1982 Greco Limited Edition EGF1600 Super Custom Vintage Guitar w/ Dry Z, Japan Fujigen


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1982 Greco Limited Edition model EGF1600 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This rare, non-catalog Greco was produced in extremely limited numbers, designed to replicate Journey founding member/guitarist Neal Schon’s iconic Les Paul Super Custom. Premium features include flame maple veneers on the top and back, split-block (Super 400-style) inlays on the genuine ebony fingerboard, a brass nut, a pair of Maxon's famed “Dry Z” humbuckers, and a high-gloss Sunburst finish.

The tonewoods yield a powerful, immediate natural acoustic quality that's responsive to player inputs, offering plenty of sustain and authority. The Dry Z PAF-style pickups are the highest grade humbuckers offered on any Greco, sought after in broader Les Paul circles for their detail and dimension, reflecting Greco's dedication to faithfully reverse engineer Gibson's late '50s humbucker tonal properties. The sound is harmonic-rich and dynamic, with plenty of definition and midrange cut from the bridge pickup, and more warmth and fullness in the neck position. This EGF1600 weighs 9lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The flame maple veneers on the top and back have a couple (very common and non-structural) repaired splits, one on top beneath the bass-side bridge posts, and one on the back.

The gloss on the neck profile is immaculate.

A form-fit faux leather gigbag is included.
