Greco JB420 Sunburst 1973

Greco JB420, sunburst, made in Japan circa 1973. What a beefcake this is! Greco kicked off in the late 60s, and by the mid 70s it was really starting to come together in terms of build quality and sound. This one is early enough to be quirky: the 'Gneco' logo, slightly wonky belly and elbow carves and the skinny neck plate are all deviations that became more accurate to the USA originals in subsequent years. It feels good to play: the neck is a slightly chunky shape that borders on P-bass territory, but it's straight and comfy with good frets and it has that nice played-in feel in the finish. The neck pickup is extra juicy: thick and round and very full, with heaps of punch and warmth. The bridge pickup is a little more angular, especially being so close to the bridge, but it adds a nice little grindy snap when you add some into the mix. The well worn burst finish, vintage tort guard, rounded block inlays and smoky chrome make for a great look; it has plenty of swagger. Grec-yeah
