1990 Greco APB-1000 Lucite Bass Dan Armstrong Style (MIJ)

Without a doubt one of the coolest models in the Greco catalog, the APB-1000 is Greco Japan's take on the famous Ampeg Lucite Bass designed by Dan Armstrong in the late 60s. Very hard to tell apart from the original, these are spec'd out to be very similar to their Ampeg counterparts with a 24 fret super fast neck, laminated wooden pickguard (yes, real wood!) and even the quirky headstock design and truss rod cover. Differing from the original, the APB-1000 is loaded with a red hot twin blade humbucker with coil split capability, as well as a fully intonatable and adjustable 4 saddle bridge in favour of the sliver of wood found on the Ampegs.

This one is in really great condition for it's age, everything is original apart from a replacement strap pin on the top horn and the missing thumb rest. Almost no fret wear on this one and the acrylic body is in great shape. Freshly setup with 45-100s, the neck is nice and straight, intonation is perfect and the bass plays and sounds amazing.
