He he, this is really tricky territory for a newbie... Could anyone post a picture or two, of the differences between the Cort and Tokai made Greco LP Custom? Here is a picture of how it looks. It has the same wire and tenon - but not the "egc 75" stamp. http://i456.photobucket.com/albums/qq282/clin...

Thank you. Think I will skip the one I have been offered then. It is claimed to be a Tokai made - but no serial what so ever to spot on the guitar.

No serial Greco egc 75

Hi

If there is no serial number on either the back of the headstock, or in the pickup cavity - and no stamping on the pickups. Is it then for sure a Tokai made Greco from japan?

Cheers

The EGC-75 will not fall apart on you, and is far from being a toy guitar. This is a quality Tokai-made product, and as I stated in the other thread, I prefer this particular axe over all of my Gibsons. I have to say though, I always thought that it was an EGC-75, because it emulates a 1975 LP Cust...

No, I'm saying there were 3 different factories making Greco customs during that period and you should know that (and how to differentiate the three) before considering buying one. Ok thank you for the info. And it is not possible to say which of those factories did the best job in general? It's ju...

I have owned an Ibanez made at the Fujigen plant - that was a great guitar. It was an RG7620 made in 2001. But if the Made by Tokai Greco is not a "toy-guitar" and is plenty good to be gigged with (solid construction, stays in tune well), I think I will pull the trigger on it. Unfortunately I can't ...

Ahhh ok, so that's how it works with the model numbers. But wouldn't it then be more accurate if the model was named EGC-100 if the price was 100.000? Just a thought... Well well, I just need to try one out I guess. Still hard to believe that they can actually compare to custom Gibsons - but hey, we...

Ok Thank you for the info. To me it seems that there are two kinds of quality: 1: Solid as a rock all the way - top notch, no matter if it is a 1.000 dollar or 4.000 dollar axe 2: Good quality for the money - meaning that a cheaper guitar is lesser quality than a more expensive one. I really need a ...

Tokai made Greco

Hi I'm new here and own only Fender and Gibson guitars - standards as well as custom shop guitars. But - I have - like many others - gained interest in these fine japan guitarclones. They seem to be of great quality. Some even as good as a real Fender or Gibson - if that is true, it is amazing. I ha...
