||1996-97 Greco L-7|
From acoustic to jazz and blues
Up for sale is late 90's Greco acoustic guitar L-7, you may guess where this model is named from. Apparently inspired by Gibson L-7, especially of 1950 vintages, the antique mahogany body instantly catches a collector's eye. The guitar, according to Greco's 1996 catalog, was introduced without pickup and the previous owner installed one near the bridge. Interestingly, Greco also started selling its upscale model L-10 from 1997, here with the pickup attached right under the fretboard.
So how does this beauty play and sound? L-7 has a acoustic gene so you definitely hear calm and mellow tone but it in fact sounds more deep and bluesy. Closing the eyes and strumming the guitar, you may feel as if you are in a 1940 bebop jazz band. Very minor scratches, no dings no chips, barely no oxidation, staying in excellent condition. A Yamaha hardcase flies to you the new owner of this rate and nostalgic vintage.
