    Greco LP - need help identifying...

    Yep Up the Irons to you too and thanks for your insight! \../ Well he wants to trade me straight up for my Marshall VM 2466 head. I have the head listed at $825.00 CAD. Even with the upgraded pups you wouldn't recommend due to the pancake body/plywood top?

    Greco LP - need help identifying...

    More pics. I know the pups have been swapped for 57 classic and 490t and looks like Gibson pots as well. Any more idea of what model this is? Value of the guitar?

    Thanks Greco! Nice avatar!! :) Seller has replaced the pups with a 57 in the neck and a 490T in the bridge. I will ask about the other deets. Thx!

    Greco LP - need help identifying...

    Hi all. Been chatting about a trade for this Greco LP. Seller tells me it's a '78 and based on the serial number this appears to make sense (E787381). However, I don't have a lot knowledge with Greco guitars and don't know what model this is. Hope someone can help out. An idea of the value of...

    Vintage brand Les Paul

    This. I tried one out a few years ago and the first time I slid my hand down to play around the 17th fret I almost split my fingers open. The frets were super sharp...brutal...

    NGD MIJ Cortez Set Neck!

    Thanks everyone! Workerunit - great to know it's from '77. Same colour? Do you know where yours was made? I am not sure whether Uncle Mats or not. Warmachine - def not hollow! I did end up replacing the Epiphone pups that were in it - sounded kinda dull and boomy in the mids. No low end...

    NGD MIJ Cortez Set Neck!

    Hey everyone. Picked up this beauty today - not much history on Cortez guitars and I've never seen one here in Canada until today - they are almost certain Matsumoku from what I have read. I'm guessing late 70's. Almost 10lbs - solid mahogany body for sure. Original tuners. Someone swapped out...

    El Degas Les Paul Custom copy

    Hey BrainMan. I have the same guitar but mine is white, bolt-on and I have a Dimarzio Superdistortion in the bridge. Brass nut as well as this one. I would probably ask the same for mine if I were to sell it but I won't - ever...solid mahogany and it weighs 10lbs! I bet the set neck is even...

    Anyone know what Company made this guitar?

    Agreed 100%. I have a few bolt-on Les Pauls from the Uncle Mats plant and they do not lack any sustain at all...hopefully that's not the only reason you didn't buy it...:shock:
