  1. Actually, it does appear to be a refin - there’s a “box” around the serial that wasn’t visible when I was looking on my phone screen. The serial looks like it was masked off.
  2. Was that at one of the Stevensville clinics? I recall hearing that same advice from him!
  3. I think that one finally found it's final home with me!
  4. I can't dig this one enough: Replaces my longtime Tech21, which replaced my Boogie Studio 22+. Compared to the Sock Monkey, the Boogie is just too heavy and TOO LOUD (and it's not bad at all).
  5. Sorry about that! I ended up not buying that guitar.
  6. Could be a partial refin. Body only maybe?
  7. If you have a car, I'd say take the drive to Louisville (on the way to Boulder) to hit Wildwood.
  8. Since it's not the same ownership, it likely didn't transfer.
  9. My understanding is in line with Bob and Brian’s recollections above. I also recall that in 2007 or thereabouts, Hamer was going to stop selling guitars with crown inlays. I was told to order a Standard by a certain date if I wanted crowns, because after that, they were to be no mas. That eventually got lifted, but for about a year or so, I had been the owner of the last Standard with crown inlays. 😆
  10. That guitar is worth (easily) three times that at "good guy" pricing. A fair deal all around for something that rare and unique would be somewhere in the low to mid-$2,000s. That would sell for a considerable number north on the open market.
  11. What gauge strings are you using?
