Is anybody familiar with the neck joint that Carlo Greco used on his flat top acoustics?
I can post up a couple pictures tomorrow too.
I haven't been able to find the gap between the neck and block, as in a dovetail joint.
The headblock is also extra thick, I'm wondering if it's a mortise and tenon.
Thanks for any help.
we'll also need a birth certificate and x-rays to even "remotely"be able to help....I do like the x-ray idea though...can a heating blanket be converted to use as an x-ray device ?
I was hoping somebody here had done a reset on one of Carlo's flattops before.
I wish he had a website, or any contact info out there.
Try this. http://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/carlo-greco (2005). If he's not around, maybe the shop will know. He was a major figure in Guild guitars before they left the East coast according to several of the bio's turned up on Google.
Also, see: http://theunofficialmartinguitarforum.yuku.com/topic/119405. Greco apparently retired from building in 2011 at 85. There's even a contact listed with a Greco web site: http://carlogrecoguitars.com/
There's a Guild book that mentions Greco. books.google.com/books?isbn=0634009664.
Google is your friend. Search "Carlo Greco guitar maker."
