    So I recently bought this 5 kg all maple mojomachine from Japan, and the sound and looks are great. It was listed as a «70’s greco», but nothing more. By the sound, look and feel it’s definately old. I can’t seem to find any serial number on the visible parts of the bass, so without opening up - does anyone know anything about this bass, or relevant information about Greco basses in the 70’s?

    I added some photos, if they’re to any help.
    Much appriciated!

    Nice bass. Bet it's a great player.

    I've always wanted a Greco, so recently bought one myself. Mine has a serial number and is not marked Matsumoku, so mine is a Fuji-Gen (and 1977 by the serial). I think yours is earlier – maybe mid-'70s? Hard to tell from the photos. And was the pickguard replaced on yours (no holes for the pickup cover)?

    Not much info on Greco basses around here, but this thread might help:

    What is the deal with Greco Basses from Japan?

    Hey, thanks a lot! :) The previous owner used to have a bridge cover (drill holes next to bridge), so judging by that modification it would not be unlikely to think the pickguard is replaced aswell.
