Greco Mint Collection SS-600P2 SG Style Black 1990
Greco SS-600P2 SG style, black, made in Japan 1990. These Mint Collection Greco guitars enjoy a great reputation; they're brilliantly made instruments. This is a whole lot of fun: it's lightweight but still well balanced, looks super mean and sounds terrific. The pickups are a slightly overwound PAF style, so there's a nicely balanced slightly hot output that is happiest pushing a tube amp to a meaty breakup. The immediate attack and snappy growl is perfect for punk and classic rock rhythm parts; it's addictive to hands and ears. The neck is moderately chunky with perfect frets and a great feel, it's lively and resonant in the hands. The black-on-black finish is classic and very slick; it'll certainly work well on stage. It'd be difficult to find a legit Gibson that sounds and plays as well as this for anything like this price, so hey, here's your ticket to the party.
