late 70s early 80s ground wire and truss rod nut question

Post by StJimmy » Sun Apr 13, 2008 5:14 pm

Can anyone tell me what kind of ground wire Greco used in the late 70s early 80s? Was it solid wire, or a smallish braided strand, or a generic multi-strand with a white colored plastic jacket?

Also, does anyone have a nice clear detailed photo of the truss rod adjustment cavity so I can see what kind of nut they used on the truss rod and whether they painted inside the cavity?

Thanks.

My oldest Greco is from 81.' It has solid core ground wire and a brass truss rod nut like a Gibson.

Thanks. Is the inside of the truss rod cavity painted black like a Gibson? I've seen a guitar locally that may be a Gibson but may also be an older Greco, so I'm trying to nail down the small nuances that would allow a person to tell for sure.
