Also the Super Real EGF ....

just to clear up some confusion....the mint collection catalogue numbers are EG59-50/65.70/85/100/120/150/160/180

the stickers you some times see on the back of these read 650/850/1000/1200/1500/1800

this is because greco had lots of old stickers left over from previous series, when the model numbers had an extra 0 on them ..so a mint coll with a 650 sticker is actually an EG59-65 even though the sticker says 650

re the tokai 120 equal..you would need a EG59-150 or higher for the one piece back and nitro finish and fret binding...or a EG-59-120 if the fret binding is not necessary..

How can I make the ID that is an EG59-...

Do the EG58-... have same catalogue numbers ?? what about the spec between the EG58-... and the EG59-... :-?

EG58 were very rare and unusual, I only ever saw 1 guitar advertised as a 58 for sale ...EG58-120 with dry PU...next year it was EG59-120 so no way of differentiating
