  3. Looks really nice: Spruce top Happy Thanksgiving https://sacramento.craigslist.org/msg/7556842926.html
  4. Nice — Looks like a time capsule condition guitar! ‘79? How’s the neck feeling?
  5. Did not realize that it was a blended heel on the earlier version.
  6. Beauty top on the new/natural acquisition! Do the other ‘Rages feature neck-through construction? I’m not used to seeing a neck heel (albeit a small one) like the new one has. Crank it!
  7. I’ve seen a similar body shape before on Koll Guitars.
  8. Hey @Biz Prof, nice history lesson on the OFR, I reckon then that this may be an early Chaparral? I don't believe I've seen a white one before, and it doesn't appear to be a pearl white. And credit to @RobB for rememebering the Rockinger. Weren't some pre-OFR Kramers shipped with the Rockinger? Now, let's discuss the rhythm pickup on the subject Chaparral. Wut? Also, it appears the guitar had different knobs installed during this shot.
  9. Looks Tidy except for the Reynolds wrap in the control cavity. Unsure what brand the trem is. 1987 Hamer Chaparral Set neck - musical instruments - by owner - sale (craigslist.org)
  10. Beautiful neck and scalloping. I’d be interested to understand how the scallops were executed relative to the inlays and frets — it occurs to me that the inlay material would need to have been thicker than usual (in order to maintain the desired shape after scalloping) and inlaid first, then frets, then scalloping. But, I’m aguessin’. I hope you enjoy it @NABF!
  11. @RobB: Like maybe the Yankee Rose triple neck?
  12. Love the TAMI segment, unprecedented energy! FYI: The Rolling F Stones, the poor bastids, had to FOLLOW JB’s TAMI set.
  13. Natural spruce top, looks nice, case is beat up @Dutchman: weren’t you looking for one of these? https://reverb.com/item/61532545-hamer-monaco-lll-2005-trans-amber-ohsc-monaco-iii-bigsby

  15. The mahogany is nice. HATE the toggle switch location. https://themusicemporium.com/products/rodriguez-double-cut-humbuckers-sunburst-used
  16. There are two Hamer Korina V’s at Guitar Center for $4200 each. One is red (good condition) and the other is NAT (excellent condition). https://www.guitarcenter.com/Hamer/?typeAheadRedirect=true#pageName=brand-page&N=32072+32072&Nao=30&recsPerPage=30&postalCode=94564&radius=100&profileCountryCode=US&profileCurrencyCode=USD
  17. Thanks for the report @RobB, I was on the fence about going but glad I passed (from the sound of it). Reminds me when I saw Uli J Roth at some shithole club in Concord CA about 10+ years ago, though ALL he played WAS old Scorps -- there were also two 'lesser' guitar players on stage with him. I last saw MS in SF about 10+ years ago at (I believe) the Trocadero but could be mistaken. That was a good night. Fingers crossed for the MS 60th anniversary show!
  18. From the photo of the back the body appears to be 1 piece (alder). That neck is orange, though— exposure to smoke or just typical poor Guitar Sinner photography?
