Has anyone compared the top of the range G or CG lines with the bottom of the range GCs? For example, the G255s and the GC5 from the late 70s? I have been seeing quite a few G245s and up models listed at higher prices than GCs lately.
I have a G255s, a G260s, and a GC3A, all from the late 70's, early 80's (beside my GC15A from the late 70's and some others GCs from the early 70's).
I think the top models of the G series can be compared with the low models of the GC series, and they are more or less on the same level regarding sound and build quality. The build quality of the GC3A is maybe slightly better at same parts (inside the guitars and at the head). The purfling of the G255s/G260s is a bit nicer, but the ebony fretboard of the GC3A seems to have a slightly better quality. The tuners are the same but with different buttons. I prefer the sound of the G255s/G260s guitars but I know that I compare spruce (G255s/G260s) with cedar (GC3A) here.
My GC3A on the left side and my G255s on the right side:
