Hi everyone,

I'm currently looking to buy this locally, could anyone give me more info about it: serial is D812671, looks like it's made in 1981, quite a bit beaten up...

what wood would this be? Matsumoko made?

thanks in advance...

I'll try to upload pictures

It is made by Fujigen and those later Greco copies are extremely nice IMO.
I have a couple of 1981 SE-500 strat copies that have maple boards and sen ash bodies which is similar looking to a tight gran ash. I can't be sure that the bass has the same body wood but I'd say the odds are pretty good.

Thanks Wulfman!

I was told it was Matsumoko made... but I like the FujiGen story even better!

I was hoping it to be an ash body/ maple neck combo...

Like wulfman said, these are probably really good P-basses.

Here is a picture of an SE-500 Strat from 1981. Nice pieces of wood on most Grecos of the time:

I'm usally not a big fan of natural finishes, but that grain is just gorgeous.
