Sound Quality

The sound of this guitar is quite amazing. I've owned it for 4 years now and it never ceases to amaze me. Unplugged it has a bright acoustic tone which is very acceptable for unplugged play. Plugged in the sound is lovely, full and rich. The "Groove"humbuckers wereGreco's second-from-the-top pickups of the time. They are not noisy at all but VERY powerful and toneful. I play a wide variety of music including 60's/70's classic rock, harder edged rock and some countrified ballads. It excels in all of these situations.

Reliability/Durability

This was one of the high end Grecos built by their master craftsmen to last the distance. Still in 9.5/10 condition and an absolute joy to play in any situation. I have no doubts it will last many years to come.

General Comments

I've been playing guitar for well over 30 years and in the last few I have come to really appreciate the 80's Japanese guitars for their incredible build quality and performance. Remember the {censored} that America was turning out at the same time? These high end guitars were built by fanatical quality control Japanese MASTERS to the highest specifications possible. I love the fact that it cost a fraction of the cost of a "Name" guitar and kills them in fit, finish, reliability and playability. I've sold ALL my U.S guitars except for my Rickenbacker. I now have 9 Japanese copies and they all perform better than most of the others I've had. If you can find a mid to high end Japanese guitar from the 80's you should BUY IT. You won't regret it.
