  1. Here’s a thread I can contribute to. I’m not sure if this was total concentration or just me struggling to remember the complex chord progression of Blitzkrieg Bop.
  2. I hear a Drive By Truckers influence. That's a good thing.
  3. I think you're right. The B1 is very similar to a Custom Shop R9, but balanced, more comfortable (with the belly cut) and with better upper fret access.
  4. Amazing. One of my favorite RT songs. Thanks!
  5. I think I did OK on this one. Guitar Center of West Palm Beach had it listed in "great" condition and they weren't lying. Easily 9.5/10 like it had been put away and never played. The original case doesn't have a scratch. Even had the hang tags and a Baker sticker in the case pocket. I picked it up this afternoon. It needs a new set of strings, but it has an angelic acoustic voice. Thanks for the help!
  6. Thank you both! Much appreciated.
  7. There's a Baker B1 for sale near me. Listed as a US model but I recall that these were made in Japan for a period of time. Can you tell by the headstock?
  8. Any chance Terry McInturff was involved in the design? I see some Empress in that one.
  9. @kizanski to the white courtesy phone, please
  10. Shortly after I moved to Minneapolis in 1999 I heard about a Hamer collector who was thinning his stash. I called him and he invited me to look over a few guitars that he was selling. I left with the "Seafoam Trio". A T51, Daytona and Special all with original factory seafoam green paint. All were great guitars. I sold the T51 to Bruce, not sure if he still has it. Unfortunately, I don't have photos.
  11. Ten Million Slaves Slaves by Otis Taylor. Brilliant song used as the intro to the hugely disappointing Michael Mann adaptation of "Public Enemies".
  12. Florida is beautiful, hot and overrun by people from New York. I haven't run into "Florida Man" but Bentley driving Long Island man is pretty common. I'm enjoying it.
  13. That's probably the least ugly Kammerer I've seen. I don't want it anywhere near me, but still . . . .
  14. I would have jumped on that one had I seen it before it sold. Despite the questionable choice of hardware, the Custom was the best of the Newport variants, IMO. Stupid low price.
  15. May I be the first to say Happy 4321 day, Bruce. The basement looks great. Wish I could have been there.
  16. Thanks. Nut width is 1 11/16", Radius is 10-16" compound. You can get different specs from Warmoth.
