  1. Anybody got an extra set of diplomatic license plates?
  2. Bit late to the party on this one, Bubs, but congrats on the sale. Those James Burton teles are the shizz. I couldn't help but notice the interesting B/E string tree placement. Better tuning stability than the traditional way?
  3. Damn, that's nice, Greg. Congrats to The Shark!
  4. 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.
  5. Market value for a used Ultimate?

    Cheers, Bubs. Can't wait to see what Mike's got cookin' in the kitchen for you!
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. All I can say, is it's about the nicest Hamer I've ever seen. Jaw hits the floor....
  9. 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!
  10. I've got a few and might even be tempted to sell one or two.... or three.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
