I have a Greco LP " Super real model" with
s/n: 2 0033.It has a three peace Mahogany body, a one piece glued in mahogany neck, a really nice ala Pearly Gates flamed maple top. What I don`t have is information about this guitar or Grecos in general. Could someone please fill me in. It is a great guitar and it beats most Gibsons I have tried.

I also own a Greco "Super Real model" LP s/n
0 7795 in cherry sunburst w/all the same features
except mine has a two piece body.The previous
owner(whom I know very well)replaced the tuners
and the pick-ups w/Gibson '57 classics.The hardware is nickel plated.THIS THING ROCKS!!!
I have a friend who HATES this guitar because
sounds and plays sweeter than his AAA top $3200
Gibson Les Paul(he told me never to tell his wife
what I paid for it!).The only info I have is that
these guitars were probably made before '75(pre-lawsuit)by Fuji Gen Gakki, maker of many Hoshino/
Ibanez guitars of the same era.I have only seen
one other Greco copy in my life(a walnut finished 335 copy)so I would suppose they are pretty rare (at least in the states).NEVER SELL IT!!!
