hi
i allso got 3 egc from 1982 ,,, one has serial 2 58xx with doweled neck ... and one 2 59xx and the last one 2 60xx and it has the long tenor ,,, so within 200 numbers the changed from doweled neck to long tenor
they have the inked serial but with the big numberes not like the eg 450 ..it has the small numbers
all the best

Does the last #2 60xx EGC have similar features like the first two with doweled tenons ?

Do cavities and other features look similar to the 1980 EGC-500 in the chart I posted here http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/oth...guitars-defy-catalog-specs-3.html#post5464610 ?
Just wondering, because the 4 guitars in that comparison appear to range between 1980 and 1982. :hmm:

I have a 1982 EG59-45 #2 3731 and it looks totally different from those ones. The wiring channel is straight in the lower bout drilled from the mortise and the tenon looks different. I don't know if that is of interest as I think it is the same way that that some of the customs were done at the time. Need pics?

It is not a curve ball Mats made Epi's during the early 80s.

EDIT: you beat me to it John :)
