1981 Greco SA-1200
The Ultimate Greco Hollow Body
A simple and succint statement - if you are a Japan vintage hollow body lover, Greco SA-1200 stands at the very top seat, particularly as far as the pickups are concerned. Quite a few of top quality Japan guitars equip themselve with flame maple, spruce with rare piece of rosewood, but Dry Z pickups with their hallucinating sound can only be found in Greco SA-1200 and EGF-1200.

To speak more of Dry Z pickups, Greco was extremely keen to carbon-copy PAF pickups. The way they did - Repeating the magnetic output test (hundreds times most likely) by adjusting the strength of original USA-made coils until the engineers find the sound so-called super real, or even surreal. Accoridng to expression in their original Japanese catalog in 1981, the DRY pickups breathe and pulsate the very super real resonance and tonality.

In terms of maintenance, this guitar is in immaculate condition, showing minor dents around the bottom binding and trace of nut holes on the tuners. Currently Kluson Delux are put on. The case is original as well, with the metal place proudly stating Super Real Series. Welcome to the world of Z, beyond reality!
