1977 Greco Japan '63 Thunderbird II TB-80 Tobacco Burst with Bartolini PU. The price is $850 + shipping depending on your location.
Here's the one of the early Greco basses that is actually period-accurate for the instrument it copied. Usually, the early models had strange hardware and lame build quality — not for that one! This is the oldest Thunderbird replica I've ever seen, and it happens to be in great condition still. The neck is real straight and the truss rod turns in both directions easily if you ever needed to adjust it.
This bass has some remarkable updates, making it way better than in stock version. Original pickup is replaced with Bartolini T4 humbucker, which provides famous Old T-Bird sound. Hardware and panels were changed to black to make it looking in the way of modern T IV (really love these small tuners). It is built like a tank and has a really gnarly tone from its one pickup — for me it sounds almost like a grand piano, easily going into old Jefferson Airplane'ish overdrive sound (with no mud, for sure). Bass comes with Epiphone softcase.
It has a few body chips and scratches typical of an instrument its age, but there's ABSOLUTELY NO WEAR on the frets and fretboard — instrument was just refretted by professional luthier. The bridge cover is missing, but Gibby parts usually fit without a needed mod job. Primp out that afro, put on the shades and crank 'er up to 10. You'll be grinning for hours! • Mahogany body
