Greco EJR-82, made in Japan 2010 approx, 'limed mahogany' finish. This model is Greco's most recent take on the classic Gibson Les Paul Junior. Greco's famously brilliant build quality is certainly on offer: this feels exceptionally well balanced, well finished, well appointed and well thought out. The classic LP Jr stuff is there: slab of mahogany, P90 style pickup, basic electronics, rosewood board, wrap-around bridge... just like it always, the simplicity is brilliant. The Greco twists include a cool offset open book headstock, a sensible truss rod adjuster, a slim fast neck with a long tenon joint and superbly cool 'limed' finish. This sounds amazing: thick, juicy, harmonically rich, instantly responsive and charismatically equal parts clear and growly. Not many guitars that look this cool can back up their swagger with exceptional feel and tone, but this little legend really does have it all. Killer!

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. There's some light circular scratches on the sides of the headstock from use of an incorrect string winder. The neck is pretty clean. The back has some very light buckle rash, mostly concentrated near the neck joint. The front has a minor mark behind the bridge. There's a few marks on the bottom edge and one small nick on the top edge. You have to look very closely to see any of these marks, they're all very minor. Overall: very good condition (8.5/10)
