1981 Greco EG-450 Super Power Les Paul MIJ Japan (Brown Sunburst)
This Greco EG-450 was produced in the early 80's, and is part of the series that are widely considered to be the first real competitor to USA made instruments of the same period. Made in the famous Fujigen factory, the early 1980's Greco builds were top notch.
Really classy brown sunburst top with trap inlays and the open book headstock give it a lot of Gibson vibes, weighs in at a really nice 3.8kg's. All original including the Kluson style tuners and Maxon pickups. Light patina to the hardware but all fully functional, the frets have plenty of life and play well.
Japanese Gibson-style guitars (like this one) are a great alternative to a modern Gibson/Epiphone. With the hit and miss quality of modern Gibson guitars, a Japanese guitar from the 70's or 80's can prove to be a higher quality instrument that's been played in nicely. Many of these guitars will also cost you a fraction of what a new Gibson will and are also more affordable than a new Epiphone!
