Greco is the same as Ibanez . Ibanez is a name that was used to export to the US. Greco was the domestic name. The guitars are the same spec. Most Ibanez models had a Greco counterpart. I owned a Greco iceman that was pretty cool for several years.
I still have a 78 Greco EX-800 that is a copy of Rick Nielsen's Hamer #0000. My guitar was made the same month that Cheap trick waz over there recording the 'Budokan' album-talk about working fast, those guyscoud crank out a near dead-nuts copy in no time!
I got a question....are the Greco explorers with the bolt on necks any good?
I've never seen this Steve.. can you post a photo?
They got the knobs right-even the octave dot spacing too! The pickups (doubke cream and covered) are like Rick's was in '78. This one is cherryburst, but they did it in the correct browner burst and black. I'll probably have this refinished like Rick's.
