    Looks ike the good old EG60-150 to me with a mystery neck crack. I'm sure the seller is wondering what the fuss is all about now.

    Nah... that was a 150 for sure. All the 150s I have seen are exactly that burst colour with almost identical scattered flaming and mineral tops.
    I suspect they were all cut from the same stock of maple.

    Ah you got it? Nice...I would have gone for that killer LS80 myself and it was tempting.

    No, not me, my guitar allowance is much much less that that these days.:( I'd bet the Greco is going to Maui soon....

    I agree that the LS-80 was very nice, and with no potential neck crack a safer bet.

    Agreed...hope it is for his collection although he had one before?
    He won't make much of a margin on that with a neck break.

    What did it go for in the end?
    Yes Cliff did own Harold's old EG60-150 complete with case and paperwork... it was lightweight too
    i would've liked to get my hands on one again but the top really doesn't do it for me and the neck's too skinny

    It's been a while since I posted here. Had a couple bids on the EG60-150. I saw it's final price this morning and figured "Hey I bet Harold, and Cliff and Mark and Mono/Gammy/Udo are all talking about this on MLP."
    I log in and sure enough the conversation is happening in real-time! Glad to see you all here again.
    If any of you are in Bay Area, CA hit me up. I'm doing repair work at a store out here (Long way from London town!). Would love to talk guitars and have you drop by the shop.

    My 3 best guitars are still in London and they came from Cliff, Harold, and Mark respectively. FLG-90, EGC800, and LS80.

    Hi Nat, good to see you back for a visit! Hope the Bay Area is treating you well.

    187,000 yen, sans a hard case. Where are the EG60-180s all hiding out?

    For 1300 gbp I'd be wanting a nice LS-80 or LS-100.

    1982 Tokai LS 120 with beautiful top and great upgrades on Reverb and The gear page. $1500 someone needs to grab this before I get deeper in debt

    The listing does state that the reserve is considerably lower, which is why I described it as a possible bargain.
