  1. Oooops, sorry! Didn't know that, either 😉
  2. Shouldn't you change your handle then?
  3. That's why there is that „p“ in your name and not an „h“!
  4. Really fun stuff – this is the first and most profound answer: THANKS! I can find 2 guitars with the stripe in my stable: A bleached yellow 80 Special from the first year with serial # 0 2141– you may update your knowledge, as soon as I had an opportunity to picture and upload it. # 01610 should be the 1. Special reported, but I don't know any more, WHO of the HFC stated that. And a black 83 Special with a Sustainblock-Trem, # 3 9294. May be interesting to find out when the Checkerboard stopped. Paul Hamer's H-Guitars still use that decor element at the inside edge of their soundhole rosette: https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/27377-holy-grail-guitar-show-18---h-guitars-h-cutaway-demo
  5. True beauty with a little flaw – too bad, you're on the wrong side of the pond! GLWTS, Jochen

    I'm glad to read this. And being well educated, first hand. And feeling comfortable again. In Germany 2 8s can have different meanings, and one interpretaion is really disgusting: Eighty Aid is the claim of a service clinic for Cannondale's suspension fork like the Fatty, Lefty etc. Eighty Aid roots from 4x22, which is the amount of balls (sic!) in the 4 ballbearings, that make C'dales construction work and being serviceable. So far, so good! Mountainbiking is good for your health. And brain. But now the BAD: 88 also is used by (German, but also international) Nazis as a hidden salutation, referring twice to „H“ , the 8th letter in the alphabet. This is meant to mean „Heil Hitler". Which is at least disgusting. Fck Nzis! Again something new learnt! And THIS down there is a cap from the Headshok clinic!
  7. It wasn't me, Monte! I swear! I did the same as you: some questions and nice words. Hat halt nicht sollen sein...
  8. Think, he might have offered 350.
  9. Anyone knows, what were 1. the earliest and 2. the latest known „Racing stripe“ on a Hamer peghead ?
  10. ....and this almost-Newport, a damn close relative that's making me weak, too, on Reverb, ith discounted price, too (no aff. as usual): https://reverb.com/item/11319444-hamer-monaco-iii-2005-transparent-red-with-case
  11. Could you live with a different one? There's another one on the bay – and at what a price! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hamer-Bigsby-Semi-Hollow-6-string-Electric-Guitar-USA/401521225448?_trkparms=aid%3D777003%26algo%3DDISCL.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D43628%26meid%3De2c3beb5865c4b5e97c567cf6ed1295c%26pid%3D100013%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D9%26sd%3D173256957617%26itm%3D401521225448&_trksid=p2047675.c100013.m1986
  12. This is the one, the other Jochen's talking about: (Our posts have been overlapping. No wonder: same name, same thoughts) Here's another German butchered Special, a 81, obviously. I don't know, what makes some Germans cut out Hamer Specials, especially in the northern regions of our country. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hamer-special-usa-double-cutaway-mit-case-in-honey/837468619-74-420 My own Hamers are all healthy, I swear! No affiliation – I live in the south... Jochen
  13. > At least, it wasn't Kahlered ;-) Congrats, RepoMan! How did that story go? What I would like to know: How does a 12-string Std. SOUND – any recordings of that axe around?
  14. Then me wants to throw in a couple of numbers ;-)
  15. Regarding this ^ problem (and any other exchange rate/transfers to other currencies within EU) have a look at http://www.transferwise.com Their xchange rates and transfer fees are a lot better than pp's. Has worked out fine everytime I have used that service (more than int'l 10 tranfers so far).
