    When something like this pops up for $900, need doesn't enter into the equation.

    $3600 plus $100 for double boxed shipping and insurance (US lower 48). PayPal gift or you pay the fees. Comes with the original DD pick ups and four way switch which could be parted out. Hopefully the PhotoBucket library still works. So many looked at this people, PhotoBucket wanted me to pay a fee. * * * * * * * * * * * * * No other like this. The only Duco Frost Hamer ever produced. Jol said it took two tries to get it to work. Somewhere there is a blog post of him making the concoction and spraying. Same process applied to The Crow. The guitar is amazing and is in amazing condition. Greg V must have taken exceptional care. I can't see any fret wear. No dings, nicks or scratches. The case is like new. Big neck. I don't know how to measure it. Weighs only 7.45 pounds. It plays like a dream. Time to let it go. This should have been in The Book. Look at the PhotoBucket photo album. Each photo can be seen on its own. Some of the finish is worn down to what maybe was a base coat. The back of the neck looks like molten gold. See the photos. Personally I think it looks better with the wear. Also comes with the original Double Ds and the four-way switch. I don't know what brand of humbuckers are installed now. You can hear both the Double Ds and the HBs in the product demos below. $4500 shipped, double boxed and insured. Price will be adjusted downward if you pay with a US post office money order or bank check (not a personal check). Will ship only to US lower 48 buyer. No trades.

    https://reverb.com/item/23177783-hamer-t-62-1992-white Expensive, yes 😗, but I have been looking for one of these in this color and in condition since.... forever! Less than 7 lbs, excellent frets... this makes it my first Hamer in more than ten years, and the second T-62 in my position. Life IS good!

    Elliot Easton on numerous Cars songs. His solo's fit just right, aren't too short but also aren't so long they wear out there welcome and they all seem to stand the test of time. A few others that do it for me: Van Halen - Push Comes to Shove MSG - Attack of The Mad Axeman MSG - On and On Alcatrazz - Sky Fire Alcatrazz - Wire and Wood PIL - Ease Europe - The Final Countdown

    Most Newports have the chambering you see in the pic cmatthes posted earlier in the thread. The Newport 90 and triple-Filtertron Newports have a solid mahogany block running all the way down the middle. Maybe some other one-off Newports, too.

    The 5e3 is such a fun circuit. The 2 channels are highly interactive and this makes the amp very versatile. You can get sparkly BF Fender cleans by cranking the Mic channel all the way and plugging into the Instrument channel. Somewhere around 10 on the dial, the mids scoop out and so does the gain. It is such a pretty clean. It jumpers great and changing the 12ay7 in v1 to a 5751 or a 12ax7 radically changes the preamp. You can get a classic blues tone, Hotel California/Life In The Fast Lane all the way to Neil Young’s amp about to explode tone. A 5e3 does get loud pretty damn quick though. What speaker are you using? A Weber 12a125a is AWESOME in that circuit and has almost come to be seen as the standard.

    "Like a Hurricane" has a nice "raw" lead to it too.

    SOLD! : 2001 Korina Standard. 2 piece body with straight face grain and a really cool edge grain pattern. Plays nicely with very light fret wear in the cowboy chord area. Pickups are SD Alnico 2 Pro Slash set. Nice condition with a few dings and holes from a different set of tuners. Ding on the neck is behind the 11th fret. I replaced a few rusty pickup ring screws and put the originals in the case. Also, the neck PU mounting ring has been replaced with a Dimarzio neck PU ring. Includes OHSC. $1900 PP gift, shipped, CONUS

    1. Do any of you own more than one of the exact same thing (guitars/ amps/etc)? 2. Have any of you bought something you really didn't need, but the price was too good to pass up? The reason I'm asking--I got my Orange Custom Shop 50 amplifier for a good price, and i'm buying another one for an even better price, though I don't really need it. Am I nuts?

