Greco FV 600

Post by Reha » Sat Jun 01, 2019 10:42 am

Hello forum. I am interested in buying a Greco FV 600 which the seller claims is from 1978. I compared the photos to some other I could find online and the serial number looks odd. Could someone confirm the guitar is legit? The SN reads “0 6933”. Thanks!

It's not a '78. If i had to guess it's a 1990 or perhaps an 1980. Does it say Greco anywhere ?? The pictures aren't a lot to go on.

I just uploaded a photo. The only place it says Greco is on the tross rod cover.

Ok it looks old. Now i'd lean more to 1980 than 1990 but it's hard to say for sure.

Most people would prefer a '80 to a '78 for what it's worth. It's a more desirable year.

Ok, thank you. But from the serial number you would say it is legit? The seller wants US$500 for it. Thanks again.

Looks legit to me.

There was 2 different serial fonts, the one like on yours and one that starts with a letter. You can find examples of your style serial numbers on Reverb and the like.
