Boy oh boy.. I have not put the guitar down I have been playing her so much... She came from Japan....when it came for new strings, I took her apart for additional Pictures. This is my 4th Greco which includes a NM/Mint with case 1980 Super Real EG-1000CB, 1985 EG58-120 and a 1989 EG59-100... and IMO the EGF-1200 and the EG59 are my fav's.. I think I will dump an extra pair of DRY-Z's in the 1989 EG59... I will also take a pic of my 4 ladies together.. Cliff

Great guitar you have there - v. similar top to mine, I've not seen another quite like it.

Yours is in great condition, - even the sticker's in place!

Mine has beautifully yellowed/aged binding, and with the dark red mahogany, really adds to the whole feel/vibe of the guitar - bags of character (trying hard not to write mojo - doh!). Is yours similar?

Yes.... The binding all around the guitar has yellowed to a very deep yellow... really has that vintage look to it.. and the back is a very dark red cherry... This guitar is a big differnce in sound and feel from all other Grecos I have and beats the hell out of many, many many Gibby's that I have owned!!... Go Greco!!
