Sound check heads were turning as soon as I plugged in and I couldn't believe how good it sounded. It was fun. This guitar is thicker than any of my others. Not sure why but it's cool.

Mitch is representin' !! Looks good on you.

I just got my '89 EGC68 60 Ebony (colour) in and am busy with it, didn't come with a wheel though but man is it ever dirty, needs a new nut etc.

Enjoy the fruits of your long labour

I feel sorry for people who don't know about Greco. But I rarely tell anyone. LOL So not that sorry I guess. LOL An old friend who's touring and playing new custom made stuff and PRS has never played one of my Grecos but he said to me "oh great when your dead and gone you are leaving firewood to your family. I didn't even respond. LOL Like the Grecos don't appreciate? Wrong. But I'm not pushing them on anyone. Most people think I'm nuts and don't care anyway..

isn't this gold hardware?
Did I miss something, I thought you said you only found nickel HW for it?

Either way, it looks killer, any more pics?

Yes its all gold I went the extra mile to say the least and made it happen the way it should happen. It actually doesn't have the metal pointer rings around the knobs yet I will aslo do that to give it the finishing touch. It's a great guitar. Light and full of Dry Z tone but the guitar has a thud to it all it's own. A real thick low end and a rich chimy high end. It's a great guitar. After the Glaser refret and plek and the dry Z's and the new knobs and the cleaning of the paint and the Evertune. And of course the removal of the wheel. It went from a broken down joke to a world class instrument. It had the bones though. Gotta have that to begin with.

What's the cost of an Evertune install?

man, do I like this guitar!
Except for the evertune (which is the savior for this guitar, apparantly) I really like the looks on this one!

Sorry been away from this world for a long time. Yes the marriage of the Evertune and this guitar is a GOOD one. Best one so far. I know it doesn't look great with it but man does it save me alot of headaches live. This guitar friken ROARS with Dry Z's. So good. I also use a ToneRite on all my guitars and it's REALLy opened up this white one. I'm looking into a JR for a friend and I see a LOT more Burny's than Grecos and I'm wondering if I should get him a Burny I don't know them like I know Greco's but I know they are good.

I'd hang on for a Mint Collection Greco rather than make do with a Burny. The earlier Burny TV Models are supposed to be good but the Burny Rockn Roll stuff aren't up to much and seem to benefit from the their MIJ association rather than actual build/sound. Not knocking Burny's as I've a couple and bang for buck I think they're hard to beat for value but just not necessarily the best MIJ's out there

You could also try the Orville By Gibson DC's too as they're very good also. Try one out if you get the chance though as I'm pretty biased towards Fujigen built stuff, I think between 80-90 the stuff they were making for the major brands was hard to fault.

Thanks. I recommended a Mint collection Jr to a friend and he complained he couldn't get it to tune or stay in tune. I recently played it and he was right. It was WAY off. ?? Anyway he will never sell it but I would. My Super Real smokes it. So they aren't all good.
