    This ragtag bunch all ended up in the same place at the Northeast Guitar Expo today. Teleman Dave didn’t make the shot but he was there too. 😊 (L-R: Darc, Stonge, Thundernotes, and the incomparable Mr Shishkov)

    A Long & McQuade had a nicely framed 8-1/2x11 photo of this guy hung on the wall front and center at the designated Kramer guitar display space.

    A lot of discussion about vintage juniors lately. Since I picked up the 63 Epi Jr, I'm letting this one go. $2,400 shipped/paypal'd. Let's drop this to an even $2,000. Sold Player condition, but solid, 1965 SG Junior. No breaks, but plenty of honest playwear and finish checking. Tuners were replaced at some point by a previous owner. The nut does not look original to me. Pickup and electronics are original and untouched. A note on dating this guitar - I believe this guitar is a 1964 model based on both pots clearly showing a year of 1964. However, I can't see the last two numbers on the pot codes without removing the solder. They could be a late 64s. The serial number indicates an early 1965 manufacture date, but SNs of the era are not completely accurate all the time. So it's likely a very late 64 or very early 1965 model. Regardless of its actual year of manufacture, its a cool vintage player that's approximately 54 years old with all that you would expect, nice neck, old wood, original electronics and great playability. The guitar plays great with low action and a nice size neck. The neck measurements are (in inches): Width - 1 11/16 at the nut, 2 1/16 at the 12th fret Depth - 13/16 at the nut, 1 at the 12th fret. Guitar weighs 6 pounds on the nose. Check out the pictures, there are spots on the neck and the back of the body that are worn through the finish. There's plenty of finish checking all over. I do not have the original chipboard case, but will include a functional Gibson USA case. It's worn, the shroud is gone and the handle wrap is separating. But all latches and hinges are solid and work. Check out more pictures on my reverb listing: https://reverb.com/item/11283637-1964-cherry-sg-junior?publish_confirmation=true

    Here’s a snap of mine / the logo does drop the curly bit of the R over the bevel - hope that helps. BTW I prefer stadium logos too!

    Damn, man. If not for the scalloped frets, I'd take it off your hands. GLWTS

    I have 55090s on my '55 LP Junior and my '76 LP "Standard Deluxe." The jumbo height but narrower width fools your fingertips in that you can feel a little more airspace between the higher frets. It gives a little more dig room for bending and vibrato, and makes the transition between 25.5 and 24.75 scale instruments a tad easier - for me at least.

    Selling another USA Hamer Standard Custom in Black Transparent. This was a custom order by Willcutt's Guitars. This is 1 of 5 made and the only one in black transparent. I am the second owner. Black transparent finish on a wide flame maple top, chambered body. Weighs 8 lbs., 5.2 ounces. 10 partial Victory inlays on an ebony fretboard. Bound headstock and inlaid logo. '59 style neck profile: 1st fret - .854", 12th fret - .906" Three Lollar Firebird Pickups with factory custom wiring. It has a master volume, middle pickup volume and a ToneStyler tone pot. The middle pickup is wired to the middle knob and can be added in or turned completely off to allow 6 different pickup combinations. The ToneStyler is a 16-position Tone/EQ control. Chrome hardware, with factory TonePros locking bridge, tailpiece and Schaller Tuners. It has a few small impressions on the bottom lower left horn as pictured. These are very hard to photograph. Nothing breaking the finish, just impressions. Otherwise great condition. COA and original hardshell case included. $2780 shipped & PayPal'd. No trades. USA shipping only.

    Interestingly, I have seen one other black Duotone P90. Michelle Malone from Atlanta plays one. And to bring it all full circle, she sang backup vocals on Straight to Hell on drivin n cryin’s Mystery Road album.

    I had a seafoam green 1988 Chaparral (standard) that had the smaller Hamer logo too. It's certainly not the norm, but over the years of watching for sale threads I have seen a handful of other 1988's with the smaller "non-stadium" logo. The pictures seem to show a dead center positioned rear strap button implying a pre-1990/1991-ish body (vs. the offset rear button found on 1990/1991 on up Californians) which would be in line with the serial number stamped into the back of the headstock, but as cmatthes already pointed out the shielding paint definitely does look like the copper colored stuff Hamer sprayed in the control cavities of mid-1994 on up models.

    His name is pAnZy, and will forever be so. If you wish to address his legacy, this is the only acceptable summons. Although I appreciate the acknowledgement of our old-school almost-20-years history of shared knowledge and levity, I think we need to be fresh in our acceptance of a kindler, gentler (more subtly snarky) message board. And btw, wtf does kthxbai mean, as you move weekly towards shaking down Ted for establishment of an HFC Wiki?

    Damn, that looks great! Wish I had the cash now..... Can't imagine it'd be difficult for you to sell.

    > If you didn’t slap a locking trem and zebra stripes on your product, you were doomed The part that I find ironic is that there is nothing wrong with selling trems and zebra stripes and "vintage-style" guitars at the same time. A diverse offering is always a good way to help ride out swings in demand.

    "It’s just the mad rush to appear alt by brandishing a cheapo axe that I question." How is that worse than designing a $20,000 guitar with a fucking Charlie Christian pickup?
