1975 Greco EG700 Standard Vintage Guitar Ebony w/ Case & Maxon U-2000, Japan Fujigen


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1975 Greco EG700B in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. Crafted in an era where Greco was refining their model specs and dialing in very faithful iterations of Gibson's most popular models, this EG700B is an upscale Fujigen-made instrument rarely seen outside Japan.

When it comes to playability, feel, and tone, the Greco instruments excel, and this guitar comes complete with its original Maxon-made U-2000 humbuckers. One of the more sought after vintage Japanese PAF iterations, the U-2000 pickups deliver a tone that is detailed and rich, with plenty of definition and power from the bridge pickup, and more warmth and fullness in the neck position. Traditional tonewoods include a mahogany body with carved two-piece maple top paired with a one-piece mahogany neck and bound rosewood fretboard, ensuring a lively natural tone with excellent sustain. Weighing 9lbs 7oz, this EG700B has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with fresh 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The one-piece mahogany neck has slender '60s-style C-shaped profile carve with round shoulders and a fast, effortless feel, measuring .800” deep at the 1st fret and .940” at the 12th. The bound rosewood fretboard is a particularly dark cut of this tonewood with pearloid trapezoid inlay and pristine stock medium jumbo fretwire with fret edge binding. This Greco plays cleanly in every register with a straight neck and responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod. True to classic Gibson spec, the scale length is 24 3/4” and the original bone nut measures 1 11/16” in width. The headstock features an inlaid pearloid Greco logo and “Standard” truss rod cover. The “Greco Guitar”-branded tuners with Schaller-style buttons turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch.

On the body, the electronics function accordingly, with a three-way pickup selector and individual Volume and Tone controls for each pickup. The pickups have Gibson-style braided wire, with original five digit Maxon stamps on the baseplates dating to 1975. Hardware includes the Tune-o-Matic bridge and corresponding stopbar, both with gleaming chrome plating. Plastics include modern pickup rings and a quartet of black reflector cap knobs. Cosmetic wear on the gloss Ebony finish includes a small area of light buckle rash central to the lower bout on the back, some scuffing along the pick path, and a handful of minor scratches in the clear coat on the body. The smooth gloss finish on the neck profile is also clean; beyond a small scuff behind fret 5 that is imperceptible to the palm.

The original black tolex hardshell case with red plush interior is included. The case is extremely well-kept with functional latches and the original handle.
