    Market is crazy when you really want something, but when you don't have the funds, there is plenty of offers. I sold a Jackson hoping to get a nice Les Paul with the money, but now they nice MIJ's I have been wanting are going for £2k and above and mid level models around £1.5k. Keep your eyes...

    Navigatior question....

    I also had a navi custom that I sold. I think the price is good for what you get compared to gibson. The neck on the Navigator was very fat and seemed fatter than neck on the navigator goldtop. I found the binding finish kinda yellowish, a stark contrast to places were the finish wore off or was...

    Unofficial official anything GRECO theory photo id related thread

    Speaking of Grecos, the below is a rosewood board, right? I see the streaks and know ebony can be streaky too. It's just that everything on this guitar points to being a 68-80 but the fretboard

    Unofficial official anything GRECO theory photo id related thread

    Thanks, but after the LS60 that got away this just won't do. This was from 1985 and had the most amazing tiger top, looked a lot like a gibson because of the top. I'll try to get a pic but it went from £500 up to £800 or so and there were many bidders. How much on top am I looking at buying...

    Was just outbid on an ls60, looked great but eventually got up to £800. I have not found an ls80 going for less than £1500, but i have seen them for more, even within Europe

    Thanks, that neck gash looks bad, not sure how to go about fixing that. Seems like the market in the UK is a bit pricey at the moment. There's this Greco for £1200 and tokai ls80 for £1500, but '82 is my birthyear and would join my 82' Navigator, but I would feel more comfortable with it at a...

    How much does a good 1982 mint collection eg59-85 go for these days? Is €1250 still a good price for these?

    Are 80's Navigators equal in quality to current ones?

    I have both and I find them.a bit different but both great guitars. I have a limited model from 2001 I think and its a p90 gold top. I don't know if they make the necks on these different from the humbucker models but its a fat u shape neck that is great. Its very heavy but sounds and plays...

    The Unofficial Official Anything ESP Edwards & Navigator Theory, Photo, & ID Thread

    I'm replacing the pickups and pots in my 80's Navigator, so here are the pickup cavities of this no-serial model. There is some weird wiring going on in this thing that got me stumped too, with a bunch of wires coming from the switch. A real mess :) there's a wire connecting the switch and...

    What's all this? Need some wiring advice please

    Years ago I got a Navigator LP, supposedly from the 80's and I changed the pickups and 1 volume pot as it was push/ pull. Now I want to replace the pickups again and got some CTS pots to do a full rewiring. After taking the pickups out I've noticed some wiring connections I have not seen before...

    Greco Les Paul Custom owners, need some advice

    Thank you for all the info. What would a 82 serial number black beauty with double tricks and MOP/ ebony be? Is that more likely a 68-60, 68-80 or egc1000? Were they all available in 1982?

    Looking for a vintage Tokai LS100 or LS120, preferably early 80's. I have a few Navigator Les Paul but I'd like to find out what the vintage Tokai mojo is all about. I almost bought a LS120 but it was outside EU and the UK Customs tax took it out of my price range, which is around £1500. There...

    Greco Les Paul Custom owners, need some advice

    I'm in the market for a Greco Les Paul custom, but from searching it seems they had several models over the years. I'm looking for something high-end although Ebony fretboard is not a requirement. I used to have a Greco EG600 PR, that was ok, but I didn't not like the maple neck so I'm looking...

    i'm in the market for a nice tokai, just had a LS320 slip through my fingers for a great price and am still feeling the gas. I'm not looking for a black one, otherwise the one above would be perfect. I've been keeping an eye on the usual sites, but if anyone has one that they're thinking of...

    Selling a 1986 USA Jackson Soloist made in the San Dimas Factory. It has an original Floyd Rose and EMG pickups. Ebony fretboard and MOP inalys. Awesome rock machine! Ideally would like to trade it for a Les Paul but am asking £1800.

    Seymour Duncan Antiquity vs Slash APH-2

    They are in an 80's ESP Navigator, the guitar sounds great but also has a high neck angle. Came with a JB in the bridge and unknown pickup in the neck. Will be replacing it with 500k CTS pots, and the new Slashes I guess, and have some nice russian PIO .022 caps. Checked and the antiquity is...

    Seymour Duncan Antiquity vs Slash APH-2

    I have just gotten some Slash APH-2 Pickups for a good price. I do have a nice Les Paul that ended up with a Seth Lover in the neck, taken from a previous guitar, and an Antiquity bridge pickup, that was eventually changed out for a full-strength alnico 2 magnet. How different would the Slash...
