Playability is a bit subjective as so much depends on what weights and neck profile you'll like best. The Super Real era 1979-1982 is generally considered when Greco where at the top of their game. I ...

Not sure of the dates but think the 77 and 78 EG500's, there are a lot of catalogue scans on the net that should show the specs. In 79 they started the Super Real/Super Powers and the lower end 500's ...

Looks like a plywood top from the photo, if you look in the pup cavities it should be clearer for to you.

I've a cheap Japanese Yamaha SG copy with a plywood top and it's one of my favourites, soun ...

Fujigen were the main Greco factory during the the period that was made, January 1978. They didn't chamber guitars but the cheaper ones were hollow bodies with a plywood top. Just look in the cavities ...

The early DC juniors did have TV model on them, can't see your pics as you've used photobucket and the facebook group is closed

Here's a TV model logo , if it looks like this it should be genuine a ...

Your best bet is probably trying to buy direct from Japan either thru the stores or Yahoo Japan as they do seem rare even in Japan. I'd imagine anyone who's gone thru the hassle of getting one already ...
