Dry Z pups go for $500+ a pair and a basic Greco LP (set neck) without those pups will go for $600 - $800, so I'd put the value of the one you're looking at between $1,100 and $1,300. But I'd want to see the pup bottoms myself.

Why is there so little info about RR65 or the mint collection on the net?
One of the best-kept secrets of rock and roll guitar collecting. Most people stop paying attention if it's not about Fender, Gibson and maybe PRS.

Because Japanese guitars have very little resale value in the USA. Because no one famous hardly ever plays them. Because they are not on many famous recordings. Because they are after all copies of guitars made in America. Because 2 factories in Japan turned out like 50 different names. Because the Japanese themselves could care less about their being a published history. Because before the Internet there was little interest. Then in the mid 90's when these guitars were stacked up like cord-wood all over the Ochanimzu for 100-200 dollars, one very enterprising guy (guitargai) opened a website and sold them for 5 times that. Soon many others followed, and took many liberties with the "history" they deemed appropriate. Most of which is now quoted as gospel. After awhile the idea that these guitars were rare became somewhat suspect. All you had to do was look at the feedback of the big sellers to see they had shipped 1000's of them. Now having said that, I LIKE them. They are fun guitars to own and buy/sell. When the yen is right-- which it isn't right now-- you can go on Rinkya and buy them from Japan yourself. And when you tire of them you can often make a buck or two selling them on ebay. I also think that Edwards pretty much put an end to most of it. After all you can go on Ishibashi's site, get a brand new Edwards with a lacquer top and good electronics shipped to you for under a grand. Your best bet for info on MIJ guitars is the Japanaxe forum. I'm a member there and it's a very nice group of people.

Dry Z are different than Dry 1982


Anyone played or owned one?

Im starting to sound as a broken record.
This guitar we are talking about does NOT have Dry Z pickups.
It has Dry 1982 pickups which are DIFFERENT from Dry Z

The Greco LP Customs tend to go for less than the bursts...Ebay is a good indicator...they usually run from $300 to $600...there's a black Custom on there now going for less than $300...here's a nice black Standard with Dry 1982 pups going for $400.

I have a 1990 Mint Collection that I paid a little over $500 for, it's a lefty so it was a bit more expensive.
