Greco EG600P LP Custom Style Cherry Sunburst 1979
Greco EG600P LP Custom Style, cherry burst, 1979. Do you like your guitars to be totally ace? Well, here you go then. Greco guitars from 1975-85 enjoyed a famed 'golden era'; this dates to the middle of that period. The quality of timber and workmanship on offer is exceptional; it feels amazing in the hands. This one needed a little work on arrival, it's now got fresh wiring and a fretboard repairs as per the notes below. It's a great sounding LP: the Maxon-made U-1000 pickups dole out a creamy, thick and articulate take on the classic LP-growl. These three pickup models don't pop up all that often, so if it's the look you're chasing, don't let it slide.
