  1. Simply beautiful. That caught my eye as well. And an F-hole stamp/signature just does it for me. Have a great weekend with it. Regards, Tobias
  2. # 60 plus New Family Member

    Congratulations on those two beautiful guitars. I might grill you with some questions once you have emerged from your music room in about two weeks... Enjoy. Cheers, Tobias
  3. #0066 - An illustrated journal...

    Something about the looks of the three Gretsch-O-Trons threw me off at first. (Just an unfamiliar look to me, apart from having seen the sparkly gretschified Daytona in pictures). Now I see how balanced the guitar looks. Yep. What a great way to celebrate a birthday. Enjoy the heck out of it. Cheers, Tobias
  4. Semi-Hollows?

    I like the suggestions that Veatch and BubbaVO made. The Shark's suggestion would work as well. I can't wait to see the outcome. Cheers, Tobias
  5. Nice, I'm envious. Have you considered taking the bass clarinet out of its case and playing it again? Amplified? Maybe with a Floyd Rose installed? Cheers, Tobias
  6. Hi Everyone, Apart from the usual suspects (Miles Davis, Coltrane , etc. ), it's been this guy for the last 20 years: Louis Sclavis Cheers, Tobias
  7. Green(burst) with envy...X2!

    Just seeing the yet unfinished guitars, I can't imagine the exhilaration upon receiving one of these from Mike's hands (especially for those who get to pick them up in person). Cheers,Tobias
  8. OHD: '81 Graphic Special

    That one's stunning. Play it in good health. Cheers, Tobias
  9. Hi Zorrow, I'm used to 2mm Jazztone or 2mm Delrin picks, I think it's a combination of the thickness and the material that is responsible for the "click". I am not referring to the normal attack by the way, but to a distinct sound the 30x and 50x picks make, that i don't get when using the 20x Jazztone or 2mm Delrin picks. I'll see if I can get the other (clearer) Primetones next week when I'm back home. Have fun experimenting, everyone. Cheers, Tobias
  10. Thanks for making me aware of these, Zorrow and Steve Haynie. I ordered the 305,307,308 and 505,507,508. The 307 and 507 work best for me (bigger picks, round tip), no surprise there, as I generally use the Dunlop Jazztone 207 . So far (20 minutes of playing) I love the 3mm and 5mm thickness and the general influence on my tone. Unfortunately the accompanying click-sounds are too pronounced. Does anyone know about 3mm or 5mm picks (regular size) that don't sound so "clicky"? Any suggestions are appreciated. Regards, Tobias
  11. Hi Ting Ho Dung, Thanks for posting this. I watched this video a while ago, some remarks surprised me as well. As far as Billy Howerdel is concerned, I always liked the sounds he achieves. When I first heard "The Hollow", I finally realised that a ring modulator can be used for wonderful things. (My apologies to all the ring modulator addicts here, you know who you are.) Concerning Billy's guitar choices / repair induced changes: It just proves that we all like different things regardless of how the details should be , doesn't it? Anyway, putting gear discussions aside, A Perfect Circle and Tool are two of my favourite Rock bands. Unfortunately I've never seen either band live. Hopefully that will change soon. (I'm doing my best here to increase the internet karmic pressure on the universe,) Have a good one. ETA: I'm going to pile on with this one: Creative goodness from the part of the brain that I've been neglecting for too long. My apologies for the distraction. Cheers, Tobias

  13. Hi everyone, If I'm wrong about this, please correct my statement, but weren't the guitars built with the Wilkinson Wrap-tails built mainly in 1996 (maybe late 1995)? Anyway, I played a 1996 Artist in ( I think) 1998 and it was a fantastic guitar. I donĀ“t remember the shape of the neck, but to the best of my recollection many people on this forum really like the guitars with these bridges/from this period. That particular guitar certainly was the one that compelled me to buy a Hamer (Artist Anniversary) almost 10 years later. Cheers, Tobias
  14. Another DC Custom just headed out

    Wow, That's another stunning one that will make me go back to admire the small details on the ones posted before. What's the depth/thickness at the rim/center on those? (If those details have been posted before, my apologies for not paying attention.) These posts have taken the place of "It was a good day for..." for me. On a sidenote: I first wondered about the placement of the knobs. Now it makes perfect sense to me (with me being used to both Hamer and Gibson V/V/T/T controls). Ok, I'll shut up now and enjoy. Cheers, Tobias
  15. Is the board a little slow lately?

    Hi there, The only thing I notice (the last 3 days maybe) is that when signing in I get the message: "This connection is not secure." I just thought I'd mention it. Have a good one, everyone, and yes, drive safely. Cheers, Tobias
