  1. That's just great. The ONE TIME I give an answer that's remotely legit and I get called out on it. Dammit.

  4. I’m not buying that bullshit... The relationship between the cathode/grid/plate is what gives a tube it’s “Sound”. I someone wants solid state buy a Yamaha amp!!

  5. Unusual to see an auction where the Kiss memorabilia are the least garish lots available.

  7. Well, this definitely scratches several itches that I've had for a while. The gold top itch, as well as the "replacement for my thin-neck special" itch. The neck is FABULOUS. It's got a tiny a bit of Hameritis around the neck joint, but nothing major. There's also some binding pull away on the lower side, which is common. There's a tiny dent in the goldtop, but otherwise it's great. I also love the color that the binding has faded to. It does have some rust on the strap buttons, so it looks to have been in a moist environment at some time. Thankfully I have a HUGE supply of nickel Dunlop

  14. Using your 500-song example, I hate that if you listen to a Clear Channel classic rock station anywhere in the country, the song list is 450 of the same songs and 50 that might be more popular in that area. I just watched a documentary on Amazon Prime about the corporate radio takeover. Some of my friends worked for one of the biggest stations in my area and the stories they told me were very similar to the ones in the doc. It's called Corporate FM for anyone who is interested. Luckily there is a tiny station in Ashland, VA (WHAN) that plays whatever the hell they want to. If they

  15. Ah, but the psychological and spiritual lift provided by guitars and playing music saves me a shit-ton of money on therapists and lawyers...

  18. Billy Idol orderd it for the Cyber Punk tour in 1993 and it only now got finished? And the person who buys it will immediately say "it plays better than any Hamer I've ever played", before he even played it?

  20. It looks like what I did was cut and pasted the 'Direct Link' code from IMGUR. i'm gonna have to make a note of that, especially since I usually don't enclose photos in my emails. Thanks again, gtrdaddy!

  25. Got this notice from Vintage Guitar Magazine in my email today, looks like the Indiana Guitar Show is still on for Sept. 26 and 27: https://mailchi.mp/vintageguitar.com/indiana-guitar-show?e=3cf5a4d2d4

  27. Don't know how I missed this thread, but it's reducing down to a simmering sauce that exposes classic rock radio for the 500 song rotation that it is. That said, I HATE THE FUCKING EAGLES. *I could listen to Ray Charles sing Georgia on my Mind and Susan Tedeschi sing Angel from Montgomery for the rest of my life

  29. You will never see feet in any of my photos. Shoes sometimes, but no feet. Is it really that hard for people to lean out just a bit, or maybe just put on shoes?

  30. Looks fantastic. Congrats! and I suspect there’s at least one member on here who is eternally grateful you’re wearing shoes...

  31. They need some sort of dial to "age" them or "mismatch" them (for power tube pairs) to be internet-guitar approved.

  33. For years I said "I don't get what's so good about gold tops", but somehow, slowly, I wanted one. I had been looking at the Gibson offerings for a while, but decided a Hamer was much more my speed. So I'm replacing gold hardware on the Special with a gold top on the Archtop. The neck is also just like on my other 1995 Archtop. So. nice.

  35. A memory photo of my C3 at pre-paint stage popped up on FB this AM and I got to thinking about how bittersweet it is to have one of the last handful of builds that came out of the shop before they were shuttered for good. So, after digging around, I found the rest of the photos that were sent to me as this Cali took shape. For your enjoyment.

  38. Did you ever read what this guy got away with? He was moving massive blow across country on some of those trucks carrying "tour support" under some of the biggest names of the 80s. Got caught by the feds. Then he got leniency by hosting/supporting that ridiculous Anti-Drug Russia mega-show, where all the top stars travelled on a jet to the USSR while completely waxed. This guy has great attorneys no doubt.

  39. I remember the Bernie Marsden interview where he talks about his collection and he said to his family he's equated them to things they're familiar with for when he passes. "This one is a BMW", "This one's a flat in this area" and so forth. Made me laugh.

  42. I never did answer that, did I? God my wife hates that. I asked Mike for 'big, like my 2005 Junior' and he knew exactly what that was and matched it perfectly. It's not a tree trunk, but a really nice comfortably big handful. So if you've played any of the BCR Juniors from around that same time period you'll have an idea what it is. I appreciate it more as I get older. What I didn't expect was how great the neck heel is. Best of any guitar I've ever picked up. It just perfectly flows into the palm of your hand. Pretty sweet.
