Other than a cheap looking headstock not bad at all, good bang for the buck sounds sweet .Here is a sweet 1990 Made In Japan "Mint Collection EG-57 GRECO Les Paul Goldtop Built at Tokai factory due to Horn shape and Wiring cavity. Amazing quality with high craftsmanship went into building these Mint Collection reissue EG-57-50 model Les Pauls from Japan including long neck tenon neck setting. Pound for Pound as good as any USA Les Paul Reissue at less than 1/4 the price.
Plays fabulous with great low action. Comes with a sweet medium C profile neck , medium/ jumbo frets on her dark rosewood fretboard. The Long Neck tenon gives her that extra sustain like the $4000 USA Gibson equivalents. The Goldtop finish just sparkles. Plug her into your favorite tube amp and she roars to life with that classic FAT Humbucker Tone!
Overall condition for this 30 year old guitar is a super clean and shiny 8.8 on 10 (a few dings, light chrome tarnish, light belt buckle rash, and a small paint chip on front, see pics). Great balanced weight at 8.4 pounds and will ship in a nice black padded case

ALL GOOD MY FRIENDI want to apologise for my hotheaded response above I own an Epiphone I get people slagging an instrument i wasnt taking a slap at your guitar enjoy your guitar my temper gets me in trouble sometimes enjoy your lp .
I removed the Tokai part. I screwed up, Another member said "OH Round Horn Tokai madeInteresting Greco. The Tokai-made Grecos that I have seen do not have a serial number on the headstock. I believe most were made between 1988 in 1992, but I am not positive on those dates. The most certain way to know if it is Tokai made is looking at the pick up routing cavities and the neck tenon joint inside the neck cavity.
