Probably my favourite of the lot. Really good neck and quite lightweight. The pickups are great aswell although I can't compare them to OG Wide Rangers.

Still needs some tweaking but good so far. Tempted to grab another cause they're so cheap.

I was lucky enough to have a four-new-guitar 2020: 1964 Hofner Galaxie 176, 1990 MIK Casino, 1972 Greco Tele, 1965 Yairi classical.

I like the Kills vibes of that Hofner. Jamie Hince said in the gear rundown video those are the cleanest pickups he ever played

70s odball Greco tele is awesome too. I wonder how heavy they are

The Greco feels just like any other Tele weight wise, I have a few 70s Grecos and some early Fender Japans and they are more or less the same. And yeah I heard about the Kills connection on the Hofner, but I think these pickups are slightly different? If anything they are a bit shrill, I need to look at the wiring and see what's what ...
Thanks for the feedback tho! I miss my guitars, I had to pack them all to move house and at the moment I only have the Casino (yeah, poor me).

Yeah I was lucky enough to have a job unaffected by COVID, and wasn't able to take my kids on holiday or do the usual leisure activities, so I put my entertainment budget into guitars ...

Didn't realise you had one of these as well. How are you finding it? I'm still in the honeymoon phase I think.

Good form Rob.

You need to sort the paint on that skirting board though.
