1978 Greco SA-900
Exclusive Lineup of Project Series
The Japan hollow body seekers, listen up - here we have another SA-900 in stock, and again the Greco-made legendary vintage brought me a great pleasure. I am just wondering why I am so excited about this particular model - is it because SA-900 was known to be one of the closest, or even better performing, as some argue, ES335 replica? From my research the 1978 and 1979 Greco catalogs (in Japanese) suggest some hints: SA-900, till SA-1200 made debut in 1980, has been Greco’s most proud and obviously the most expensive semi-hollow body in their SA series. In fact Greco put SA-900 in a separate category named Project Series, which was not in mass production but order-made, indicating that they were handcrafted with much smaller volumes than their low end models.
Looking at the condition of this guitar, if you are ok with the oxidations on metal parts, this guitar will absolutely delight you. The warm and rich tone delivers an absolute pleasure of playing this sunburst gem. One last tip, a series Greco worshipper should never miss obtaining guitars made late 70's and early 80's!
