1973 "Greco" Japan Les Paul Electric Guitar (Brown Sunburst)
Upgraded by the previous owner with a new switch, jack, knobs, pickups, bridge and tailpiece. It's in great overall condition for a 40+ year old Les Paul. Nice weight to it, huge beefy sound! The headstock logo was removed and replaced with a Gibson logo (which was also then removed..). This was common in Japan as they didn't value Japanese built guitars during the 1970's. Glorious brown sunburst flame top!
Japanese Gibson-style guitars (like this one) are a great alternative to a modern Gibson/Epiphone. With the hit and miss quality of modern Gibson guitars, a Japanese guitar from the 70's or 80's can prove to be a higher quality instrument that's been played in nicely. Many of these guitars will also cost you a fraction of what a new Gibson will and are also more affordable than a new Epiphone!

*Note - there's no way to confirm this was a Greco, but it matches the specs/quality of the other Greco's i've had through and was definitely made in the same factory during the 1970's.
