grabe adik sa LP! di ako nagtataka kasi kabanda ko strat guy pero nung marinig yung greco gusto na rin bumili :D

si dan magbebenta daw ng 1980 white custom tingin ko 1990 din yun parang kay 420 wala namang super real na egc. di pa yata nya nakunan ng pics. unahan na lang hehehe.

if ever na benta ko ulit greco ko baka at the price na ininvest ko (cash out + loss sa napilitang ibentang gamit). pag di nabenta ibig sabihin akin talaga yung eg700 :-)

eg700 and above models have killer tones! ask mo pics ng ilalim ng pups, serial at headstock. check kung chambered or pancaked top. best kung all stock makukuha mo. magkano offer? year?

i beg to disagree...

you still gotta, gotta test the guitar for yourself.

I used to gig and practice with a friend's super real one thousand...the guitar is just dead.

PUs were changed...it was still dead.

yups very true :-)

after you have verified the specs you have to test the guitar (I didn't test mine coz I trusted the demo soundclip and the previous owner was less than a kilometer away).

the reason i am after the specs if for collectabillity, if you intend to pass it on to your baby. after all you're buying a near vintage guitar so you might as well get one with a good resale value in addition to a good tone. like anybody can buy a good modern pup but it would be a challenge finding a replacement original pup. if you don't like the stock pup you can buy a new one but keep the original. dings and scratches are not as important -- it's an old guitar so expect it.

i agree bro... i used to own around 7 guitars, sold 6 of them and left my stratocaster. you really can never tell unless you try the guitar personally. Most newbies learn this the hard way... buying something expensive doesn't always mean buying a good sounding guitar... not an issue for collectors since they won't care if it sounds good.... but.... most of vintage guitars do...

as they always say, try the guitar first before buying it... if it's brand new, compare it with the rest.... buti pa people in the US, they can try lots of guitars...

whats the difference between chambered and pancake? :-D i know chambered is lighter and all but not too sure about pancakes? :-D

i agree with y'all that you need to test the guitar first, i too learned it the hard way, i bought and sold majority of my guitars for the reliable ones. hirap din ng gnun ang gastos eh hehehe

afaik, chambered yung may mga hollow parts sa body para gumaang pero medyo nagkakaron ng ibang characteristic ang sound kasi parang acoustic.

ang pancake technique yun na may manipis na wood ipepress para mag curve parang pancake saka ididikit sa ibabaw so ang result may parts sya na medyo hollow pero not as much as a chambered.

ang solid walang hollow parts except dun sa pots, pups at switch--solid wood sya.

upping this thread, i saw one '77 Greco custom LP na 2-way switching, i know it's authentic Greco but im not sure if this will held up to abuse. andami nang bangas, mejo cracked na yung paint, may dings and everything, bent na yung neck, hay. maayos pa kaya tong mga to? balak ko kasing kunin taz spray-an ko ng clear lacquer para ma-preserve yung pagkaluma nya. nanghihinayang ako kasi yung greco e patay na yung may-ari tapos yung gumagamit ngayon eh hiskul lang  at kung saan san lang pinapatong, walang ingat. sayang naman. gusto ko i-rescue hehe.

mabigat sya, pero nung buksan ko yung control cavity mukang pancake nga. ok pa kaya siyang kunin?

dalhin mo sa luthier para matsek kung kaya pa makorek yung bent neck. don't mind yung paint cracks and dings yun sa kin meron rin--it won't affect the sound.
