1975 Japanese Thinline Telecaster in very good condition. Has recently had a full set up and is playing well.

Here is some recent feedback we received from a customer who bought a similar Greco:

Communication from Tony was fantastic and the guitar arrived within 48 hours of me paying for it- as for the guitar, I am smitten, I was saving for a 75 vintage telecaster thin line and for a less than a third of the cost I have this beauty – the tone is amazing and the playability and looks too… needless to say I am HAPPY!

It’s no secret that during the seventies some of the good Japanese factories were capable of building better Fenders than Fender, and this is an example of how good they became. Greco’s Fenders were so good that they were eventually amalgamated by Fender Japan with the builders who made these guitars going on to build Japanese Fenders. These Grecos are an office favourite for demos which is a good excuse to always have some around.

In great condition and playing well.

Head is in very good cosmetic condition the usual few dings appearing towards the top edges. The neck is in excellent condition with very few signs of wear. The body is also excellent with only a few dings and scratches scattered about the guitar. The metal sections of the guitar show very little oxidation.
