  1. That's a REALLY awesome looking guitar! GLWTS BLACK IS BAD!

    1980 Special Crowned and Bound

    Great looking guitar! the early "Sunbursts" were Hamers first production guitar and one of the best models they made...............some would say the best. That guitar was worth going through a lot to get it......................... and your lucky to have it.

    Detecting Headstock Break???? How to know

    Good News! NO breaks! or repairs found any where on the guitar!.......................and he is trying to work out a fair deal for himself and the seller so he REALLY wants it now................not that he didn't before.Very much like this one only a year earlier with more checking .

    Detecting Headstock Break???? How to know

    It's doing all of the above Jeff, has the old tuners that still work well................PUP screams! Play me more! The paint finish though is really checked.............it spent all its time here in Minnesota being played out so that is a given, everything else is straight.................so what "WORK" was done?................who knows right now, maybe never, the man that owned the guitar has long since left the planet so he can't ask him.

    Detecting Headstock Break???? How to know

    I suggested that to him also, thank you.................................but on very old finishes/repairs...............were talking a 50s era guitar here that does not always reveal that the guitar had been refinished or repaired if it was.......................he said he is going to try that though......................wait and see.
  9. Well I have a buddy looking at buying a old Gibson guitar from a guy.It's a expensive [NOW] old Gibson that was owned by the sellers father.................very cool guitar................but................ the seller remembers his dad had some "Work" done on the guitar long,long ago but is not sure just what that was. The guitar has had a refret quite a while back but the frets are still in good shape. The guitar is painted so..............how to check for a headstock break on such a old guitar when you have a opaque painted guitar? Everything looks "Right" on the guitar and it's checked all over the body and neck. Sounds great and looks great per the potential new buyer.Hmmmmm

    New acquisition: 2 Scepter

    Finding one much less 2 of those in decent playing condition IS a real score. Congrats! Very Cool !
  11. WOW! That IS a real beauty! Natural finished "SUNBURSTS" from this era don't turn up often from what I have seen on my years on here. Its in really nice condition and it is "Bound and Crowned"...................don't know that exact rarity factor as far as the finish and it being B&C'd but I'll stick my neck out and guess not many were made like this one. Very Cool guitar! Some lucky new owner is going to love this one! It should not be for sale long before that happens.
  12. Lavonne's in Savage here in Minnesota had a Hamer Studio I tried out but it was not a wrapper like this one,and while the top was very nice this one is certainly better. I passed on it to get the 99 Gibby Goldtop Classic with no regrets, If this guitar would have been the one for sale I might have considered it more.Very cool guitar, not surprised it sold so quickly.
  13. Dave does get some really great looking Hamers in his shop................great price as well {IMHO} for such a beautiful and high quality guitar.