    Due to financial difficulties I need to let go of my Newport. It’s a 2006 model that I bought new in July of 2011. Colour is Black Cherryburst. I changed the original Schaller “step”-tuners for Grover Rotogrip locking tuners which fit the original screw holes, so no extra holes in the peg head. I prefer the look of the classic kidney tuners and - which is more important - they greatly help tuning stability with the Bigsby termolo. The original Schallers are long gone. The Bigsby was changed for a Callaham front roller which I think is an improvement over the original part (which will be included).The bridge Phat Cat pickup has been replaced by a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover bridge pup which gives a little more beef to that position. I also added a Vibramate String Spoiler which of course can be removed any time. Overall condition is very good. A few pick swirls that can probably be polished away. Frets are very good, some minor indention in the cowboy chord vicinity, but no problem at all. Long life for the frets ahead... Comes with CoA and OHSC, which is in mint condition and proof of CITES registration. The only gripe are a few small scratches on the back that I owe to a f**king guitar stand gone bad (the rubber moved out of place and gave way to a bare welding spot). I think about 1.400 EUR with free insured shipping within Germany. For EU-buyers outside of Germany we will negotiate splitting shipping costs. Thanks for looking! Gino Forgot: Orinigal chrome pickup frames are of course included!

    Typical is right. Comfortably Numb has become cliche it's so freaking perfect, but Gilmour offers many to choose from.. For me, he is the perfect soloist.

    The Push comes to shove solo is a VERY serious contender for best pinched harmonic.

    Stonge, I'm very appreciative for the replacement arms. They work great. You really went above and beyond in helping me with this. Thank you!

    I have some that are very similar, but not EXACTLY the same: I have two Hamer Studios. Same pickups. '93 in '59 Burst , and '95 in Indigo, Bound and Crowned I have two Hamer P90 specials, a 93 Candy Apple Red with a thin neck, and a 96 Cherry with a chunky neck. Only other difference is that one has Duncans, and one has Fralins I have two Hamer Diablos (which I should sell), both from 1993, one Cherry and One Amber. Only difference is the pickups I have two G&L Legacies, with the only real difference being color and the pickups. I have two SG standards, only different color and pickups I have two Stingray 5 basses, one with the HS config Ceramic pickups, and one with the single H Alnico I don't really have any duplication on the amplifier side. Yes I have GAS

    If you're referring to the 18-watt Marshall clones, there's several demos on YooToob, plus some demos here on a Premier Guitar review of the Mojotone and Tube Depot kits: https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/20990-the-mean-18-british-style-18-watt-amp-kits-from-mojotone-and-tube-depot I bought a Mojotone 18 watt kit head that HFC member Fractal built a few years back, my handwired 18-watt VHT Standard TMB heads are very good in comparison, but the assembled Mojotone kit head is my 'gold-standard' amp, no pun intended. If I had to sell one or the other, I'd keep the Mojotone kit head and sell the VHT heads. Plus, the Mojotone clone has a GREAT sounding footswitchable tremolo channel! There's several 5E3 clone demos on YooToob as well. I used to own a Kendrick Tweed Deluxe clone amp several years ago, the problem that I found with that one, is that I couldn't help myself from turning it up to Neil Young saturation levels! Like Jakeboy says above, the channels/volume controls are interactive, and that's part of the magic of the 5E3 Tweed Deluxe circuit.

    The cables you list will not work. As Scott pointed out host means host computer so to do this without a computer involved you need a "to host" adapter which essentially mimics a computer and turns the USB data into MIDI data on a classic MIDI 5-pin DIN connector. Four your setup the connection would look like this: Arius USB ---(USB Cable)--> TO HOST USB : TO HOST MIDI ---(MIDI Cable) --> ---(Reface MIDI breakout Cable) ---> Yamaha Reface YC Here are some to host adapters: MIDIPLUS USB MIDI HOST MODULE Since USB host adapters aren't especially cheap another option is to get a dedicated MIDI keyboard that has a standard MIDI output.

