Many players love the look, feel and tone of their Japanese made guitars. A lot of folks feel that Grecos were the best made and most accurate guitars of the copy era. Greco guitars were seldom seen in the states but enormously popular in Japan. Greco was so good that Fender ended up using them to build the famous JV series Japanese Strats. The Fijugenn Gakki plant produced most of Greco's highest regarded guitars and would continue to produce Fender's popular reissue Strats and Teles. Incredible quality and attention to detail in these guitars. Here's a very cool Greco LP model. A very cool recreation of Lester Polfous' famous axe. It's hard to find exact specs on these guitars but I'm assuming this is an EG59-60 model with construction details similar to other Japanese Lesters of the era. Probably a mahogany body with a laminated flame maple top. Mahogany neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. Dual Greco pickups deliver big tone. A Tuneomatic bridge, Stopbar tailpiece, and vintage tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is cherry sunburst and is set off by chrome hardware . Good attention to detail including the open book headstock and split diamond inlay. A great guitar at a great price!

This Greco plays well and has nice tone. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. The pickups deliver a variety of tones. Everything works as it should. This guitar shows normal wear and tear for its age and is in VG condition. Moderate pick, clear, and belt scratches, as well as moderate indents and dings. The hardware shows moderate corrosion. Comes in a Gibson gigbag.

These guitars are fairly uncommon in the states. Most US players have taken to importing them in from Japan and having to deal with customs fees, high shipping costs, plus waiting for weeks and hoping your guitar survives a trip across the ocean. Here's one that's ready to go. One of the coolest guitars of the copy era.
