Yep 3 piece back would be an EGF850, my EGF850 has a 3 piece back too, but remember, that Greco EGF Super Real used only the best woods, so, they would have used 3 pieces of premium Mahogany, instead of 2 pieces of a less quality....for that particular model.

So the main difference between an 850 & 1200 is the pickups? Those DRY-Z's you have are loooking more tempting by the minute

Are they really THAT good?

I have dry 1982's in one guitar and Peter Florence Voodoos in another and I have to say that I really prefer the Dry 1982's over the Voodoos. Never heard the Z's. I bet a big part of the sound of the EGF 1200 is those Dry-Z's.

Hi Diland, mate i'd have to agree, i love the "dry 1982" pickups they absolutely enhance the tone of my guitar. great pickups.

Yes, I have seen several different stickers for the 1200 but none for the egf850 so that is what I'm looking for.

Excite I will try..thanks.

Nice!
Those are exactly the same size i think.
But later, or at the same time, they used stickers with only the numbers on them. Those are the ones i think might differ in size. I have some glue residue on my late (1982) Super real and may be able to tell which one was there. I've seen stickers with only 1200 on them but none with only 850. I've seen 500 though.
BTW I've seen several, as I remeber, EG58-120 with the 1200 stickers on them. Is This correct or is there a EG58-120 sticker?
Thanks Mick!

Thanks mate,

You are right about the EG58-120 sticker displaying a 1200

This has all the info......
