    Picked this gem up from a seller in Russia not too long ago. It's an old MIJ Greco T-Bird clone. Very straight, fast neck, level frets, very low action. The pickups sound great too. Gigged her a couple of times and wow! Pretty damn amazing...

    Beautiful!
    There are some Greco Les Paul clones here with 3 of those pickups in the(chrome) and they do sound very good.

    Congratulations!


    Greco Thunderbird are awesome, mostly unknown - which is a shame. I have a Greco Thunderbird II and it just RAWRS like no other bass!

    How's the neck-dive on this copy? I've heard a few of the clones lack the Gibby dive that the real deal suffers from.

    The neck dive is there but not terrible. Proper strap button placement and a thick strap help combat most of the dive.
