Really nice vintage Japanese Greco semi-hollow, probably an SA-550. Dates from mid-late 70s period but not totally sure so dont crucify me. Would have been built at FujiGen. A real old Japanese lawsuit guitar this one. Nice vintage vibe to it.Cherry red with the binding now turned yellow and showing the superficial cracking you usually see on these old Grecos. It has a beautifully streaked Rosewood fingerboard (pics). Very well built at FujiGen with a good strong factory volute, fret end binding and split block inlays. Centre blocks construction giving it a good solid feel. Great sounding original Maxon humbuckers.
Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine & plenty of life left in the frets. It's a great player and has seen some action over the decades so if youre looking or a sterile shop floor guitar she aint for you.That said, its very, very clean for such an old guitar and the ageing is just light. Nothing bad has happened to it. There have been no breaks or repairs. All the metal hardware has taken on a nice dull grey patina adding to the vintage vibe. A very cool vintage Japanese 335.
