  1. Damn, that's nice, Greg. Congrats to The Shark!
  2. Hey, Dave - I've got a really nice '96 USA GATSSO (carved top Studio). '59 burst, w/ wrap tailpiece. All original w/ OHSC. Feel free to message me if you're interested.
  3. Market value for a used Ultimate?

    Cheers, Bubs. Can't wait to see what Mike's got cookin' in the kitchen for you!
  4. Market value for a used Ultimate?

    Thanks, brother. And right back at you! I hear there's a lady named "Irma" who's got a bone to pick with the coast. Stay safe, my friend!
  5. Market value for a used Ultimate?

    +1 to all of the comments above along with my ongoing gratitude to both Bubs and Shark. I consider myself beyond fortunate to own one of these magnificent guitars and as tempting as it might be to consider offers, #20 will remain a permanent "resident" here in the Wintersphere. Some of Mike's designs posted to FB this year have been blowing my mind and it's only a matter of time before I'm in a position again to pick up the phone and have the conversation I've been dreaming of having.
  6. All I can say, is it's about the nicest Hamer I've ever seen. Jaw hits the floor....
  7. That "Special Special" is a real beauty. They BOTH are but I absolutely love the look of the neck without the fret markers. If you are OK shipping to Canada msg. me. If not, no worries whatsoever and GLWTS!
  8. I've got a few and might even be tempted to sell one or two.... or three.
  9. I recently got turned-on to the Orville / Orville by Gibson LP's. They really are fantastic guitars -- great tone and extremely well made. I liked them so much that I sold a couple of my Gibson Standards. For me, I absolutely love the sound and playability of the Hamer Studio models. I can pretty much nail all my fav LP tones on any one of them but I really do love the feel of playing a LP. So... the simple answer for me was, they're both great... so get both.
  10. Beware of the GAS

    Had a bad case of G.A.S. a few months back that resulted in some pretty nice additions to the "family". Putting plans together to order a Shishkov so for me, the first step is deciding which guitars will stay and which ones I'll be letting go of. A couple of my partscasters and two Hamer Studio's are now looking for new homes. Will post some nice pics and deets in the For Sale / Wanted section shortly.

  12. Annnnnnnnnnnnnd just like that, this one is SOLD!! Thanks to everyone for expressing interest.
  13. Yeah, I thought that asking price would raise a few eyebrows... Wowzers.
  14. https://reverb.com/item/4878526-used-1981-hamer-standard-electric-guitar-refin-sunburst Saw this one posted on Reverb a few minutes ago. Looks to be a nice refin. Not mine, though... Only posting because I'm an unabashed enabler.
