The Korean ones didn't have serial numbersI think. That split middle bar logo was used by the later Japanese and Korean Grecos. Looks like a 1990 MIJ Greco with a changed trc from the usual mint collection ones like Larry says.

I'm surprised this Mint Collection Junior hasn't got any bids so far at 20K looks a steal to me, unless I've missed something in the translation.

Nice looker, doubt it's nitro though. The SG's were usually cheaper end of the line so can't imagine any had high specs such as nitro etc. I saw a Greco cherry red SG junior sell on YJ a few days ago for 18K (~$180) kinda wish I'd bid for it as it was in decent condition. Probably best just strippin...

Yep I think it's hard to beat that Greco golden period 1979-82. I guess you'll come across the odd odd dud guitar, especially with the MIJ stuff as theres little chance to try before you buy,but I've always rated the stuff that fujigen was churning out and wouldn't dismiss the mint collections from ...

I'd hang on for a Mint Collection Greco rather than make do with a Burny. The earlier Burny TV Models are supposed to be good but the Burny Rockn Roll stuff aren't up to much and seem to benefit from the their MIJ association rather than actual build/sound. Not knocking Burny's as I've a couple and ...

Does anyone know if Koubayashi still has this guitar? I'd love to see some better pics of how well the conversion did or didn't come off.

Hi, can you tell me more about this guitar or post more pics. I've been searching for an MIJ 56 BB custom and came across this. Seems it's just a normal Fujigen Orville that sold for $102 and has been converted if you look at the photos from this ad http://www.gibsonlespaulcustom.net/for-sale/gibson...
