    Won this last week and here it is on my wall. Less than a week from Japan, not bad at all.

    Just a gorgeous instrument and killer tone.

    Thoughts?! Tone?! Been looking at some gibson lp basses and came across one of these and they look a bit cooler imo. What are your impressions?

    Thanks!

    That thing is a beauty. Greco made some killer basses. I wouldn't be surprised if it plays better than an actual Gibson.

    Right? It's also got 24 frets from what it looks like, which is a huge plus for me at least. 2-4 hundred cheaper than gib too. I'm going for a specific sound, so I'm trying to figure out what others use theirs for.

    Dumb wanker from Japan that I purchased from said he could get it to me packed right. Dumb mf did not put enough packing for a guitar in a case. Took a big bump on the front and the back. Structure of the guitar is still good but has some bruises. It is made as well as any gibson historic l have ever owned or played. I'm gonna need to put some foams under the strings because it rings for days. It is a powerful box with big big tone. I absolutely love it. The guy said to send it back and he would refund my money. I said hell no you are gonna send me some money to fix it. I won't ever sell it. I will take some picts after I get it repaired. And just to boot it only weighs 9 lbs. Light for any les paul. And it also has Brazilian wood on the fretboard. Looks identical to my 60 es335 gibson.