    I had to go out of town for work and ran across this on the local CL. It plays wicked, I just love it. It smells like smoke still, although not as bad as when I got it. I may swap out the chrome for black, I’m pretty lazy though. Sorry i I put this in the wrong area, I’m not sure how to move it

    Is it the exact same thing if the only difference is color?
  28. 1 point
    Typically, host means a computer. If the device has MIDI ports, look in the manual and check if it supports MIDI in, out and through or just MIDI out. MIDI in is what you need. But probably you'd have to hook them to a computer to wrangle them together. I'm no MIDI expert, though. My knowledge is very rudimentary, so everything I said may be incorrect.

    I am glad I am not the only one, though I am doing better than I once was. The majority of my duplicates are since gone after the purge of the past couple years. Why else would I have a couple surplus Mesa Blue Angels? Yes, the "extras" were at good prices. Great amps, esp with the "right" pedal upfront. (Heavy little buggers and I do NOT want to ship!) I still need to lighten up on a Huber Orca and also a Dolphin. And, most likely, a couple other nice things if/when I stop to think it through more completely. Life ends up getting too short to buy something with the idea of "flipping it", but I have often found it hard to resist a "bargain". I mean, who knows, the second one MIGHT be better than the existing one!

    Hi Willie G. Moseley, I just listened to the first 1 min 44 seconds, it's all 4/4 time throughout. The third note on the hi-hat is the 1 of the bar. The horn section plays on the " and two " and the " and four" as in : 1+2 3+4 I hope this helps. Regards, Tobias

    Ting, go light one up and listen to Blak N Blu. What a great album, I hope Gary keeps evolving and resists the chains of the Blues Purist. That last video was killer, thanks for posting. http://www.wtfpod.com/podcast/episode-998-gary-clark-jr

    The Rockets had a hit with their cover in 1979: The original Fleetwood Mac version: I saw Mike Campbell (former Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers guitarist) sing/play it with the current Fleetwood Mac lineup. That was damned good...

    Here's another pic from Reverb ... one of these days I might take better pics but Im not that concerned about it The rosewood fretboard is of a medium darkness which normally I might have an issue with, but it is nicely figured and contrasts with the black of the body. I got the impression that whoever built this guitar put some thought into it.

    What happened was I bought a blingier Newport and really liked it but the victory inlays etc. arent exactly my cup of tea. I hung it up on my wall and stood there looking at it, I honestly said out loud "I love this guitar, too bad its not black with dots.". The very next day I saw this one on Reverb. Black with dots. I didnt know they even made Newports in black. So I had to have it, that being a sign n all. Fortunately I'm not married so I can get away with this shit.

    Either way, Phat Cats mounted in a hand-carved spruce archtop are a synergistic combination (IMO).

    Clean enough to eat off... great shape apart from a ding in the headstock. Neck isn't small. Case is different from later Hamers: different shape and handle. And the cutaway on the bass side is in a straight line to the one on the treble side (though the horn is still longer). Interesting to see how the guitars evolved, as this is the oldest Hamer I've ever touched. Can't wait to plug it in!

    Just a quick point about your Ibanez...those were made from Sen, a Japanese variant of Ash, not Korina. They were stained with an antique yellow to give the appearance of Korina, and those are ass-kicking guitars, but definitely not Korina.

    Guitarist/songwriter J.R. Cobb crossed the way peacefully this afternoon at around 5 p.m., after suffering a heart attack yesterday. Cobb's legacy is enviable: Guitarist for the Classics IV, co-songwriter of "Traces", "Stormy", "Spooky", "Be Young, Be Foolish", "Rock Bottom" and umpteen other hits, guitarist for the Atlanta Rhythm Section, guitarist for the Highwaymen. He was a hell of an underrated slide player, IMO. And he and his wife Bert were married for over 52 years. A true professional who believed in the power of music. ,
