Greco EG500C Black 1978

Greco EG500C, black, made in Japan 1978. This is superbly cool, no doubt about it. By the mid 70s, Greco were producing Gibson-style offerings that were both historically accurate and extremely well executed. This is a take on the late 60s Les Paul Custom, so it's got the 7-ply binding, gold hardware, block inlays and split diamond headstock and a slick black finish. There's a few marks around the body, but that serves to lend a played-in aura to the sleek look. The neck is a slim 60s style shape, it's super easy on the hands and has remained straight and stable over the decades, plus the fret-end nibs are a nice touch. The tone is big, thick and juicy: heaps of natural low end and sustain, balanced by a rich complexity in the midrange and snappy, talkative top end. There's a lot to love here, it's a really lovely example of vintage Japan goodness. 

Model: Greco EG500C
Made: 1978, Japan (serial L787254)
Finish: gloss black
Body: maple top, mahogany body, chambered
Neck: mahogany with rosewood board, 24.75" scale, 12" radius, slim C shape
Weight: 4.410kg
Mods: none
Pickup: Greco UD humbucker x2
Case: basic non-original gig bag

Cosmetic condition notes: mild finish wear. The headstock has a couple of dimples on the end and some scratches on the back. The neck is clean and smooth in the hands, there's a dent on the back behind the fifth fret and some minor dimples up and down the neck as well as some rub wear on the binding; nothing nasty. The back has a lot of scuffs around the whole body, but no major marks. The sides have a few things to note: dimples on both horns, some dents and scuffs near the jack and a few scuffs and dimples in the elbow area. The front has a decent dent up from the bridge pickup, some dimples around the bridge, scuffs around the knobs, some dimples and rub wear in the elbow area and some standard play wear on the guard and both horns. Overall: good condition (7/10).

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. Frets have some minor wear but they're in great shape, 8/10 for fret life left. Setup with fresh 10/52 Moonshiners strings.
