Imported model, very good overall condition

Country: Japan
Condition: Very Good

Greco is a Japanese guitar maker that began in 1967.
Production in Fuji-gen, the factory that produced the no less famous Japanese Fender.
Perfect copies of the Gibson. To simplify: the 'Gibson made in Japan' at a perfect price-quality ratio. We know the excellence and rigour of Japanese makers.
Uncommon on the French market and rightly wanted, our Japanese network allows us to offer them.

GRECO ES335 Cherry Trans made in 1977 in Japan.

100% original. Vintage condition. Certified No Break, No Crack. Very good overall condition, few use marks (see photos for more details). The playability, the comfort, the sounds are more than excellent. The varnish reveals the grain of the wood. Beautifully crafted. It’s understandable why these Grecos made Gibson pull out his hair... They are almost the same. The binding covering the frets on the fingerboard is present... like a Gibson ;-)
When it comes to playing it: Light, it’s a real joy. The fingerboard has a great feeling, very dense rosewood. Perfect balance, the pickups are ultra-precise, incisive ans powerful, true good vintage. Suitable for blues, rock and more...
This model with the floating bridge is popular with Garage Rock groups. The band JET is a fan.
Fingerboard/frets very good condition.
Must be tried. Rare on the market.
N.B.; we preferred to keep it completely original. The 4 new potentiometers will be included if you want to change the sputtering knobs. Normal after 40 years of use :-)
Highly sought after, from Greco’s best years.
By comparison, you’d pay 3 times as much for a Gibson ES335...
Comes in a period vintage case.


60’ type neck
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Fittings: chrome plated
Pickups: Original chrome plated Humbucker JAP
Mechanics: Original GRECO vintage chrome plated oil bath.
Serial number: L77992

    Guitar arrived quickly, well packed and it is a nice guitar, only it is not a Gibson SG 'PRO II' , the pro has a bigsby and 2x volume and tone, but it doesn`t matter I am very happy with trhe guitar.

    De gitaar arriveerde een aantal dag later, prima verpakt. De gitaar ziet er puntgaaf uit, zoals de foto's al aangaven. Een volgende keer zou ik zeker weer een gitaar kopen bij deze verkoper.

    Ok, mais le pet sur la guitare peu visible sur les photos est plus important que supposé.

    Les photos sont faites en studio mais nous ne faisons AUCUNE retouche naturellement. Nous faisons au mimimum 10 photos par instrument sous les aspects principaux. Vous avez une guitare d'occasion pratiquement à moitié prix de la valeur estimée.
    Cordialement
