Mate, the neck joint should be quite good, the early and very sort after super reals have the same joint.{Mark,correct me if i'm wrong?} I'm pretty sure the extended tenon or long tenon didn't appear until the "Mint Collection" guitars from 1982 and on. It is still a better neck joint compared with the much more expensive Gibson lp standards, .......Cheers Mick

Mick, I am really very glad, that you re so helfpul to me.
This Greco can be my first "REALLY" guitar, so I don?t want make mistake.
Please, can you tell me, what to you think, which model is it?
It has fret edge binding - so I think it will be higher than eg500.

thank you very much

ps:sorry my english is not very good

There is a member on here "villager" send him a private message and i'm sure he will let you know what to look for, i'm more familiar with the "mint collection" models. ..................Mick

Hey all, newbie here. I have two grecos at the moment one is a standard EG-700 (which i absolutely love) and i just picked up an lp custom model but cant work out the id. Here's a pic of the inside neck pickup cavity. It reads: S-68 EGC-7(UNREADABLE) i THINK IT'S A 5. Also has the funky headstock logo and slimmer neck. Can anyone help me date this custom? I'll get more pics of it up soon. I left all of my gear at my drummers house....doh! Heres the pics:

Headstock looks just like this one....

It should have a serial number like the 3rd image from the left at

logo is the 3rd image from the left at

The Greco open book headstock models were stopped before 1994 and probably before 1992.
The lower priced Grecos with no serials seem to be made by Cort in Korea and are from the late 80s but some no serial Grecos don't seem to be from Cort.

interesting. Thanks for your responces. Do the Korean models have fret edge binding? I thought i read that they didnt. It also has the "made in japan" tuners as well. Whatever it is it's really a nice guitar. Well made and pretty heavy like it should be. Heres a couple of pics. The person i bought it from changed the pups to dimarzio PAF pro's but i plan to change them out later. Thanks again for responding.
