Have you ever seen one???
There is no way to find photos except from the original Greco catalog.
A very very rare model?
Please link pictures here if you have some.

And how will you classify Greco bass in term of quality?

Super Real
Super Sound
Mercury Bass
Electric Bass
Spacy Sound...

Thank!

I just picked up an '80 Joo Dee Rick copy...can't wait for it! I think those Rick basses are my fave. Not sure if the Joo Dee's had the dual stereo inputs. I know Fernandes did...Greco I think were just mono?



I also have a nice 78 Matsumoku Aria P Bass but uh yeah...sorry to hijack the thread

The Fireglo copy in my link had the proper Stereo Sound that that perfectly replicated the RIC O SOUND, and it also had the dual truss rod

Greco wasn't just going for a copy when they made that bass; they made it a genuine no holds barred replica

those two basses were actually some of the most impressive instruments I have ever seen with the Greco marquee; the detail is amazing ........

Yeah I think most of the makers during the late 70's and early 80's were dead on with the Rick copies. Looking forward to the Joo Dee

Here is my November 1980 (K80xxxx) PB700. Completely original with reverse tuners, aluminum pickgaurd, ...

Got it on yahoo auctions 2 years ago for just ?2700. The description was bad.

Condition is almost like new. Hardly any dings. Just some picking scratches in the paint of the aluminum pick guard. The truss rod was at the end, so the guitar tech took out some of the pick guard, which bothers me a lot. Would have liked to find another solution for the problem.

Well, here it is.
