  •  SOLD  1978 Greco EG-500
    Audaciously created for lawsuit
It is often said late 70’s was the golden age of Japan guitar makers. With their inception to tapping into the western market in late 60’s, the rising starts of Japanese brands including Ibanez, Yamaha, Tokai and not to mention Greco, mastered the perfect craftsmanship over a decade and here we debate the very ‘lawsuit’ guitars of late 70’s. 1978 Greco EG-500 is not an exception.

Thoroughly modeled after Les Paul, EG-500 has the very similar look and feel including the neck profile, sound and the guitar timber selection. The black body is a good aesthetic match with the ivory bindings and pickup rings. As the photos indicate though, there are a couple areas where lacquer was worn and thus repainted. Please also note, the bridge and tailpiece were replaced with ESP-made ones.

A closing word – this beautiful historic vintage ships along with a sturdy gigbag.
