Oops my pic of the back of the headstock didn't show on my previous post.
It's a Fujigen-made guitar. The Cort-made ones look very different if you look at the headstocks side by side.
Is anyone able to date this Greco FV? https://www.digimart.net/cat01/shop1484/DS04379896/ Given it's got a neck-thru design and the original rrp (GV-90), I'm going to take a guess and say it doesn't have nitro, but it'd be cool to know what kind of pickups it has. It doesn't have the sheen that poly guitars do, so my guess would be an oil finish or matte clear of some variety.
That gig bag says late 70's.
Good observation. I looked through the 70s and early 80s greco catalogues and couldn't find anything. Furthermore, the Vs used 'FV' rather than 'GV' as their model designations during that time, it appears. So after looking through them all, I finally found examples in the 1996 and 1997 catalogs. These use an oil finish and are equipped with GH-1s. Know if the GH-1s are any good? This baby would suit some double creams, I think.
which series has such a headstock inlay?

Yes, that's a 90's inlay!
all 90's greco they had it?
thin white layer (aged White), double bound, gold hardware, gold speed knobs, creme pickup selector switch ring = RR ?
They used the split diamond from around late 1987-1990 then started with this one. Some were made by Tokai and some by Fujigen. The serial number stamping font (or lack of serial number will give a hint as to which one.
i have neck heel cap.
I read this topic and think it is TERADA but i'm not sure what model is it
EGC or RR
Can anyone help identify the model of these Maxon humbucker pickups.
Installed in a 1974 Greco, which I believe are original to the guitar.
Also neck has pearloid inlays.
What color is the pearloid - brown?
Thanks for any help!
I can't help with the pickups, sorry, but I think your inlays are just yellowed with age.
Greco Shrike I sold a few years back...
Guitar also has YFG tuners, does anyone know who made those?
Look to be original, but no idea what Greco was using back in '74
That may be it!
Not the guitar above, but a mystery Greco. headstock is Mint Collection, no serial number, fret edge binding, striped ebony fretboard, mop dots:
It was sold as a SA61-90, but has flamed top, back, sides, ebony board and it is Tokai made. Compared pickup cavities to 81 ES-150 I have and are the same as the Tokai.
What years did Tokai make Greco's?
Pulled couple of pots:
Any ideas on model or year?
84 was last year catalogs show 90 or 120. after that 60 and 70.
Got a full pic of it? Bloody beautiful!
Sure, some quick pics w/ my phone
Back of neck and sides are sprayed more like a Les Paul Custom.
89 and 90 for sure maybe others dont know...
Do you know what model?
'89 Greco catalog only shows SA64-70, which wouldn't have come w/ ebony board and FEB?
89 and 90 were years Tokai made Greco's?
