I am now wondering about the truthfulness of the seller myself. I’m guessing the seller was one of many “re-sellers” doing business on eBay. As a result of my own digging, I was able to track down this guitar to Grasshopper guitars in Tokyo. Apparently that’s where the reseller found it. I called th...

Bad experience with US customs buying Tokai made Greco

Had my first bad experience with customs. They would not let a Tokai made Greco through U.S. customs that I bought on eBay from Japanese seller. The seller said it happens every once in a while now and it’s very random, although much more common. He said the recent trade war with China has contribut...

Here's a 1982 Fujigen made Greco Super Real DC I used to own. 1st fret neck thickness .853", 12th fret .984". I am an idiot for selling it as these are rarer than rare. Not only that, it was a great player. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0RYcJF0iXc/Tn35-SqLQ8I/AAAAAAAABjw/_llR9zoh590/s720-Ic42/...
