Greco Les Paul Custom what is it and what year?

Post by aroomstudios » Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:04 pm

Anyone know what year and model this is? SN: F 05006 I looked up SN and they seen to be different for different models. I can find every model except for the customs. I own a bunch of new and vintage MIJ guitars but not any Grecos. So, I am not really up on specs and models for Grecos. This is all the info I have right now.

Thanks for your help

@villager

I posted this somewhere else also. Someone there said 1984. Are you sure it is a 1994?

I would agree EG600P.

How to these guitars compare to Tokai's? I heard Greco's in general are good but I just do not know enough about them.

Thinking that's an '84 by the serial and the broken "O" and headstock inlay. Mint collection Greco. Not '90's

Thank guys for the info. I think I will pass on this one. Seems like a equivalent to a Tokai LS-50/60 from the early 80's. What is a good Greco to get? Also, what do the Greco's compare to? Like are they more like Burnys than Tokais. I know some are made by Fujugen. I have a few brand new FGN (fujugen) guitars and they are amazing. Are the old Greco's made by Fujugen good? Or just more of the same. Also, if they are good how do you know they are made by Fujigen. I know how to tell by the routing if a guitar was made by Tokai. So, I assume it is something similar to that.
