  1. I ordered the EPH Tape Echo thingy, shipping notice came on Wednesday, and another shipping notice for the 4-knob BF Deluxe pedal came today.
  2. If anyone is looking for an Eternity Burst, I have 2 for sale. One Hardwired, and one PCB board.
  3. tally

    Well thats definitely a pro's workbench with that Strobe tuner and the practice amp and the all that techy stuff.
  4. I bought the hardwired Eternity Burst, and I already have a PCB Eternity Burst. One will be up for sale soon as I don't need two. Also grabbed the Tiki Drive-alot of hype around that one. We'll see if it lives up.
  5. WTB/TRADE Acoustic guitar

    Loud and Resonant=Martin D28 Bright=Taylor, but I don't know which models are that loud, compared to the Martin Ds
  6. More on V-picks, this time unbuffed!

    Well if you never lose or misplace them, and they are indestructible, why would you need more than 1?
  7. Some labels now are high quality, some are lower. I bought 2 albums from the "Bloodshot" label that were warped right out of the box. Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs and Sundazed are two labels that I've bought that sound great, but I don't think it's because of any superior materials or the thicker vinyl they use-180 or 200g. Plenty of my older albums sound amazing. I know there are different causes of surface noise, but I own plenty of older records (some were mine originally, some I've bought in second hand stores) that play very clean with little or no surface noise. BTW, that JVC turntable is sweet.
  8. FS 1976 Standard

    Ok, so arguably the biggest Hamer fan ever, who co-wrote a book on Hamers. and chose that particular guitar for the cover because it best represents the brand of which he is #1 fan, creator/keeper of the archives, daily poster to the HFC for what, 15+ years? is going to sell the best example of the Hamer brand currently in possession of mortal man. Makes sense. There must be other heirlooms in the family.
  9. Congrats Ben! The guitar looks great and I'm impressed you went with the tele pickups-looks like a great tone recipe right there!
  10. Whats the Last 5 Albums you've bought?

    Warren Haynes-Man in Motion Tower of Power-40th Anniversary CD Herbie Hancock-Imagine Project Greg Allman-Low Country Blues Jeff Beck-Rock N'Roll Party
  11. Jol re-surfaces, in Premier Guitar

    It just seems that Jol has concrete ideas for what his guitars should sound like. I know he seems to change his mind from time to time or whatever, but he also doesnt seem bothered about losing customers to other builders over a set of pickups. I don't think its all hot air either. For example, I think the SD Phat Cats sound the best in the Newports. I've heard them in 335s, Epiphone Dots, my own Warmoth tele, Les Pauls, and they range from lifeless to mediocre. They fit the Newport perfectly. I would also suspect that the DDs wouldn't sound as good as they do in the Talledega, in a Les Paul. I will also go out on a limb here and say that a $500 Gibson LP special with Lollar P90s would sound very similar to a Hamer Special with the same Lollar P90s, so why not go for something different?
  12. What's that I see in the mail room?

    I loved that Guitar with the stock pickups. Mine had a Seth in the neck and a great JB in the bridge. Everyone who played that thing commented on the tone. Then again, you cant go wrong with Rios!
  13. ZZ Top producer/engineer Terry Manning

    ZZ started in 1969, so they had quite a bit of stage experience by then. Billy Gibbons was one of Hendrix's favorite guitarists. Tres Hombres is my favorite album of theirs by far bith songwise and guitar tone wise.
