They ran out of stickers around 1985 or so and for some reason didn't get more. That is frustrating though!

@mortors I was hoping there would be some kind of label in the cavities.

From what I see it is a Fuji-gen Greco based on the front pickup cavity.

Pots are 500K based on the serial on top of them.

I was hoping the pickups had a sticker on them as well. That would have helped with determining the model. My 89 Greco pickups are not labelled either.

From what you see is the maple cap a veneer or solid?

It is a really pretty guitar. That color is on point.
Definitely a solid maple cap

It is a Fujigen-made. As far as I have seen the logos are consitent even between Fujigen, Tokai and Terada builds.

You can see the top is a veneer because the growth rings in the maple go across the center, so there is no center-matched top.

So it has a maple cap with a veneer over it correct?

It is mixed up in 1990 and there are open O and closed O Grecos from Tokai and Fujigen. The Tokais don't have serials so it is a bit hard to date them conclusively,
