Greco SE500Published on 04/05/08 at 11:40
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
This stratum is Japanese. Manufacture of the brand purchased by Greek and replaced with Fender Fender JV. She 1978. Micros original sleeve mapple 21 frets (big stick), so 70's head. Originally it avit a selector 3 positions that I replaced with 5 positions. Alder body.

UTILIZATION

A big round vintage that we have to do (which is not an Ibanez). Access to acute classic (it is a stratum). It is heavy which is not displease me.

SOUNDS

I play a lot of blues, rock and some funk and it is serious. It did not sound very chattering, it's still very round so can be a little more vintage. I play with a Fender Twin Reverb at home and in a fender champion 600 apart and it does, that's it!......

SOUNDS

I play a lot of blues, rock and some funk and it is serious. It did not sound very chattering, it's still very round so can be a little more vintage. I play with a Fender Twin Reverb at home and in a fender champion 600 apart and it does, that's it! Impossible to find a sound like that unless they put a price staggering. These guitars are very close copies of the fenders of the 60 and 70 as well as those of the brand Tokai. So successful that the boxes were carried on by Fender.
I find the microphone a little garish acute but may be at the end of his life the poor.

With a maxon od 808 or even a big chick is quickly search and find sounds hendrixiens.

OVERALL OPINION

I have a few months. Ordered on ebay in Japan it was not cheap but it's still decent.
The + is in the pure vintage style with incredible sound and a high quality manufacturing.
The - it is old and something bothers me is being forced to adjust the strings high enough to avoid a buzz on the first fret. The solution would of course adjust the ttruss road but I was hesitant to change the convexity of a round of 30!
To be continued ...

In short the days where I want to have a vintage sound of an old-strat is happiness in its purest form. The next day if I want a guitar that is given a very long time, new and perfectly set I sulk. In fact some days I do not part with it for anything else and I dream a Highway One Start.

But less than 400 euros it's still a great deal!
