  1. Would be fun to try but no volume/tone knobs would drive me crazy.
  2. Yeah, St. Vincent is very cool! Don't enjoy every tune, but they're all interesting. And I agree, she's got that showmanship that meshes well with D. Byrne.
  3. I like it. Except for the cover. I've heard some of the high end Washburns can be good? It kind of brings up an interesting point about Hamer though -their consistency. Sure some like the earlier ones, some like the later ones. But they're all quality guitars. It's not like a lot of other companies where you have to pick through a bunch or make sure it's from a certain era. Pretty much any USA Hamer is gonna be solid in my experience.

    NGD: Ibanez AFC95

    Wow! Very classy looking! Perfect colour for that style of guitar.

    Let's see those home studios

    Does the komplete kontrol keyboard come with the sound library? If so, you're going to love it! So fun to play and experiment with. The strings sounds alone knock me out, plus hammond, rhodes, horns. Just awesome.
  6. I kind of like it! Still would rather have a normal Sunburst, but it's not too bad.
  7. Plus you can't go wrong with Hamer quality!! Never played a Daytona, but had a T-51 that was great. All the Hamers I've played have been great. If you compare what $850 will get you in Fender-Land...seems like a great deal to me!

    Best Cab to use with Axe-Fx II?

    That's where I personally could take advantage of the features of the AXE FX (or other modellers). For recording. But then you get into the software vs. hardware argument. Lot's of good virtual stuff amps/effects out there. Which is a whole other argument. ha!
  9. would love to have that one!

    Pedals - Neverendingrabbitthole

    Oops! Missed this reply before I posted about the OCD. Stick with what works and be happy. Wish I could follow my own advice.😂 At least I figured out my favorite guitars, Hamer Studios all the way. (without jumping to a price range way too high for me at the moment ).

    Pedals - Neverendingrabbitthole

    Fulltone OCD is awesome, and you can get it for roughly $100 or so used. Quite popular, so even though they're great, there's enough around that they show up for sale regularly. Why did I sell mine again?
  13. Super nice! I haven't seen that many in Tobacco, Sunburst seems much more common. Good luck hunting it down.

    Pedals - Neverendingrabbitthole

    I just bought a Xotic SL drive, really loving it. I've bought/sold/bought again a few pedals. Lately I'm thinking of trading away a Fulltone Distortion Pro, I love it with single coils, but not with humbuckers which I'm mostly playing now. I don't want to end up having to buy it for a third time though if I change my mind again later! 😋😂
