Greco EGC68-60 Left Handed Mint Collection LPC Style Black 1990
Greco 'Mint Collection' EGC68-60, made in Japan 1990, black. This here is a very tasty thing; a great example of 'Lawsuit Les Paul' goodness. The 'Mint Collection' series was Greco's late 80s/early 90s takes on the classic Gibson models of the past; this one being a very close copy of the original Les Paul Custom from 1968. It's got a proper unchambered mahogany body with a maple cap, tasty PAF-style pickups and some good quality hardware. It's beautifully put together; in the hands the precision of workmanship is obvious. The tone on offer is great: heaps of traditional LP-heft, but with a singing clear top end and a rich midrange. These don't emerge often in a southpaw configuration, so if you've been tempting adding a tasty vintage MIJ LP to the collection, here's your shot at the title!
