  • 1988 Greco RS-90
    Deserves more than Super Real
Introducing here is Greoc's post-lawsuit era production, RS-90 Super Real. This slimline archtop portrays the culmination of Greco craftsmanship. She has a figured top, back and sides, mother of pearl and abalone fret inlays, tortoise shell binding and Grover tuners. All these create a stunning instrument inside and out.

Also note on Super Real label, it supposedly lived only up to 1981, here RS-90 was one of the very few exceptions Greco allowed to put the same prestige label for late 80's guitars. Design and sound-wise, surely she deserves the highest mark. Interestingly, rumor goes Gibson came up with their take on this guitar several years after (2002) by introducing ES-137.

So this very guitar stays in excellent condition, with careful maintenance done. Beside the unavoidable natural oxidation and minor dings, a concerned buyer may want to have a look at a very thin scratch over 12th fret. Photo attached for your examination. I took this guitar a few times to jazz sessions and recordings. While playing I never noticed the scratch but here I report to you for transparency. If you are ok with the condition, the guitar will fly to your door step with a decent and sturdy hardshell case.
