Greco Super Power eg 500 Black Beauty 1980

Post by Mitch Malloy » Mon Mar 10, 2008 3:36 pm

Hey there I'm new here and thought you might know the answers to my questions. I have an EG 500 Super Power Black Beauty Custom from 1980 serial is K804600. Was wondering about this guitar. What pickups are in it and is it mahogany and maple (sounds like Maple top) and is the neck Mahogany? I like it very much although it needs a fret leveling and a set up. It's fretting out a little but it's pretty wicked other than that. Thanks,

Mitch

Hi Mitch. If you have any pictures taken of the guitar please post them as the other members will be able to help you out more. If you don't already have one, start up an account at http://www.photobucket.com and you can copy and paste the IMG code into your response.

Thanks I'll do that. I don't have any good pictues yet but I'll take some. I changed the knobs to the clear speed knobs. I like the way they look.

The Super Power EG500 specs are similar to the Super Real EG500 specs at http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=10431

Here's a pic of my 1979 EG500 Super Real with U-1000 pickups

Should be the same on Super Power EG500 I think.
