1974 Greco SA-700
The very first generation
It is highly intriguing to explore the difference of this 1st generation model. The iconic star-printed tuners are nostalgic? How about the location of strap pin. It used be on the top left hand of cutaway, but the previous owner preferred on the back. Moving this left a trace and can be identified by the photo below.
Lacquer wear is found on hill and rear neck. Chips off the headstock top is minor but need mentioned. Apart from this, do you see any indication on this guitar being ever played? It is really a mystery, how can a over 40 year-old guitar stay in such a museum quality? The previous owner admits he replaced the wiring, as you see in the photo of orange caps, but did he ever strum? Frets are as if never touched. Plugging the guitar into amp, I hear the surreal resonance. Who wants to share this goose bump experience? (To those who wonder the initials on the trussrod cover: Greco shipped customized trussrod with the buyer's initial imprinted as marketing campaign)
