89 Greco Super Real SA-700 on the way

Post by marcusnieman » Sat May 12, 2012 12:35 pm

Just pulled the trigger on this creampuff.... should be here next week from Austin. Hard to find alot of info on these later Super Reals (they came out again in 88 and 89 only for the SA models). Has Fralin pickups in it but the originals are being sent. No markings on the back of them.... curious.

I sure did... that one is a beauty. Noticed that the F holes are bound too. Real pretty. I just love these lighter, amber bursts. I already have a 91 SA64-90 in a similar finish. Took me awhile to get used to the 60's taper neck but now I like them....

Looks like the one I just bought belonged to seller Chingo before.... here's the link and a ton of pics:

Marcus...

Nice work on the SA! I was just having a look at the one I bought and I COMPLETELY missed the fact the "F" holes were bound! Gee I hope that means it's a high model! Dammmit you've got me all excited again!! It'll be a partner to my other SA-64-70. Have a look at her here.

I also note that the colour of yours is similar to the one I bought. Not really Tobacco SB but more reds and yellows.........interesting!

Cheers

Dave

Thanks.... I'm giddy with excitement.

Yeah, your new one is a peach - never seen one with bound F holes - you've also got the larger block inlays that start on the first fret.... very cool. That SA64 of yours is sweet too..... aren't they great guitars??

Here's my 91 SA64-90..... same amber color. It has the Greco Screamin' pickups in it. These have ceramic magnets and they get mixed reviews but I've got to say that these are some of the fattest sounding humbuckers I have:

Marcus...

Yes I've seen that SA64-90 of yours before and it inspired me to try and find one in that colour hence my bid on the unknown SA the other day. They are outstanding guitars and should get just as many kudos as the L.P's IMHO. My SA64-70 came with '57 classics already installed so I don't know about the Screamin' pickups much. It has a wide, flat neck and is a joy to play! Rich, full and jangly if needed but on the bridge with crunch it really howls.

I'm not a fan of L.P.s at all really. I sold my EGF850 last year because it just didn't sound like I wanted it to. The PU-2 pickups that command so much attention here just didn't do it for me at all. I know some people love them but to me a humbucker REALLY shines with some AIR to work with.

Dave

Love the semis.

that that guy on the right with the harmonica looks like Hash Brown :)

I'm still kicking myself for not buying that Henry Qualls Strat he had for sale @ the Dallas Guitar Show 30 years ago :(

Nice acquisition. You look good playing it. It’s probably time to sell me your White Greco SG Junior. ; )

8) That SA700 is gone but I still have my Mint Collection SA64-90 and I may be selling that soon.... time to clear some gear.

Fortunately, that white Junior doesn't take up a lot of space. Check your PM's
