  2. Rick’s Miller guitar had the “Miller Music” graphic and a 3+3 headstock.
  3. Post Graphic Special Pics!

    A truly great guitar:
  4. This is the definitive 12-string song for me. I never really noticed, paid attention or cared about them until hearing this one. Bonus Hamer content.
  5. Yep. I assure you, Hamer wasn't anywhere close to building 500 guitars/month.. That's above most yearly outputs in CT.
  6. Di Marzio PAF correct bottom plate?

    1979 seems to be the transition year.. Braided to plastic-sheathed leads and square feet to triangular.. The slug coil poles changed between 1982/83 from beveled to flat.
  7. Always liked the original 1982 and earlier Deans.. They went to shit after that. The headstock shape didn't bother me, but tuning wasn't consistent for gigging.
  8. The OP's and Hikarate's PTs are later Dallas-era models.. The 22-fret necks and different body shapes are the indicators of that. Fret markers are Fender-sized as well. I've owned four of the Dallas-era PTs (including one that is in two of these posts). The best two I've owned (I still have a May '85) were 21-fret models and were among the best guitars I've ever owned, which is saying quite a lot. I stupidly got rid of the first great 84/85 because I was gigging on bass pretty much exclusively. I jumped when I had the chance to grab the one I have now and it was even better than my first one. May, 1985 (date in neck pocket along with builders' names) My old killer one-never popped the neck to check date. The different neck and body shape are visible in this 86. Haven't seen sunburst ones before.. When these were standardized, the Saturn came in black with maple, candy red with rosewood and gold with rosewood iirc.. I have the original flyer around somewhere.. That was from 85, so other options might have been added.
  9. Hamer Jeff Beck Model

    How about this one that came up when I looked at the JB Hamer... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hamer-USA-Custom-Talladega-Guitar/352203228067?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D48736%26meid%3D46d57bb01be143d7ba37060580e2962c%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D322865561106&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  10. Hamer in 82' ?

    Tons of Vectors, Phantoms and Blitz and Cruise Basses from 82.
  11. Show us your Shishkov in action.

    Love, love, LOVE this guitar!!
