Re: Strange Greco Spacey Sound

It looks like a fake model to me as the serial and tuners are not what would be on a Greco. It looks really new as well. Could it be a rare model? The serial number looks like a good attempt to make one similar to a real Greco but it is too long.....

Re: Bacchus BLS-DX ? (Quilt top BLS model)

It is hard to find the background of these high-end Bacchus LPs. Are they possibly order models? I have had some odd ones over the years that are not your typical off-the-shelf LP colours and finishes. My sample size is pretty small though. Here is a Japanese page that is offline now but the "Waybac...

Re: Tokai breezysound

Sunburst and maple neck is likely to be a TE-50. Is there any binding around the body? Perhaps a TE-70 then.

Re: I 'laughed out loud' when I saw this Greco listed on Reverb

Good post, I translated the blog entry of Takano and this information was pretty useful. My theory is that the A was used when making the DRY-Z pickups and PU-2 pickups at the same production location to easily differentiate them (nevermind the stamped baseplates of most PU-2s). What is the opposite...

No ebony board there. Below a board and MOP inlays on an EG58-100 from early 1982. Note that there is no volute on that model. The OP's guitar has a volute, no ebony board, no waffleback tuners, and no Groove pickups that would be on a 1982 EC58-100. Lots of confusion for these 1982 customs. You see...

Yes, I'm sure about that. April 1982 onwards changed. I have the catalogs, read Japanese, and owned a 1982 EC58-100.
All the custom guitars in the Mint Collection Catalog said "Super Real" on the truss rod covers.

I've got a 1986 for sale at the moment on Reverb.
It is light, and in 9/10 condition. Plays and sounds as good as the best of them IMO.

Shipping is around 14,000 yen to the UK for a guitar, then add whatever tax you have there (25%?) and you probably get close to 65,000 yen in a hurry.

They sell for around 40,000 yen in Japan for that model. MR-600 I believe. So that price seems in the right range for something imported to the UK considering shipping and taxes from Japan.

Maybe that "weight control" they do on the bodies makes them ring out all that much more. Terada makes impeccable instruments for a lot of brands, I'm not surprised you like yours so much.

From what I can find in Japanese these Greco's and the Ornetts were actually made by Asahi Wood (https://www.asahiwood.co.jp/).
I had a high end Special of this series and they are really solid guitars.
