  1. 2005 Hamer Studio Custom Transparent Black with an unbound headstock that I picked up from another member probably around 2008. A few years later I realized a dream by working with BCR Greg to install a third humbucker. The Pickups are medium output Fralins and the tone pot is a push/pull to will blend in the volume of the middle pickup when activated. Plays like a dream, plenty of fret life and no known issues. At the time of the alterations, Greg also expertly repaired a superficial finish blem the nearly invisible remnants of which I tried to capture in one of the pics. Includes perio

  2. Level sanded and polished my buddy's cherry and ziricote Strat over the past couple of days. Hope to be assembling it this weekend. Apologies for the sh!tty background.

  3. Music by my original band My Critical Mess. All guitar work was done on my Hamer Swirly '89 Cali Elite LE. More new music dropping soon!

  4. I didn’t buy this brand new, but I’ve had it since, at latest, 2002. It has been gigged and played a bunch, but well cared for. There are little superficial playwear scratches/swirls all over, but nothing through the finish or otherwise serious. It is currently equipped with graphite saddles, and the originals are in the case (OHSC included). It has been played about 10 minutes since I had the frets leveled by a really talented luthier, and it plays most excellently. $1200 shipped. no trades

  7. #31 of a limited series of (I believe) 35 or so. $1,850 shipped and paypal'd. I won't go into a bunch of accolades, those who are looking are probably at least familiar with the Korina Artist models. This one takes that model and adds crown inlays, neck binding and Duncan Seth Lovers pickups. Condition-wise, I would call it very good with only light and normal playwear. There is some very light fretwear in the cowboy chord area, but nothing that requires any work, IMO The finish on the back seems to be a little cloudy and I don't know if that playwear or something to do with the fini

  10. Well, I got this one assembled today and started the setup. It's playing great now, but I'll let it sit overnight before I try to tweak it any further. I really like the SD Everything Axe pickups. I added coil split on a push/pull pot for some options. I still need to mount the trem cavity cover. Once that's done, I'll give it a final polish and remove the protective plastic which is still on the pickguard, then take some better pictures. Hopefully my buddy will be picking it up next weekend. I think he'll like it.

  11. I was just listening to one of my favorite albums of all time: Rules by Supagroup. I remember what seems like a couple decades ago when the board was talking it up. Same thing with Godspeed the Shazam. Both incredible albums that I never would have heard without the HFC. This place doesn’t suck.

  13. So I've been staying at my father in laws who is recovering from a knee replacement surgery!! I lived here in his with my wife while we were in between moves about 5 yrs ago and of course I left a bunch of gear behind in our old bedroom .. so I started going though cases and was reunited with this 1982 special that was white and beat up bad at one time that I had re-done by Aaron Henderson of lowel guitars.. he did fret job crown inlays and new top. Crazy how I haven't played this guitar in maybe 7 yrs and thing plays and sounds amazing. I had to tweak the neck lil and that's it .. i let he

  14. Hendrix' influence on me as a kid and as guitar player are profound. I've often said that KISS made me wanna pick up a guitar but Hendrix made me wanna learn how to play it. I listened to him incessantly in the late 70's and 80's. His music was always something of a wondrous and frustrating enigma to me. I could learn the notes he played (just barely) but never even came close to the mojo he imparted to them, the magical wonderful way they were engineered both organically and mechanically. He was the perfect storm of feel, finesse, raw energy, psychedelia, and even some progressive aspect

  16. GJ2 would almost have to go away. A big reason I never got interested in Friedman guitars is that, as far as I know and anyone ever indicated, they were built by the same guy at the same place with the same CNC as the GJ2s. The main differences were the headstock, the name, the finishes, and another $1,000. Why on earth would I pay that much money for a rose by any other name?

  20. Verily, verily. It would help quite a bit if these corporate program directors would dig a bit deeper in the Hendrix catalog and play something other than "Purple Haze", "Fire", "Watchtower", and "Hey Joe". Seriously, when was the last time you heard, say, "Love or Confusion" on FM radio?

  25. "We carefully roll the amp down the staircase as if you've played bars for 30 years and dropped it a few times. Mojo galore." Now they won't have to do the marketing. 😆

  26. I wish they would ditch the relic crap and knock some off the price. I guess that's what Friedman wants, but I don't think anyone would want to buy a relic'd amp, would they? Or is that the next big thing?

  29. its really nice ... 1 3/4" nut "They say" the body is an exact replica of the tele body Seymour Duncan carved for Jeff Beck. The pots were also designed by SD and Jeff Beck. And the neck is an exact copy of a 53 broadcaster neck. Callaham parts. SD custom shop pickups. ASH. French polish. it feels like custom shop without being all fancy. i'm not a Tele expert like some of you but this is the bomb, as the kids say these days

  35. I recall the first time I saw or heard a Duo-Tone, it was Pearl Jam at Red Rocks back in 1995 (on their ill-fated self-sponsored tour that only lasted 5-7 dates IIRC) as I was lucky enough to be in the front row and when they started playing "Daughter" I was looking around on the stage to see who was playing the acoustic intro, then realized the guitarist was playing it on a Hamer DuoTone. That was a mesmerizing moment for me (the concert wasn't bad either 😉) and I was determined to get one someday. Took me another 14 years but I finally got my first one in 2009 (it's a '96 3-holer in Natura

  40. I thought I had posted some final shots when I wrapped up shooting finish on this one, but apparently I spaced it. Since my buddy wanted a satin neck, I just shot a few more coats of the Mohawk instrument sealer and left it at that. It's pretty much just a satin nitro and Mohawk says it can be used as a standalone finish, so we're gonna try it. If he doesn't like it, I'll scuff it and shoot a couple coats of gloss over it. On the pore filling front, I handled the rest of the bad ones with drop fills before shooting the gloss coats. This worked really well. Anyway, here are a f
