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-800 Super Sound (part of the famed Super Real run) LP Custom in a finish resembling Gibson’s Cherry Sunburst in perfect working order. A real Lawsuit Era Greco. It's very comfortable to play with Straight Neck and Low-action. 

This guitar features a Solid 2-piece Maple top (a step above the 600 series and below), Mahogany back body, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard with Fret edge binding, and original Greco U-2000 Humbuckers (another upgrade to the 600 series and below). All electronics are the original. The truss rod works fine in either direction. Tuners have been upgraded to a set of Grovers that give the guitar an extra 'solid' feel during tuning, a real step up.

Visual Condition: Dings and chips around the body and neck but very good shape overall, some build-up and chrome flaking on the hardware. Nothing that would be visible unless you are looking up close.
