[update]http://www.grecoed.com/good scans of old greco catalogs


Madami na din akong nakikitang naka post na Greco so baka puede din tayong gumawa ng sarili nating thread. Para din to sa mga interested sa Greco so we can share what we know. Here's mine:



It's a 1978 EG700 setneck

[update 052609]
mahogany two piece, two layer back
maple two piece top
mahogany three piece neck
rosewood Fingerboard
locking tuners
Gibson 57 classic/classic plus pickups (still have the stock U-2000)
Goodall NOS oil caps
refretted (used to have fret edge binding)
solid body and not pancaked

Photogenic LP gamit ko nun and narealize ko na kung magpapamana ako sa baby ko ng gitara dapat yung may historical value. Hindi ko kaya ang Gibson hehe kaya I decided to get either a Greco, Tokai or Burny. 

Di naman ako nagsisisi dahil iba talaga ang tunog ng Greco :-)

more pics here :D

No such thing as a brand new Greco. They were discontinued when Gibson filed a lawsuit against them.

Greco still makes guitars.  I recently saw some brand new Greco made Zemaitis guitars in the Hollywood Mesa Boogie store.  The guy said that Greco has an agreement with Zemaitis to reproduce Zemaitis guitars.  The guitars were very nice too.

However, I don't think Greco makes Fender or Gibson copies anymore.

di na gumagawa ng les paul or fender copies and greco so puro used ang mabibili mo. madami nagbebenta dito ng greco mag abang ka lang preferably yung all stock.

tsek mo tong short history ng greco:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greco_guitars
http://www.historicguitar.com/id11.html

yung greco isa sa mga japanese companies (kasama tokai at burny/fernandes) na gumawa ng accurate replicas ng gibson at fender guitars nung 70s pataas. nasa link ang details.

ano pagkakaiba nila? usually shredders gusto ang ibanez. pag makapal ang tunog ang tipo gibson ang gamit. pinaka flexible daw ang fenders.

ano pagkakaiba pag may greco ka? gaya ng sabi ni accento24 u own something that is part of history. yung tipong puede mo ipamana sa anak mo. vintage na maganda ang tunog pero hindi kasing mahal ng gibson or fender.

I don't know kung kailan sila nag start, pero I know that Mesa Boogie Hollywood has been selling them for at least two years now.  Anyway here is a link to the Greco Zemaitis (GZ) Guitars website.
