Do these qualify?
I know Rickenbacker isn't happy about them!

A little something I whipped up in the basement.

80's Greco mint collection. Custom shop aside I'd rather have this than 99% of new Gibsons I've tried, not bad for a LP that cost around the same price as an Epiphone.

Here's an Audition Hollowbody (or is it a Teisco EP9T?) I've finally got up and running. Not a keeper for me, but the (microphonic) pickups have a lovely throaty tone. Plays better than expected too.

I had this Strat a couple of years ago...
I'm not sure what brand it was, but my best guess is Greco. Mid-1970's...
Weighed in at around 9 pounds, which was the number 1 reason why I sold it... I kinda regret it though, it was awesome!

Image

This one was also in years ago...
I'm thinking Greco again, also mid-70's...
Also hella heavy but not as great sounding as the other one...

I just really, really like gear...

I guess these belong here too - from lawsuit to legit in a few short years:
76 Greco Spacey Sounds, 77 Greco Super Sounds, 83 Squier Tele Custom, 84 Ibanez Roadstar II, 85-6 Fender Jazzmaster (all Fujigen):
