You helped me, a total stranger, for free and not expecting to get anything back for it. You are a rare breed.I got a few questions in the old message box here from a new member (no posts anyway) about a Reverb guitar for sale. It is a Super Real but from 1979 with some non-original DRY-Z in them. I'm usually happy to help a new MLP member (at least up to now.....)
After giving him some ideas on why the guitar could be, in my opinion, an EGF-850 or EGF-1000 he was pretty sure that the logo on the headstock meant it must be an EG-500....no question.
Here is the guitar in question...https://reverb.com/item/29665182-greco-super-real-super-real-case-1979-dry-z-pair
The last message I received is below. What say you all? About the guitar that is.....
Another way to tell this is a low end guitar- no volute on the neck. 800 and above had volutes.
oh, so now you're going to pretend that you can't see the difference? That's just ego. You'd rather have people think you're right than actually be right. And the logo doesn't mean it's specifically a 500, just that it's a low end guitar. I'm not sure it's a 500, I'm just sure that it's not an 800 or above.
Here you just blatantly lied. If you'd actually checked the catalogue you would have seen that the eg800 and eg1000 look so much different than that guys guitar that it's impossible to confuse the two. The more you talk the more obvious it is that you're just making it up as you go.
I didn't link to any bolt on neck guitars. You are really working hard to be as obtuse as you can.
And yet in your first post you claimed that mop inlays are one of the ways you can tell whether it's a 500 or a 1000. Turns out you were just blowing smoke up my ass. . .Again
Wrong, wrong, and wrong. All those features can be found on low end guitars (except maybe laminated top, but there's no way to tell whether the top on that guys instrument is laminated or veneer). They are not useful identifiers.
Possibly, but I doubt it. acrylic inlays would be green on a guitar that age unless it spent virtually it's whole life in a case. The wear on the guitar show that it wasn't kept in a case. But you could be right because I'm making an educated guaess and unlike you, when I'm just guessing, I'll admit it.
You're a phony. Your claim to expertise is just a fantasy you live on the internet. You have no real expertise. You take pics from japanese guitar retailers and then claim they are your own. Your only expertise is finding japanese sites to steal pics from. You know next to nothing about the guitars. You're a total and complete fraud. Frauds love living a fantasy life as a fake expert on messageboards. I hope that guy finds a buyer for his guitar and they never figure out what it really is because he's the innocent victim in this. He's not trying to con anybody, he was conned by you.
- a little tip- you should crop out the japanese writing in the photos that you want to claim as your own.
Genuinely felt sad reading that, that you cop that kind of response.
You don’t know what people are going through in their lives so maybe there are other reasons for that, or maybe not. Either way best to just move on from it.
Thanks again for your time giving me advice.
