    I saw that earlier today and thought about buying it as it looks like a good deal for a decent quality guitar. I bought 2 Tokai strats from the seller that were well packed and priced about the same.
    Looks to have some wear on it but someone should grab it.

    ditto - 3 pups only look good on ebony customs, IMHO.

    So this thread is for ANY bargain MIJ we find online? Not just Greco's I hope...

    Lol ANDY,I could not edit the title...This thread should read" MIJ bargain of the day"..but it does not need to be limited to just MIJs other guitars are welcome ..only if it is a deal of the day,bargain ,whatever!!!


    I do not like 3 pup lesters ...never have or will..but it is a freakin nice banjo...

    singing up to rinkya I have encountered the DEPOSIT section.
    how does this part work exactly?
    if i bid say $500 and I've paid a $100 deposit is my total then $400 or do they keep that $100 in their kitty?how / when do I get it back?
    I kinda just wanna bid on 1 thing ... yes ONE

    If you want to be able to bid up to $500 you must authorize your card for $125. They don't actually charge your credit card, they just authorize it so that if you do a runner afterwards they're covered for a quarter of the purchase price (and can probably recover all or most of their money by relisting and selling it themselves).

    It says when the neck is adjusted to have no relief there is some buzzing so they put a little relief in it, and the truss rod can still be tightened more.

    I know NOTHING about Greco's, but was on Yahoo Auctions and found this little thing...

    Greco EG58-120 mintcollection - Yahoo!Auction

    Granted, at a BIN of 150k Yen it ain't cheap, but look at the photos...

    Yeah and yet Villager stated the 120's never came in a cherry burst, only lemon. Mine was the same as this...this adds a little more proof that during the MC era they did make the 120's in a cherry.

    Well spotted MONO ,I had a quick look at that GRECO MC EG-120..saw the first photo,thought it was just plain !Good detective work,just goes to show how photos ,bad photos distort the tops of guitars,just what WULFY was saying in a previous post...

    HEY ! GAMMY ,HOW ARE YOU!
    That OBG is exactly what i mean ,a real good un for fixing up ,a little TLC and that is it :)

    Ok ! So heres my" DEAL OF THE DAY" Well two DDs,But i have a confession to make ,I have let you all down fellow forum members ! Yes ! I have pulled the trigger ,lost my self-control ,I have brough another MIJ ,I lasted nearly nine god damn lonely days of MIJ cold turkey...Sorry MA & PA! BOO-HOO!SNIFF! SNIFF!
    But the gas came..the greed,,,the alpha male syndrome sweat! Its about ME!!!Only me!!! F**k you all !
    Let it be? I will live with the guilt.....Lets all move on..forgive and forget!

    Back to the topic..My 1st "DEAL OF THE DAY" is one which i brought..I just picked up this late 80s mint collection GReCO eg59-70 for 30k yen:dude:

    greco eg59-70 1988.jpg

    greco eg-59-70 1988 headstock.jpg

    greco eg59-70 1988 back.jpg


    Next up! A burny GT or is it? Someone here knows about this guitar as a rinkya bidder is highest bidder at the moment!
    It is in my opinion a "DEALEEPER! yes i just invented that word ,made it up! Its deal and a sleeper ,get it?
    It is on rinkya ! Have a look-see.

    What do you guys think??

    that's why i registered for rinkya and thought exactly the same thing.
    sleeper.looks like shit too.colour threw me a bit but I put it down to lighting or flash or something but either way I have some fresh nickel gotoh hardware and a set of seymours destinied for just such a project.

    so if you could stop advertising the link that'd be great!! :)
