    Shipping To A USPS PO Box

    If sent signature required the buyer will have to sign before picking the guitar up at the counter, which in my experience also requires photo ID.

    Shipping To A USPS PO Box

    I really appreciate that fellas!! A lot to think about. He wants to pay Paypal Gift which is his choice and that is kind of unusual.
  5. I grew up with a 78 rpm Zenith console until I was 10 years old or so. I remember we always had an envelope of needles. It was a Zenith, and looked like this except is had only the red tonearm. It was 78 rpm only, and all-tube electronics (the design came out in 1948). Fortunately we got a 33 rpm stereo console around 1963, just when The Beatles hit. It was similar--but not identical--to this: Yeah. Anthrax is particularly known for their timeless output on 78 RPM shellac 10" records.

    Shipping To A USPS PO Box

    Ditto, I am in a small town. The last four or five guitars I have purchased have been delivered to my PO Box. Once you have been paid, you are in control of the transaction. Not sure how you could get scammed?

    Shipping To A USPS PO Box

    I live in a small town and get things shipped to my PO Box all the time. Never a Guitar tho. Fedex and UPS deliver to the same post office. It's going to be more expensive using USPS than Fedex, which I have found to have the best pricing for shipping guitars. Get the money in your hands 1st tho, insure it and your covered. You can send it signature required. Probably a good idea.

    Shipping To A USPS PO Box

    In a word NO! don't do it!.................that is IMHO........................just to much risk involved.
  9. Has anyone shipped a guitar to a USPS PO Box before? I`ve shipped many guitars, but never to a PO Box. Is that Kosher? Is a signature possible? They want to pay Paypal Gift. I`m a little worried but I figured I`d wait for the money to clear and withdrawl it first before shipping the guitar. Thank you.

    Glenn Tipton

    A few weeks ago, I was bouncing around YouTube and came across the last show they did in NYC during their 1998 tour (which I was at and was the first and only time I met the band - except Tim, who ignored fans waiting for him). How time flies. 20 years ago, he was thrashing around stage, ripping every solo you can imagine. That's how I want to remember him. Time is a motherf*cker.

    1979 Hamer Sunburst Price Check

    When I think of a Hamer "Sunburst" that was "Restored" I always think of "Bad Bad Bart". owned by forum member "SHARK"..................such a cool guitar! That guitar also sported a Kahler and it was brought back to stock configuration by Jay Kolanda. ["MURKAT" here on the HFC] It shows what can be done given the time ,$$$$,and the right guy doing the work.This was not a easy or inexpensive repair to do but then nothing done right ever is and looking at the before and after photos of the guitar Jay knocked the restoration out of the park.

    News From The Bench

    Because you didn't find that out- I don't build. I am the visionary (some might argue that choice of term 😆 ) and I rely on those far more adept at bringing concepts to life.

    Hamer vs Gibson QC

    That sure would make a difference now wouldn't it?........................people who are valued and respected by the business they work for do much better.They tend to "INVEST' [And I'm not talking money,I'm talking about as people] themselves in the business and do a much better job of doing what they are doing when they are satisfied doing it.

    I'm sorry. Did you say CRACKLE CALI????????? *faints* My two favorite things put together. And how is it I'm only now finding out you build, too??

    Historic 4 digit restore.

    Wait, what are you restoring it to? The original black top? Or was it natural to begin with? If the former, then I imagine the grain, etc. wouldn't matter.
  20. I must confess I'm not really up on ARS, despite living here. Didn't J.E. Garnett leave the Swimming Pool Qs to play with ARS? I only know this 'cos I played with Anne Boston after she left the Qs. I do remember as a kid hearing "Spooky" on the radio all the time and thinking the guitars were rippin'. Oh, odd pairings. My old band (we sounded like Let's Active mostly) once opened for The Descendents.

    Glenn Tipton

    Listening to Eddie Trunk this afternoon and he said that word out of the Priest camp is not good. Apparently, Glenn's illness has caught up with him and he's not doing well at all. It's believeed he will no longer be able to appear with them. My heart is just broken. He is my guitar hero. Always will be. I know the end was inevitable when they announced he had Parkinson's, but, still...
  22. When I first saw the thread title, I thought it was going to be a Steve Haynie post. 😂 I love Glenn's stuff, awesome vocalist! JB's a monster too.

    Hamer vs Gibson QC

    I've owned a '96 Les Paul Custom that had the headstock inlay that was finished that you can see the outlines of the inlay and that someone threw some finish on it. I still own a '98 Hamer Artist Custom with the Hameritis finish issues on the near the nut and heel of the neck. The guitar itself plays well and is resonant regardless of the finish issue.

    Hamer vs Gibson QC

    I had a BCR Standard that had really bad orange peel. I sent it back, Platzer fixed it. Hamer wanted to refinish it, but never got their hands on it.

    YOU'LL DO FINE

    Setting the bar pretty low, but true nonetheless.

    The upside is people would still think it's better than Yoko.
