Vintage 1977 Greco EG600 Les Paul Custom with 1980 Gibson Protector Case. Classic Fujigen Gakki high quality, hand crafted "lawsuit" era guitar made in Japan. Greco was (at the time) the sister company of Ibanez.They are a much more accurate and superior reproduction when compared to the non-standard bolt-on neck LP copies that Ibanez and numerous others were importing to the US back in the day. Many features of this EG600 are exactly what you would expect to find on a mid to late 1970's Norlin era Gibson LP Custom; a slim profile 3-piece set maple neck with fret edge binding, volute, correctly proportioned open-book headstock with mop split diamond inlay, rosewood fingerboard with mop inlays, mahogany "pancake" body, maple top, multiple ply binding, etc. Hardware and pickups are high quality.
Beautiful wood and cherryburst finish throughout. This particular EG600 is in overall excellent condition for a 40 year old guitar. There are some superficial dings and scratches here and there that one would reasonably expect of a well cared for honestly played instrument of this age.Most people find this relic'd look and feel a plus. The only non-original parts are the two volume pots, which were replaced with CTS brand pots. The original frets have lots of life left in them, action is sweet and low (no fret buzz). Plays like a dream and sounds great, definitely has the mojo! Recently sat up with a set of Gibson vintage reissue 10-46 strings. It is understandable why the top US musical instrument manufacturers were very concerned about these. If you've been looking for a 70's LP Custom, but don't want to break the bank, this is as close to the "real deal" as it gets! Comes with a cool vintage 1980 Gibson "Protector" Generation 2 case with brown plush interior. Case is in good condition (considering age) and all latches work. Comes to you from a smoke-free, pet free, humidity controlled environment.
