I have a Greco SE800 that was nitro finished and lightweight/resonant.
It just has the crappy Jeff Beck pickups and microswitches. Swap in a mint green pickguard and proper pickups and it would be awesome.

That is a good point hiro. I agree with being hesitant to modify it. I've had the SE800J up for sale for a month or so with no bites. Didn't advertise it here though. I think the microswitches and colour combination make that particular model difficult to sell. I don't think the Jeff Beck strats had...

SE800J questions

I've got a 1981 SE800J. This model seems weird to me. Supposedly 60s style strat with Jeff Beck mods that he had at the time. But it is an 8 hole pickguard which I thought was 50s. I read somewhere that the pickups are all the same (ie. no reverse wound middle). I hate the black pickguard on white b...

I am curious about these as well. If anyone has one, can they measure the neck thickness at the 1st fret? I read somewhere that these had nice fat necks (which many of the originals did not). Always wanted an SG but the necks were too thin.

Tremolo arm replacement for 81 SE800?

I seem to recall someone saying the MIM strat tremolo arms fit in the old Grecos. Is that true? I have a super real that is missing the arm

Any Tokai ES with a fat neck?

I am looking into a 335 and just wondered if any of the Tokais have fat necks. It sounds like the newer Edwards are fatter in general. I want something like a 58 or at least 59 LP in terms of thickness.

"Compared to a Martin (price), my '80 - CE350S sure is."

felixcatus,

Is your 350S a solid top? I read an auction in Japan that called it a "special". Seems harder to find info on the acoustics than I thought it would be.

As has been said before buying a guitar based on neck thickness measurements alone will give no gaurentee it'll feel like a nice thick neck when you have it in hand, it all comes down to the profile. I know. Even the R8s seem to vary greatly. I am starting to think that I will need to either buy an...

http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/6351077-post7182.html I saw that one. It is a little heavy and after the exchange it is around 2700 Aus + shipping from Europe. At this point, I am considering doing a trip to Japan anyways, so I will keep an eye out for the Jetstar seat sales. That way I can try out...
