    I don't know about this particular one, but Greco has a pretty good reputation. A lot of people love their Thunderbird copies, and I heard good things about a Les Paul bass copy too.

    If you decide against it let me know, I might check it out. I'm not far away from it.

    Aloha,

    Go for it. I don't get paid until Tuesday, so I'm SOL on my gas anyhow.

    I notice you got an Alan Woody in your avatar - is it worth it? Been considering picking one up, and Island Guitars just got one in.

    Gross!!!!!!! My first bass was similar. All those japenese EB-0 copies should be wiped from the face of the earth. It's a REALLY lousy bass. Just awful.

    I like the Allen Woody a lot. It is not versatile, but it does what it does very well. If you like an old school tone it is very good. It is well built and plays great too. And very lightweight. Looks cool too.

    Here is a clip of me playing it in a country band a few years ago. It sounds great for that. Now that I'm in a hard rock band I don't use it as much, but I do pull it out for acoustic stuff sometimes.

    Grecos are from the same factory, Fuji gen-gakki, that makes Ibanez and a few other model names. Fuji gen-gakki now makes a lot of the MIJ Fenders. The EB-O is a "lawsuit" model - part of the lawsuit filed by Gibson to halt Japanese copies in the 70's that were often better than the Norlin era Gibsons and CBS era Fenders. Cleaned up, it might be have some collector's cache.
