Apologies for not bunging this into the Greco Identification Megathread; I think this is a very unusual case since this thing is a real mongrel in terms of specifications! Please forgive a newbie for being too presumptuous, haha. I've had this mysterious EGC Super Sound Custom lying around for a few months now - a little bit of research has been done here and there - but I think I need the super sleuths from M.L.P C.S.I to finally solve this case! The little bit of research I've carried out indicates that this guitar was perhaps produced during the tail end of the 'Super Real' production run and transition into the 'Mint Collection' phase. A few folks on this forum have formed the opinion that Greco were just mixing and matching parts & materials to 'get things done with' when the legal hammer was coming down on the 'Super' line. The truss rod cover states the obvious 'Super Sound Custom'. Documentation is missing from the big rectangular Greco hard case, and there is no sticker on the back of the headstock to indicate whether it is an EGC 600, 800 or 1000 etc... The Greco logo headstock inlay isn't particularly thick or thin. I cannot tell what material has been used for the fretboard block indicators, vaguely pearloid... We have the gold 'Waffle Back' tuners here that you tend to see on the higher end 800, 1000, 1200+ models. Bridge and tail piece (not in the photos) are 8001 F.G.B and F.G.T models (MADE IN JAPAN). Cosmetically, it has a very nice flame top, very likely a veneer. The maple cap is a good three-quarters of an inch thick judging from inside of the pickup cavities. Non-pancake body, but the mahogany back looks to be made from three pieces. The fingerboard seems to be a top quality cut of Brazilian Rosewood, very dense with a pleasant streaked pattern to it. Didn't the higher end EGF models tend to get this type of fretboard wood? Serial on the headstock (as seen in the photos) is A816711. So can we definitively say that this is a 1981 model? The pickups look to be the main mystery here - the real experts should jump in now - simply stamped with the digits '2 0 11 22'. No stickers indicating a model type. The code indicates a 1980 production when referencing this post: http://www.mylespaul.com/threads/mij-pickup-data-thread.155804/page-10#post-3154348 The closest code belongs to a Greco EGF-1200 (#2 0 11 21) with Dry-Z pickups. As you can see from my photos, there isn't a 'Z' on the back of the housings. What the hell are these things!? I haven't seen anything that looks like this Super Sound Custom in the old catalogues, did Greco take orders for customised variations for special shop runs? Photos: Wall of text & detail alert! Looking forward to your opinions, feedback and thoughts!
