Greco Mint Collection SS63-60 SG Style Black 1989
Greco Mint Collection SS63-60, made in Japan 1989, black. These are very well regarded in MIJ-nerd circles, and not for no reason. This is a lightweight SG with a classic mildly chunky neck, but it's very well balanced and doesn't 'dive' like so many others do. The quality of fret and finish work is exceptional, you can really feel the love and care that's gone into the build. The worn black finish is looking awesome, it's got three decades of stories to tell without looking too ragged from it's misadventures. If you're after a superb SG with a heap of mojo that's light enough to play all night, here's your new Batman. Yes, you're Robin in this analogy, sorry!
