kotisivu.mtv3.fi/JM/greco.zip

pss. I asked a few questions from the seller and add them here with answers as soon as I get them.

EDIT: I think it might be EG-650N as seen here http://psyco.jp/greco/c02_03.html

Asked the serial and got an answer that serial numbers were introduced to Grecos 1974. Q:What happened to the fretboard? A:Lacquer has worn off due to the playing. Q:Neck profile? A:50's chunky.

serial says it was made in 1980 but there's no super real text on headstock. and body top is plain maple. so I guess it's an EG-450 or 500 which was made just before Greco started the Super Real Project.

Thanks for the input! The store charged about ?600, a bit more than the amount you stated so I will keep searching for that japaneese les paul =)

Hi Everyone-Newebie here. I have been very fortunate in recent months to have stumbled upon a couple of upper end Greco Les Pauls. The one in question is a 1982(seriall# I82....) Has the Open "O" in Greco. It has the flower pot logo and double trick pickups. The tuners are the gold ribbed tuners consistant with the ones that are on a real Gibson 1954 Les Paul Black
Beauty custom. It has the fret edge binding. the confusing part is that the neck seems thinner on the Black Beauty than on my Mint Collection '59 reissue. The truss rod cover on the Black Beauty states "Super Real Custom"
Both guitars have the long neck tenon. The '59 has the dryz pickups.I don't seem to hear too much about the double trick pickups. Are they rare? Anybody out there with similar features?
