Greco ESG-85 LP Junior Style TV Yellow 2000
Greco EGS-85 LP Junior in 'limed mahogany' finish, made in Japan in 2000. This is a fairly 'recent' Greco, made out of the Fujigen plant to an exceptional standard. It feels amazing, everything is exactly where it should be: the frets are perfect, the 60s-style slim neck is comfy, the finish is spot-on, the body is light but feels sturdy... it's really reassuring in the hands. The 'hotliner' P-90 style pickups deliver exactly what you'd expect: thick, creamy lows with articulate biting highs, all brought together but the singing, rich midrange that soapbars do so well. The finish is really awesome, it's got a bit of a creme-caramel look to it. Being a thin coat, it really shows off the grain of the mahogany, and being a matte look, it'll wear pretty quickly with some serious play and soon look like a real vintage gig machine. This is an absolute belter of a guitar, perfect for punk and hardcore or classic rock and supremely satisfying when turned up a little too loud.
