About This Listing

Beautiful 1972 pre-lawsuit Greco PE 520 Les Paul Recording Guitar with the super hot Greco Pickups......good vibes, very good condition, and freshly refretted and overhauled by SF Guitarworks.  Pro setup with 10s and plays just great. When I got it, the frets were shot and one pickup was dead and the electronics were scratchy.  No abuse however, just ancient crud and honest play wear. I had the frets professionally replaced as they needed it. All the electronics have been gone over, the bridge pickup rewound by Seymour Duncan, and everything is working on this cool guitar. 

These guitars, Made in Japan, were modeled after the strange Gibson Les Paul Recording Guitars. Out of Phase Switches and all, this guitar is as close to the Gibson as they could get. They were only made in 1972 and 1973.  I believe some of these were branded Ibanez as well.

This guitar is all original except the forementioned frets and the cream plastic switch tip.  The guitar is in great shape with only one small body ding, as is the pickguard and tuners.. All the knobs, tailpiece, Bridge, Tailpiece, strap name it...all original and in great shape. Only superficial dings and scratches here and there. This guitar is in fabulous shape!

The controls take some getting used to. It has an out of Phase switch that allows in Phase or out of Phase. I belive it works in the middle position. It has a 3 way pickup selector switch, tone knobs with 3 settings and another tone knob that works in a couple of the selector settings. A lot of options for tonal settings on this cool guitar. AND, they all work properly.

Comes with a new hardshell case.  Weight is 8.8 lbs.

Sold as-is and is not returnable,  $60 Shipping for the lower 48
