Description

Hello! I am selling a 1981 Greco Spacy Sound, a faithful and unabashed copy of a 1970s era Fender Precision Bass.This bass seems to have been spared the indignity of ill-advised and unnecessary modifications over the years, which is a real blessing. Things are only original once, you know.This one has a contoured P body that appears to be made of agathis. It was sprayed with a classy 2-tone sunburst with a bright red in it, and a 3-ply white/black/white pick guard.This Greco?s 4-bolt neck is maple and the fretboard is still in good shape, front and back. The 20 medium frets are still in great shape, with very little visible wear. It has the typical 1 5/8? P width nut (plastic), but the neck is not overly chunky. I would call it a medium profile C shape. The truss rod adjusts at the heel, and it still turns easily.The Spacy Sound headstock shape is an exact copy of one that would be found on a Precision Bass, and the Greco logo is styled to resemble Fender?s. Lawsuit basses always have campy small print on their headstock decals, and this one informs you that Greco is for the ?Brazen Picker Professional? Word, my brothers.he hardware is good. The machine heads are 4-screw open-gear Greco-marked JH-6 pieces that look like Fender tuners, chrome barrel knobs, and the bridge is a copy of a 5-screw Fender unit with 2 extra screw holes in the front corners.The pickups and electronics also appear to be original to the bass. There is not much to say about them except that they are exactly what you would expect ? a split coil pickup with volume and tone pots.This Spacy Sound is not terrible heavy, coming in around 8 pounds 14 ounces according to my digital scale. It is pretty easy on the back, not to mention the eyes. And it is attractive. It is in good overall condition, particularly when you consider it is 31 years old. The finish does not have very many blemishes and it still shiny ? it has not been abused. There is visible corrosion on the tuners, neck plate and bridge. See the photos for details of the condition.Included is a nice gig bag. It will be well-packed for shipping.I am asking for $500 obo and insured UPS ground shipping is included within the 48 states.More pictures here: http://s146.photobucket.com/albums/r...und/?start=all
