  1. A little something from The MusicZoo for your Sunday pleasure. https://www.themusiczoo.com/blogs/news/out-of-the-case-vintage-hamer-photo-gallery?utm_source=The+Music+Zoo+Newsletter&utm_campaign=54772d8ca0-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_05_17&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_63363c100e-54772d8ca0-263201009&goal=0_63363c100e-54772d8ca0-263201009&mc_cid=54772d8ca0&mc_eid=e99684c3f6
  2. Been a while. Did you find a case? There is 1 posted on Reverb today. https://reverb.com/item/12256418-hamer-flying-v-guitar-case
  3. And I'm an idiot for not jumping on it! Great guitar at a great price! If I only had a little more room. And a bit more money. GLWTS
  4. Little bigger than your purse but a boomer non-the-less. https://www.ebay.com/itm/132617189361?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649 Not mine.
  5. I don't even know where to start. Having lived most of my life in Alaska I am used to paying WAY more than the average American who lives in the fortunate 48 where "Free Shipping" is provided from Bangor Maine to San Diego with a smile. But Seattle to Anchorage is triple costs of the weight of the package! I try not to complain because I know that, all things considered, I like where I live. But I'm pretty sure that shipping costs to Alaska by the 3 biggies has more than quadrupled in the last 4 years! 50 to 75 shipping is now $150+. BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!!! And not much since in looking for help as our 3 politicos in D.C. all receive donations from UPS/FEDX! I won't go on and on with my shipping stories. But currently I can get guitars and amps shipped cheaper from Europe and Asia than I can from California or Washington. Unless I'm dealing with a large company that gets huge discounts on shipping costs do to volume. I understand giving large customers a discount but I'm not sure that 2/3 off is a discount for the big guy or a rape of the small guy. To finish my whining I'll relate my most recent shipping event. Yesterday I wrote to a member here that I wouldn't be able to buy an amplifier he has for sale. Amp is mint. Better than a new model that is now made in Asia. Price was more than fair. But the shipping would have been close to $300! Half the cost of the amp! I'm too bull headed for that. And if I bought a new model from American Music Supply they would ship it to me from the East coast for $40.00 extra! That sucks! Peace on ya. D
  6. @Bubs_42. Sorry. I never meant to queer your sale. I'm sure those are fine pickups. Every review I have read of them says so. I made that remark pre-meds on Monday and mostly was commenting on the fact that neither of us were able to find a place to put them. I had them for a couple of years and a half dozen Telecasters went by but I never found one to put them in. That was about the same time that I started using 3 pickups in Teles and that setup just never seemed to fit in. Never even tried them! So my Monday remark was totally out of line and I should of kept my damn keyboard shut. Sorry.
  7. Just goes to show that you can't believe everything you read on The Internet. :)
  8. For those of you who like the Blues; Not mine, but I wish it could be. https://reverb.com/item/11500226-hamer-usa-studio-transparent-blue-burst-2005#policies-tab
  9. Bubs, I have the DH set I bought from you. New in the box IIRC. Let me know if you want them back.
  10. Wow! NO. Double Wow! That is a different guitar! Here's a pick of the one that I didn't buy last week. Listed on Saturday, I think, sold on Tuesday. Same $1650 price but not the same guitar.
  11. A week ago I would have said "Wow! What a great Hamer! Awesome price! Somebody here should jump on this QUICK!" BUT...I'm pretty sure that was last weekend and that the guitar sold on Tuesday. And that I was the dumbass that didn't buy it. So I'm guessing this is a reminder to us all that today is April 1.

    I too have been a big fan of the '73 movie so I'm not sure I will like the new version. I'll record it and give it a run, but the last couple of live, made 4 TV plays have been pretty underwhelming for me. So I'm guessing this one will be the same. So far, the commercials I've seen, show all the actors in street clothes. So that may be more like a bunch of folks sitting around reading lines than a play. The good news is that Starz is playing the original movie tonight on RetroPlex. So I can record that and watch it on Sunday.
  13. I think the 3 Monkeys looks to be a great amp and the price is very good. But I'm kinda on the fence. As much as I like the 3M, I feel like I need to wait and see what the East looks like and how much you want for it before I make up my mind.

    Nice score! I bought 1 in ginger burst in December. Very happy with it. And CME prices have been very friendly.
