Guess that manufacturer

Post by Nick » August 21st, 2008, 6:05 am

This may be a game of one post. I saw this guitar on craigslist. Now without looking at the link and picture, can you guess what is the real brand name of this guitar?

Hanes Acoustic guitar - $100

It's a famous one, and it isn't the underwear maker. Here's a hint. It's a completely incorrect guess of what the logo actually spells out.

LOL, got it without looking. Enough correct letters; plus that one gets misspelled quite often, esp. the script logo where the I looks like a J. Surprised the seller didn't put "J Hanez"

It's her ex-boyfriend's guitar.
Lindsey doesn't care what it's called.
She's pissed and is selling the engagement ring too.

(Not really . . . . but it sounds good . . . well, it COULD be true)

I might write lyrics to the effect of:

Dear Ebay,
I'm sailing this here geetar
It was Jakes
But I cot him in bed
With my sister
And I want to sail
This here ring too.
I want to sail his gun but
The police done took it.

This is a good example of why the OCR systems are not easy to implement.

Here 'tis (lyrics for a little ditty)
The tune would be something like Cat Stevens' "Father and Son"

Dear Mister Craig
I'm sailing this here geetar
It used to belong to Jed
But Jed don't need it no more
Since I cot him with my sister in bed.

I also want to sail this here ring
I'm so mad I could spit
I want to sail his gun too
But a police officer done took it.

I need the money for attorney fees
And to make my bail
So if you would hurry please,
Signed: Lindsey, (in) Fairfax County Jail


OK, I'll stop

I've been playing "Guess The Manufacturer" ever since I bought that SPT acoustic off you three years ago, Nick, and I'm still none the wiser....

:D :D :D

Well you could type 'guitar' on Ebay.com and keep guessing the manufacturer.

It might be one of these though:

1. Fendar
2. Gibsun
3. Fander
4. Geebson

And you may find:

1. Startocaster
2. Less Paul

Happy guessin' :mrgreen:

Thanks, but I found this about 'Geebson' - http://www.ancestry.com/facts/Geebson-f ... ry-uk.ashx. Maybe Vic would know more...

However, Givsons are made in India and they surely and truely suck.
