Here’s a beautiful vintage ‘Super Real era EG-500 Japanese Greco Les Paul Custom in scarce Violin Burst finish.  This old girl is from 1982 and is beautifully constructed with the ‘Open O’ logo & squared ‘Super Real’ TRC on the headstock. It is non-chambered with a quite beautifully carved dark Violin Burst mahogany top. We don’t come across many old Japanese Greco Customs with tops like this.  It's clearly based on the '68 custom but has a comfortable thicker '59 neck profile with a good solid volute. It’s all original and the maxon ‘Screamin ‘82’ humbuckers sound great on this one. This was one of the last Grecos to feature Maxon humbuckers, before all the electronics were moved in-house at FujiGen. In great condition for an 80’s Greco Les Paul. Like all of our vintage Japanese Les Pauls it is higher end with a set neck, not a cheaper bolt-on and fret end binding (nibs). It is all original with it's black witch had knobs, full sized pots, braided wire and had carved bone nut. Some uniform vintage ageing all over the plastics with the white binding turning yellow and the original gold plated nickel hardware starting to age with vintage wear and patina. There is some dull rubbing in places and some and some lacquer finish cracking to the back of the neck (pics). Only in the lacquer but it's feelable. It could quickly & easily be sanded off back to a smooth finish. No electrical or structural issues. It’s had absolutely no breaks or repairs and plays like a dream. Straight neck, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. Weight 4.4kg. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story. Complete with gig bag.
