  2. I guess I'll join this appreciation thread tonight, as well
  3. well i think we're all unanimous on the knobs......just beautiful, and congratulations on the finished product!!!
  4. thats what is so unfortunate about US built guitars. Big $$$$ for new retail. These outsourced guitars can have the same quality but for so much less that we've gotten used to being able to buy at a certain price point. Now, instead of the us market adjusting, i think they are trying to retain the "quality of the brand" in maintaining their high prices. If you drop the price, you must have dropped the quality, right? So, what do you do if you are an american manufacturer that needs to maintain brand, but not price yourself out of the market and at the same time try to compete against the big 2 or 3 who havent lowered their us built or custom prices either?
  5. Thats exactly what else I wanted to get to, is the character of people who buy Hamers. We dont do it because "so and so" from suck nut band on rock 105 point whatever plays em'. We buy them because we love a fine instrument, and we love to play them (most of us) And typically none of us have a bazillion dollars to drop on customs or vintage stuff (which in all honesty, holds no appeal to me) Then to take that further, its not that we want a cheap guitar or we'd all be playin used schecters. We're willing to spend $1000 or more for something nice and we all have a shit load of them!!!! If we dont have more than 2 or 3, we want to. I certainly would'nt be on this forum if I didnt love Hamer. Ive been on other guitar forums, and havent found one yet without a half a dozen jerks on there, which makes it very unenjoyable. this is the place, and all you guys are for the most part , cool to talk with.
  6. I posted this in Hamer brand loyalty, but I felt like I needed to make sure it was seen, and get others thoughts on this...........Hope this doesnt seem egotistical, I just would like to get others more specific opinions on the "Love of Hamers" and how deep that goes with each of you individually. Post as originally stated: Aside from my signature ibanez and my acoustics, i have no reason to buy other brands than Hamer. Ill explain why. I dont like fenders, I dont like gibsons, Except for my Ibanez's, i dont like imports. I dont like guitars with enormous headstocks i.e. Dean...........Cannot f'n stand those huge wingy headstocks. I dont like bolt-ons, I dont typically like painted instruments, though I have 4. Over the years ive been willing to buy whatever i play that i like regardless of these opinions, but i have found, opinions change over time. I like thin necks, I like fat necks, I like tone, I like singles, I like hums. I love set necks, and thick deep clear coats and beautiful would grain. I like heavy guitars, i like light guitars. very much like zorrow, i play all of them. Ive stated this before here, Ive never picked up a USA Hamer that I didnt like. Ive never had to constantly adjust the necks or action or intination on any of them.............EVER !!!!! They always stay set up regardless of humidity, temp, you name it. I just pick them up and play the shit out of them!!!! Why would I ever play something else. Ive played hundreds of different guitars, and none of them make me happier or solicit the same excitment and devotion than Hamer has. Have I had my issues with custom orders like others, YES. did it turn me off? YES for a time, but I came back for all of the reasons stated above. I know other guitars exist that have the same options, specs, looks an appeal, especially if its a custom from some obscure artisans' shop. There is something about a Hamer that is perfect for me. All of the models I own are guitars that i wouldnt give up for anything........anything!!! Im not new to Hamers and I dont have a blind, nieve love for anything..............I know this was long, but i feel like from my standpoint, it needed to be said.

  8. that looks like a seriously cool vibe kinda place to play...........not much room overhead for cool jumps, is that a garage door next to you there? BTW...really really cool bass!!
  9. im not one to sound picky or ask for something not available, but I love the purple, however i play a thinner pick. The ones closest to a .60 in purple would be my ultimate. Do you have any pics of the orange? If we dont have a paypal account, should we just arrange to send you a check or money order,etc.? Please e mail me, or ill pm you if i dont hear from you soon thanks, picks look great!!! makes me feel like we belong to some sort of fan club or something.....
  10. ive never been a big fan of the ovation tone.....spend a couple years in hawaii and youll get so sick of hearin it youll want to vomit just thinkin about it. Used taylor. ive noticed that they dont seem to be holding value lately. I dont know about under a thousand, but you can get them in good shape, cause we all baby what weve spent 3k on. Not usa but the artwood series Ibanez sound beautiful for the money, and you can get some gorgeous exotics. check ebay there too. a lot of dealers blowing those out. I have an artwood 7-string ibanez and it has a beautful beatuful tone.......jumbo, so that has a lot to do with it, plus real big neck being that its a 7
  11. i think a lot of those lp guys dont want to open a can of worms. " i ll consider my LP the best of the best, so i wont ask about another nice production guitar for fear that itll show me stupid" i dont mean to come down on any LP guys hear on the forum, but i havent had any good experience with them AT ALL. And further more, the resale value of LP's along with people who dont know dick about guitars are all about les paul, les paul, les paul, les paul, les paul. im showing my jerk here, but im so balls deep in love with Hamers, that its gonna come out!!!
  12. very very cool.......it looks gorgeous!!!! now if it only had curb feelers
  13. Ebony for me, rosewood next. I have only liked maple on one guitar, the sillouette (music man) felt great, sounded gorgeous. The only other one i want to try is the cocabolo. Stole my idea, I had that cab made out of it and thought, if i ever have a custom built, i want a cocabolo fretboard. Im not envious of anything................except that fretboard, it actually almost angered me
  14. they are exceptional instruments, and are probably the only brand that can be bought without playing 'em first, which truly says it all about the quality. +1 How many times have all of us bought one from another member of the forum and when opened it up and played it, said "this guitar sucks!!" very seldom if at all
  15. i absolutely love hamers. I too had the experience of having my custom order refused back in 98'. That stopped me from buying them for a long time. I came around though. i stopped playing bolt ons w/ the exception of the ibanez guitars i have. there just isnt another set neck guitar that I feel compares. there is always an inconsistancy in other manufacturers that i just havent found with Hamer. I have played so many hamers of different years, models, pick up configs, etc. and have never, and i mean never been dissapointed. PRS, Gibson, Fender, all of them have a problem with QC, i guess. I realize many guitars will "feel" and "sound" different of the same model. Call it bias, call it nietivity, whatever, but I have not experienced this with Hamer...........................NOT ONCE even with the Korean Slammers BTW: 5 USA Hamers 1 Slammer 4 Ibanez 1 Schecter 1 Jackson 2 BC Rich 1 Yamaha Pacifica
