Greco ED-Z Tremolo Installation

Greco Tremolo ED-Z & Greco EG 1976Greco ED-Z tremolo | Vintage Japan Guitar

It’s been a long time since I wanted to install a tremolo on one of my Greco EG (Les Paul) guitars manufactured by Fujigen Gakki. I first looked at solutions well known as the Bigsby B7 tremolo with a Vibramate kit because it’s not needed to drill the body of the guitar. However, the Bigsby is an expensive solution … If I had to purchase a Bigsby, a Vibramate kit, adding the shipping cost and import taxes, the final cost would have been around $ 300.00.

Another interesting solution would have been to buy a Duesenberg Les Trem II. Cheaper than a Bigsby, it is easy to install and does not require to drill the body.

However, a Greco guitar lover who knew I was looking for a tremolo sent me a Greco ED-Z model picture. So I was very interested in this one and a few weeks later, he sent me the link of an ads of this rare accessory. I did not hesitate a second and bought it at a really good price. I must thank this person without whom I could not have added this piece to my collection so quickly.

As I show you in the following photos, the installation of the Greco ED-Z tremolo is extremely easy, fast and no need to drill the body of the guitar. In short, all the Japanese technology in its splendor despite its 40 years.
