Up for auction is this Greco '57 Goldtop that is all original - it was Made in Japan in the finest age of Japanese guitar making - 1982.  I love the vintage cloth wiring on this guitar, the super long tenon, the fret edge binding and the original Greco PAF pickups.  I also love the color of the gold on this one - it's just perfect; I have seen a lot of poor gold colors on guitars but this one is just the right shade - not that 'sparkle' gold that some cheap guitars have.  The light brown color on the back of the guitar is perfect as well - same shade as the orginal '57's.  As soon as you pick up this guitar you will feel the quality of vintage Japanese craftsmanship - it's amazing to get all these features on a guitar for under $2000 and this one is starting at only $800!  You will also notice the tuners on this guitar; they are the orginal Greco Deluxe tuners with a sort of marbeled look and they hold tune amazingly well.  The neck on her is a nice rounded 50's profile that is leaning towards a thinner 50's profile; but not as thin as a 60's neck.  It has about the same profile as my Gibson Les Paul's with the 50's profiles.  The original 1982 PAF vintage style pickups really sing - they are very close to '57 Classics and provide a great classic rock tone with a cranked tube amp and a chord - you don't need pedals with this guitar; quality old growth wood vintage Japanese craftsmanship the long tenon bone nut these pickups = TONE TONE TONE.  Full size pots and vintage caps - no wacked out circuit board electroni
