1974 Greco Japan TC-500 Telecaster Custom (Made in Japan)
The Greco TC-500 was the Japanese take on the newly released Fender Telecaster Custom. These are one of the harder to find guitars from Greco due to the limited release and their popularity amongst players and collectors.
This one's been used over the years but has held up nicely Neck is playable as is, frets are low but still function. Electronics are all good.
With the poor quality coming out of the Fender factory in the 1970's, buying a Japanese guitar from this period can be a much better choice. The Japanese factories were producing high quality instruments throughout the 1970's, whereas the cost-cutting measures that CBS had implemented on Fender had a huge impact on the quality and consistency of their instruments. If you're after a vintage Fender-style guitar from the 1970's then you'll save money and gain quality in buying a Japanese guitar like this!
