Polished the nut slots and applied some oil and now it stays in tune when using the whammy. Played first bracket at a gig and it sounded great. I might need to lift the bass side on pickups for more lower string sound. I've ordered a steel trem block to replace the alloy one but other than that it's...

I've got two Greco Sparkle Sounds. July and Aug 1977. Ones a sunburst in near mint condition, the other in natural in good condition. These have nitro finish and sought after Excel pickups. The downside is the pickups are a different size to what you can buy to replace them. But why bother, they're ...

I've shimed the neck, tweeked the truss rod and got the action where I want. Trouble is I need to take the pickguard off now to see how it's wired cause I can't quite work out what's going on. When you pull the tone knob up it puts the bridge and middle pickup into action even when the 5 way is on t...

Thanks for your posts. I just got the guitar today and plugged it into an amp. It sounds great. The pickups are great and when you pull the knobs up you get the extra tap that puts it into almost a humbucker kind of sound. I prefer it without the extra tap,still pretty fat and sounds great on all pi...

I've been doing a lot of research to find out more about the pickups(SE1t) and have pretty much come up empty handed. They are used on the SE 800j ( Jeff Beck Model) that uses 3 toggle switches instead of a 5 way switch. The pickups have 4 conducters and I presume the "T" stands for tapped. On my gu...

IDE be real happy if it's alder. Just thought the sunburst looked to good for a Greco but if it was made a few months later it would be a Fender. The pickups are hot about 9 something dc and I like hot for my giggling guitars. Certainly looks like a Friday arvo job.
Cheers

NGD 1982 Greco SE 600 Super Sound

I'm waiting on delivery but have some concerns about the originality of the body. There is no neck pocket stamp and fresh routing and sanding that could of removed any markings in the neck pocket. The wood doesn't really look like Sen Ash to me and a lot like Basswood.The seller stated the pickups a...
