  1. Newport Pro Refret Cost?

    Sometimes nothin's easy. I bought a very nice 2000 Newport Pro on Reverb for a good price. The described "slight fret ware" turned out to be significant - frets 2 through 12 are significantly flattened, and frets 5 through 9 are shockingly dished under the G string (someone must be selling wound Gs coated in diamond dust). It's beyond leveling and recrowning, unless I want really flat frets, and especially if I want to preserve the fret pips in the neck binding. So my question is: about how much will a refret by a good luthier cost?
  2. Oh my Korina goodness. Love the tort binding on these. Between this and the Elliott Easton Gretsch, I'm really wishing I had stuck with law school Serial looks missing, or very faint. Maybe it's just photoshop masked. https://reverb.com/item/5892984-hamer-koriina-newport-2005-vintage-natural
  3. No affiliation... The seller doesn't know quite what it is, or how to read Hamer serial numbers, but the guitar itself looks in fine shape. I'd guess it was bought it new in 2008. ttps://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/brunswick-east/guitars-amps/rare-semi-hollowbody/1143853026
  4. Another nice Hamer getting the Rodney Dangerfield treatment from GC. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Hamer/NewPort-Hollow-Body-Electric-Guitar.gc
  5. Winter holidays coming to an end, I'm keen to provide the 2nd draft of the Newport Punk stuff that's leading my Soundcloud profile for a while. Somehow I can't find the old post. The rhythm guitar is my Newport with series reverse wired pickups in various shades. The core rhythm came up in a evening jam and I thought to record it to see how it sounds. In a 2nd step the scratching had been added to point out the coin pick I'm using. Drummica had a punk category drum pattern that fit quite well. The first bass line was just a quick note. For the 2nd draft, I tried to put some song structure underneath and developed it further. The initial bass line is quite mechanic or robotic. It sounds quite monotone over the song length. However, I had not come around it yet. At some point I might add some breakup parts to it. What I find really difficult is drum programming. Controlling the levels of the various instruments is a mass. Levels are constantly running out of control or otherwise loose dynamic. What's the trick? Since it had started of with a simple rhythm, I have no idea where the song is taking me yet.
