    Highest model Fresher LP

    That is probably a ‘78-79 based on the headstock logo. Made by Chushin Gakki. The headstock logo changed in ‘79 and ‘80. Pancake construction was standard on low to mid tier models all the way through the early 80’s. If it is solid top and one or two piece back (not pancake) that was reserved...

    Highest model Fresher LP

    I have an ‘81 FL-450 Leo Nine as well just like the catalogue shows. Pancake body. I would guess that they got a nice cease and desist with the “Les Paul Model” on the headstock after one year in 1980.

    Highest model Fresher LP

    The best comp for this guitar is the 1980 Burny FLG line. The FLG-90 was veneer topped similar to a Greco 850 but the FLGs were sometimes one piece bodies at that price point. A Fresher FL-800 would likely be veneer top as well. For solid topped, the FLG Burny line jumped to 150 and 240. Usually...

    NGD: Greco EGF-850 1980 Refinish

    That looks amazing. Love those old 850-1200 series guitars. They really nailed those. The Duncan’s are great but shame it doesn’t still have the PU-2 pickups. Those are phenomenal stock pickups.

    For those who have tried all/most MIJ Les Pauls

    Played and owned all the brands you mentioned there. Your two qualifiers are budget ($1500) and one that won’t yellow over time. I personally like the off white cream color that a lot of the Burny and Greco customs from ‘80-85 had going on. Tokai customs in that vintage seem to come up much less...

    Best MIJ Les Paul Custom 1954 R4 Reissue (P-90s)?

    Like this? Edwards E-LP-92CD/P Likely a dark stained rosewood neck but probably a nice guitar at a 1/4 the price of that Navigator and from the same company.

    Mid Seventies Greco any good :-)

    I think you just misunderstood me so it’s all good. My original response to the OP was that this was lower spec. You said it wasn’t which is fine but I wanted to clarify that saying it is lower spec wasn’t a knock on the guitar itself just an observation that in the world of Greco this is a...

    Mid Seventies Greco any good :-)

    Lower spec wasn’t a slam on this guitar or even a comparison to other Greco guitars from that year. It doesn’t have to be a bolt on neck to be lower spec. There are about 10-12 easy things to point to that Greco vastly improved upon in about 5 years time. The ‘79-82 vintage was the peak of their...

    Mid Seventies Greco any good :-)

    These models are pretty low end on specs. Greco took a big step forward in construction specs as the decade ended. There are some cool and funky sounding guitars to be found in the mid 70s but they aren’t highly sought after or particularly well built.

    81-83 Tokai ES-100/150 or 80-81 Greco SA-900/1200

    The only MIJ 335 that made my jaw drop was an SA-1200. Those ES Tokai models are fantastic but the Greco would be my holy grail early 80s MIJ 335. I did play an early 80s Navigator that was in the same stratosphere and the pickups were dynamite.

    Why a chambered les paul does not cost more than a solid one?

    Older chambered guitars were primarily due to the lower grade, heavier woods they used. Veneers or black paint were slapped on to dress up a lower grade product. Newer stuff is chambered for the same reason but the sales pitch of enhanced tonal qualities is neatly rolled into the equation with...

    I think it is supposed to be blue but it is very purple in certain light. Not looking to part with it anytime soon.
