1982 Greco "Super Real" Mint Collection EG60-150 Carved Top Burst, Lacquer w/ Dry PAFs & Case, Japan Fujigen

$4,899.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1982 Greco Super Real Mint Collection model EG60-150 in 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a Lifton-style hardshell case. Heralding from the most collectable (and brief) era of Greco production and the pinnacle of Fujigen design, the EG60-150 is one of the rarest "Bursts" ever offered by Greco. Capturing the finer points of a '58-60 Les Paul Standard, features include a genuine Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, a two-piece carved flame Canadian maple top, and a pair of zebra bobbin "Dry" PAF-style humbuckers.

This guitar is very lightweight for a LP-style instrument at only 8lbs 4oz, extremely lively and responsive to playing dynamics, with the near-endless sustain central to a great LP's acoustic profile. This guitar is loaded with its original Fujigen-made "Dry 1982" humbuckers. This particular PAF replica pickup is the highest grade humbucker offered in any Greco in the '82 model year, and the detail and dimension of these pickups reflects Greco's dedication to faithfully reverse engineer Gibson's late '50s humbucker tonal properties. The sound is nuanced and rich, with plenty of definition and power from the bridge pickup, and more warmth and fullness in the neck position. Lightly wax-potted, these alnico magnet humbuckers interact well with higher gain amps too. We've had this Greco professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The gloss Cherry Sunburst lacquer finish highlights the notably tight, straight flame figuring in the carved two-piece Canadian Maple top. Cosmetic wear includes a number of minor dings and finish scratches on the body as a whole, faint buckle worming on the back, and one finish chip on top through the thin lacquer. The neck profile retains its smooth gloss.
