Well, this is what I found looking at a lot of pics.
So your agreeing and there was not 3 different types of fuji routing?
No I said I found 3 types of control cavity floor routing which can by roughly dated by looking at a lot of pics
Do a search and see what you come up with
Nah, hurts my brain to think too hard
Just saying that it would depend whether the guitar needs floor routing, not the year it was routed.
Yes I understood what you were saying.
Pics say however that they were all routed and also in a certain way depending on date.
But thats just an 18 month period from a snapshot of guitars made. I think your looking too far into it. Whats the point.
I can understand looking into who made what, when, how and why. But....How far to route out the base of a cavity to fit in a pot.
Well, in this case the Bison in John's post can be dated using that info, so it's very practical knowledge. Just like knowing when Tokai changed from double ring to single tuners can be usefull to know.
But apart from that, it shows progression in how guitars were build in a certain factory, I find that interesting.
Ok, not trying to be difficult. So do you think they used thicker tops - top carves later in 81 than 80- early 81? hence the extra routing?
No, I don't think so.
As far as I can see the same pots with same shaft length were used. And less spacer rings
Re: the Nagano Tokai plant rumor - sorry I don't have the quote handy,
but it was from a reliable source.
Jacco, I've added a pic below of a 1982 EG-45 route along with 4 headstock pics you asked about.
The EG-45 was made right before the one you posted above.
i got a black eg450 from 1982 that has the same tenor ... solid top and a great guitar with pio cap but no feb ,, i all ways think it has a great feel to it mine have serial 2 7670
if you want pictures i can find it and post them
all the best
Hi Otto!! Nice of you to make a guest appearance in this thread! Yes please post pics!
Thanks for posting the pics John.
Btw I have found that Greco serial numbers are not sequential in 1981, wouldn't be surprised if they weren't either in 1982.
Good to see you back Otto.
Pics of how or where pickup wires route between both pickup cavities might be helpful, if convenient.
Hope you post pics of your new flame top EGC , if/when you get a chance.
It's certainly far from ordinary.
i allso got 3 egc from 1982 ,,, one has serial 2 58xx with doweled neck ... and one 2 59xx and the last one 2 60xx and it has the long tenor ,,, so within 200 numbers the changed from doweled neck to long tenor
they have the inked serial but with the big numberes not like the eg 450 ..it has the small numbers
all the best
Any idea which direction the neck pickup wire travels Otto ?
the right way no it is the same as the eg450 on page 3
