  1. I had a matsushita 12ax7 at one time and I can vouch that they are good tubes that look very similar to a mullard.
  2. Oops, broke my pickup

    Yeah if the the guitar was 2008 it definitely sounds like these were replacement pickups. They probably should have been seymour duncans and they are easily identifiable. Just find the pickups that sound great in that guitar.
  3. I've seen that Newport Pro custom up on the international eBay for a heck of a long time at that exorbitant price
  4. Oops, broke my pickup

    If you like the way it sounds now you may want to get the pickup fixed. New pickups will change it's tone.
  5. Thanks I can never really photograph just how stunning it really is. The color is more black cherry. I had Marty Bell do the refinishing and I can't say too much about how great his work is. It looked brand-new when I got it back. Everyone that sees it seems pretty stunned by it. And it totally has the 3D flame movement going also.
  6. And I know its a travesty but here's one I stripped myself and had refinished. I loved the guitar. It's the most resonant solidbody I own, but the longer I owned it the more I hated the green. A student borrowed it from me and chipped the finish badly so I finally decided to make make it a color I like.
  7. Wow lots of beautiful guitars. Here's mine! The second one is from Django's purge
  8. Donner I have a jazzburst Newport just like that one and it is such a simple yet gorgeous instrument. Love it! Way better than natural.
  9. Hey guys, a friend of mine tried out my 2008 Newport pro and really liked it and wants to get one. So we were looking on Reverb and found one made in 1999. She likes the size of the 2008 neck. So we are wondering if there was much change in the neck size on Newports from 1999-2008? Thanks
  10. The sustain listen to it. I can' t hear it. Well you would though if it were playing.
  11. I had one for awhile and it really shone when I put a clean boost in front of it, used the volume knob on the guitar to clean it up and used a tube screamer for solos. I would like to get another.
  12. You gotta check this out! Another unbelievable Hamer! http://vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=112586207909&t=1508868069000&tid=10&category=118985&seller=tuneyoursound&excSoj=1&excTrk=1&lsite=0&ittenable=false&domain=ebay.com&descgauge=1&cspheader=1&oneClk=1&secureDesc=0 https://www.ebay.com/itm/112586207909?ul_noapp=true
  13. I went for the red zendrive for $50. Just ridiculously cheap. Almost went for the tape delay.
  14. Anyone else have a maple Newport they want to sell?
  15. I was just looking at that and it looks like its sold out. Did you get one?
