Its time to clear some stock out of the Assabet Strings store to make way for new stock...
Here is a very cool 60's Greco electric 12 string. Overall. it's in very good shape and has that unique 60's electric 12 strings sound (well, I guess the 60's were the last time anyone used an electric 12 string). The neck plate says 'Made in Japan' and that's the only identifying info other than the MOP 'Greco' on the headstock. Appears to be all-original.
The neck is a bit beefy but is straight with just a touch of relief and the strings height at the 12th fret on the high E is ~0.10 for very easy playing. I don't see any fret wear at all.
The tuning pegs are a bit touchy but seem stable once the instrument is tuned. A new nut would help the intonation down at that end as the existing nut has a bit of wear. The bridge has adjustable intonation for each string and plenty of available height adjustment both up and down.
The body is in good shape. There is no finish crazing and only a few minor scratches on the top. The back has one big scrape and some buckle rash that could be buffed out if one was motivated.
The controls are quiet and smooth and all
