    P1020726.JPG Bought off e bay a couple of yrs back. Had never heard of Greco before. Must say i really like it but have changed a few things on it. I swapped the pick ups which i don't think were original (well maybe one was) one had made in USA on the other didn't. Really pleased with it. 1981

    Interesting is it a plain gold or a sparkle? how does it play, i had one Greco it was chambered with a clown burst and a pancake body, it was an E500 i think?? played ok very resonant but not a shade on my burny, but i did pay about £230 for it so couldnt complain

    Plain gold. Plays good but for some reason my usual 9 to 42s seemed too heavy for my fingers so dropped to 8 to 38s, much better.

    Out of interest, what pickups did you fit?

    Bridge p/up is off a Randy Rhoads Jackson (unsure of actual model) neck was off an Ibanez (again unsure) hi output type.

    Nice GT !! I'm a fan of the Greco guitars myself.
