Re: Looking for Les Paul Custom black beauty

I'm not interested in trades, but I do have an 81 Greco EG 1000C Black Beauty I'm looking to sell.
These have an Ebony board, mother of pearl inlays, massive neck and DRY Z pickups.
PM me if it is of interest.

Re: WTB High end Tokai/Greco/Navigator Les Paul Type

You may need to adjust your budget for high end models.

Right now in high end I would sell: Greco DRY Z models EGF 1200, EG 1000C (black beauty and a black sunburst), Tokai LS-120, Navigator NLP-500. Also have a flame top 81 Greco Custom EGF 850C, non catalog model.

PM me if interested.

1981 TE150 SB-BL - Parsons White String Bender Tele

Landed a very rare Tokai that there is hardly any info floating around on. However, I did find a magazine with a new product announcement that these were introduced as a limited run of 50, going on sale in April and May 1981, all in blond and priced at 150,000 Yen and came with factory installed Par...

Re: Silver star dating

First digit of the serial number on the headstock dates your guitar to 1982. With 'H' Hot pickups, white pickguard and those tuners your guitar would be an SS-40. Hot came on SS-36 and 40 White pickguard came on SS-40 and 60 Those tuners came on SS-36 and 40 Here's how Tokai described the different ...

Re: Need some fast help if possible with authentication of SS-60

SS-60 should have: - Long sustain bridge with brass saddles https://live.staticflickr.com/1956/44503102825_99f9f774cf_h.jpg - These tuners https://live.staticflickr.com/1922/30477974657_f909446224_h.jpg - Pickups would be SS Super, not sure if they had a stamp on them. SS Hot had an H stamped on the...

You are simply Trolling.

Well, I do regret sharing that link with you and see no point in providing you with any other info on this.

Clearly you are just to be ignored - which is apparent from many of your posts.

Re: I 'laughed out loud' when I saw this Greco listed on Rev

I was looking at Reverb listings & I saw a listing for a 1979 Greco EG 850 that has the below statement in the verbiage. "Pickups on this model are PU-2, with an ‘A’ stamp to indicate Alnico magnets." :lol: I have never heard that before. Actually I have read discussions on forums & I have never he...

That is SO nice... Congratulations! Unusual headstock on that one though, what's that about? Thanks! That inlay shows up in later 81 catalog and in 82. It is inspired by Les Paul Artisan - google the Gibson, very similar headstock. Just lovely! Are these generally heavier due to the all mahogany bo...

LC-100 Black Beauty 1981

These seem to be very hard to find. Missed out on one months ago, but this one is nicer than expected. Made in 81 and sold in 82. Will need to keep my eye open for correct truss rod cover, otherwise looks all original. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/33741300988_5f03d6ea39_h.jpg https://live.sta...

As Wulfman said, brass nut, brass saddles, SS80 is nitro finish. Last thing to check is if the pickups are DiMarzio FS-1 Fat Strat Take off black pickup cover and should say DiMarzio on inside. Top is a vintage, bottom with 1 is new: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1928/43580264710_d0648bb2f1_b.jpg D...

So those should come off then.
Hopefully no tan lines.
