  1. Trade is complete ☺️ (blue archtop will stay by me. Sorry Daniel..) 79 Sunburst sold and the Special is my new favourite .. perhaps somebody (Steve) will know...
  2. maybe you´ll prefer this one: 1993 Archtop blue limited incl. original blue case...
  3. o.k.: I think about an other early Special. For this one of my beauties have to go ☹️ So: maybe, perhaps ... I´ll sell my 79 Sunburst. The guitar is near mint (only one little nick on the top). I´ve buyed from original owner. Comes with original case (in great condition..) Guitar is registered (Cites in Germany) (guitar looks a little darker in reality) Offers? (think about 1.699,-€ ?)
  4. yes, on market for some weeks. Price now seems "fair" i.m.o. :-)
  5. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hamer-usa-centaura/912999778-74-3422 not mine, no aff...
  6. I´ve contact the seller. I ask for better pictures and description (neck brake! condition frets) Also I want to know if the neck was "tread" with oil (would/should be a problem if you like to put on some new paint ...). unfortunatley no answer. It could be a "cool" project. But i.m.o. : need more information to calculate what´s possible...

    USA Centaura info needed.

    Last october I decied to sell my Centaura. (all original, Papers, OHC) Time jump.. A few weeks ago I decided that I "realy need" some guitar with Single coils again. Something like a "strat"... I look on the market: for the money I ´ve got for the Centaura I have the choice between China and perhaps a Mexico Fender.. But I was lucky: I´ve contact the buyer of my Centaura and could get it back for the little money I ´ve selled for... Now she´s "back home" :-) (o.K.: FR isn´t my favourite and Centaura isn´t a "classic" strat; but for the money a great guitar! )

    Hamer Golden Era?

    I think it will depend what your personly preferences are. quality of the guitars still was great (i.m.o) I am a child of the early 80´s and these are my "golden" Hamers. Hamer was a respected company in Germany this time. They lost market later ( I personally don´t like the late 80´s. FRose and Stratmonster.. ) Also I like the 90´s (duotone, eclipse, vanguard..) and of course the Artist series... ;-) something like back to the roots...
  9. for me definitely Ibanez Artist. specially the early 80´s Semi (Stagemaster etc..) I´ve had a couple of them (AM 66,67, 100...) but they have to leave me to make place (and money) for Hamer :-) Only one stayed: my dream of the early years an AM 205
  10. Two out of my drawer: https://www.ebay.de/itm/173327680729?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 https://www.ebay.de/itm/173327680160?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

    What attenuators do you like?

    I only have used an old Weber Mini Mass (50 Watt version) for all my amps. (current Marshall 1974x) It works, but you the sound lose some dynamic i.m.o But: protect your ears and no conflict with the neighbors :-)

    Historic 4 digit restore.

    How cruel the world of hard rock could be to their seniors :-) I am looking forward to a great rebirth!
  13. It takes nearly half a year to finish this project. The orignal bridge PU (I´ve found in the case) was rewound by David Barfuss. Also I buyed a black and a white DiMarzio PAF from the early 80´s. David make a correct Zebra out of them for me :-) 3 bridges did not worked any more. I could buy some new from Kim Keller (the old one are fixed and in drawer for later projects...) Poti knobs and toggle also was changed. (Perhaps gold would be the original colour but I like the black ones... With some "original" screws it now is ready for some blues again :-)
  14. sold on ebay about a year ago for under 750,- ... ☺️ I was interested in, but fretboard was/is realy bad! Need refret and it was not safe that fretboard could be repaired (some deep "holes" inside the wood) over all: an expensive "project" Jochen
  15. Hi, i´ve owned one a couple of years ago. Contact to Frank Untermeyr tell, that they not was made for Prosound.. : „The guitar is a two coil Sunburst completed on May 20, 1981. It never was a real model. We built about 20 of them for a music store in Bielefeld I think. Then we were never paid so we sold them to a few different stores, including a few in the United States.“ Story here: https://www.guitarmaniacs.de/html/users/jochenp/jochenp-gitarre-hamer8.shtml The guitar later (2006) was sell to Peter...
