Very nice!

Just missed out on an Greco SG special recently that was from around the same time. They really have the same appeal and vibe as a vintage SG without the price tag.

Oh, man - been waiting to see this! That is killer. I would hit it in a heartbeat. :w00t:

So that's an SS63-70, right? Shame the lyre vibrato cover is gone but everything else looks great. Does it have Maxon PU-2 pickups or the Double Tricks?

I knew you'd like it. ;D

PU-2, so Maxon i guess, 820315 is what the pickups say and yes SS63-70.

You need one of these.

I know. :fp:

But I'll be happy enough if you play the shit out of it.

wow, what a fantastic SG. i recently picked up a greco SG myself, a SS600 Kanako Nakayama sig. a bit later than yours, they were from 89-91 and probably made in korea.

it's very light and has a nice small neck. i don't know what pickups are in it (presumably not particularly nice ones as it's a lower-end student model i think) but it sounds very nice to me. i'm really happy with it, much closer to my preferences than any epi i've tried.

Works pretty good, though im not really a heavy trem user. And yes, there's no spring.

the one on my firebird is really nice. doesn't divebomb, but good for a nice wobble here and there. holds tune really well

That's nice. Probably Korean, like you say..but i bet just as good as mine. I wonder if they had lyre models from Korea.

I like that case. Did you buy that separately?

Thx, im beyond happy with the guitar. Its very lightweight and resonant. I think the missing lyre cover makes it look unique and cool too.
