Scarce 1980 Greco EG800C in rare Violin Burst finish. Classic Japanese lawsuit-era single-cut LP Custom featuring a Mahogany body with multi-ply bound front and back, a figured Maple veneer over a Maple cap.

Single piece Mahogany neck with bound diamond headstock with closed ‘O’ Greco logo. Bell shaped truss rod cover with Super Real Custom engraved. Gold plated waffle back tuners. Rosewood fingerboard with fret end binding and pearloid position markers. Bridge and stop tail are both branded F.G.T Made in Japan.

The guitar has previously had the loom and pickups replaced with a more modern set with pots dating to 2008 and a set of unbranded pickups. Knobs look to have been replaced with Gold reflector type. The guitar is in great condition, there is some light tarnishing to the gold hardware but the finish is bright and glossy. The guitar plays well, the original frets have height and play nicely. The neck is a comfortable C profile measuring 21.87 at the 1st fret and 25.03 at the 12th. The nut is a roomy 43.83 wide and the guitar weight an impressive 8.8lbs. The guitar comes with its original tags and case.
