There is not a whole lot of information about these guitars out there. I think I had the same guitar you are speaking of. Mine was wine red with gold hardware, it was a copy of a Les Paul Deluxe. From what I understand, and it could be hearsay, these guitars were made by Aria in Japan. They were made out of decent materials, but the main objection about them was that they had a bolt-on neck. Les Pauls are supposed to have a set-neck. Because the neck was bolted on; people assumed that they were cheap and bought the Tokai Love Rocks instead. The Granada is very similar to the El Degas. Though I am not sure who made the El Degas.

I also have a wine-red Granada hollowbody guitar. Bolt-on neck, gibson es335 t copy. The person who sold it to me, told me it was from 1979. It sounds very good, and plays very nice. It's made in Japan, but I'd like to know more about it.

The company was forced to close in thee early 80's due to infrindgements on Gibson design. Whenever I take mine in for service, the guys love it and handle it with the greatest of respect. If you have the same guitar, it weights maybe 2 lbs. This is a BLUES Guitar. You can beat it, bend it, heck, you can even sleep with it if inclined to (nice curves)... Value.. I'll give you 50.00 USD Right now. I could sell it easily for a grand to a guitar lover (maybe more). No! I don't sleep with mine as it never trims its strings.
