I have to let go of some guitars.

So, what we have here is a early Greco SE800 Super Real, made in December 1979.

Overall its in great condition for its age. Just a few dings and some buckle wear on the back. The pickguard and pickups have been replaced with modern Fender pickups by a previous owner. It has been played a lot which results in some fretwear. I think it needs some work here soon. Besides that it plays and sounds great.

As most Super Real SE800's is has a huge neck.

Asking price is 900?, shipping in Germany included, EU add 25?.

Here are the pictures.

Gorgeous! So is that a one or two piece body?

I bought it and saw that there?s a humbucker routing under the pickguard.
The electronics are totally messed up.

What a shame.

First he told me that he would refund money if I want to send it back.
But now I don?t get any answer since a few weeks.

If I have to keep her I must redo the whole electronics and maybe a refret.
That?s not a bargain at all

The listing said he thinks the frets need work soon and the wiring is possible to fix fairly easily. However, not mentioning the humbucker body modification is just bad.

Well, I knew about the frets and the electrics can be done.
But I?m really sad about the routing.

It's unacceptable not to disclose something like that...

Agree with Villager. What a damn shame and a sin to do that to such a beautiful and well made guitar. A clear case of someone not knowing what they had .... or perhaps during the time that MIJ guitars were considered junk.

I put in new electronics and H?ussel pickups.

It also got a refret.

Sounds and plays really good now.

The HB routing was redone by my luthier.

Do you think I should put in some original excel pickups like these?

They should be the right one for a SE-800 I guess.

Here he is, call him and ask him - maybe he?s not happy with negative comments in the web...
