Greco EG600C Les Paul Custom 1978



Every bit the equal of the USA Norlin Gibson guitars of the era, this Greco Les Paul Custom was made in Japan during the glory days of "lawsuit" guitars in 1978. Set neck, maple top and highly sought after original Maxon pickups. Weight only 3.8kg.

Has some play-wear, lacquer wear, dings and scratches you might expect from a 46 year old guitar, but recently serviced, fully functional with a never broken headstock. One pot crackles at bit and some gold hardware has lost its golden coating. All original parts to the best of our knowledge. 

Very mojo-licious.

More info

The Greco company started building guitars in Japan in 1960, hitting their high water mark for quality between roughly 1971 to 1982. Japanese concert tours in the 1960s by bands like the Beatles and Led Zeppelin created a ravenous demand for affordable Fender and Gibson-styled guitars amongst the young Japanese fans. Greco stepped up to fill that demand, and made more high quality "lawsuit" copies of the major guitar brands' designs than all other Japanese guitar companies combined. And while no legal action was taken against Greco for these guitars, Gibson did commission the same factory to make their "Orville" line of instruments which were exclusively sold within Japan!

A Greco EG-600 LP Custom in a finish resembling Gibson’s Cherry Sunburst in perfect working order. It's very comfortable to play with straight neck, low weight and low-action.
