  1. Not exactly rare as it's a recent custom order but cool AF and hellyeahz, I'd get one but with a reversed head and 24 frets.
  2. I really have lost faith in Reverb between my issue with the numbnuts buyer who wanted a refund and claimed I sold him a "broken" guitar (the hairline cracks near the neck pocket) Reverb's policies and the myriad stories o' horror from others. Pisses me off because it's a good resource to reach buyers/sellers but for the dumbf*ckery and shady AF tactics by sellers and buyers and Reverb's policies.
  3. Got any reversed head, boomered Cali's? 😆
  4. Don'tcha hate it when imagination and and ambition outpace ability? 😑
  5. +1 While my classic hard rock/metal cover band efforts seems to be on life support and in need of resuscitation these days, I have been getting by with the originals project that is very much guitar driven. Moreover, I've been writing a lot and am considering starting up another original hard rock project for tunes that don't quite fit the vibe of the other band Then there are some prospective collaborations with some fellow HFCers in the works, too. Good on ya that you're still involved, and on such a diverse level, with guitar-driven music.
  6. I'm sure my paltry 9- 42 Cobalt Slinkys don't inflict the same damage (nor have the same monstrous tone ) but, it's the damned SS jumbo frets that seem to be culprit. Slamming my ring finger into them repeatedly in an over-vigorous and perhaps death grip-aided slide, is the fiend.
  7. I've isolated the cause to specifically a slide or movement up the string(s) as the source of the pain is on the pinky side. The good news is: in the time since posting this, I tried it out (gingerly) on some guitar playing and found it dissipated. Good thing, too, as I ended up noodling for about 70 minutes or so and was rewarded with a cool new riff and song idea for my troubles. There was no refusing anything. I have had this issue a few times before and waiting a bit resolved it. I tried the same approach again and it worked.
  8. Jamming Thursday night with the originals unit, I developed a searing pain in my fret hand ring finger tip. I've done this once or twice before. Likely from some specific combination of pressing too hard and a sudden movement over a fret(s) that produced the short term nerve damage. Sliding up a string, the length of the fret board has produced it as well. Usually, it went away within 24 hours. Not so this time. Not gonna rush out to see a nerve specialist just yet but I will inquire of the board: Anyone also experience this issue ? Duration? Home remedies and treatments, in addition to laying off playing, that worked for you?
  9. Sheeee-iiitttt. Y'all are going about it all wrong. If yer guitar sounds shitty, change the guitar, then the amp, then the pedals and then the cables. Going to all that trouble changing strings to solve a problem that can be fixed with all new gear. FFS. Use yer heads.
  10. Has anyone tried to play it, though? I mean, a few have launched themselves from it but...
  11. Yup. As with the world of art, music & film making, we're seeing less innovation and invention and more and more revisiting of classics and already established themes and concepts. I'm of the notion that there is a finite amount of visual variations and as each year passes it becomes more difficult to find them. Then there's the issue of subjective assessment. I believe Nathan of Brain Fertilizer has amply shown that one man's butt-ugly potato-looking thing is another man's beauteous guitar. 😉
  12. Yup. I've seen listings that had just enough info/images to prompt me to throw in a bid and THEN ask for more info on features via photos. No harm in doing that.
  13. This video amply illustrates how time and repetition color my aesthetic tastes and preferences. I'd make a lousy critic of new designs given my affinity for the classics I grew up with. Most of these had little to no appeal. Why mess with success? was my reoccurring knee jerk reaction. In my puny, insignificant world, designs like the Strat, the Lester, the Standard, Californian and Star still are top dogs. Everything else seems derivative and/or watered down. Or just plain ugly. But that's long term conditioning for ya.
  14. Yeah, that, too! Say, can I interest you in a bridge I'm selling?
  15. Welcome back and enjoy your band time! The best part of being in a"working" band is the built in excuse/rationalization to buy more guitars.

  17. You'd better specify standard 24.7" scale, too 'cause mine is 25.5" scale.
  18. I would imagine after Shane gets this completed, he'll have templates and the finer points of it stored in that steel trap of a mind of his. Producing additional Specters should be no problem.
  19. Jeez, for a split second, that looked like an eye-roll emoji...
  20. It arrived today! Holy sh*t, this thing is sweet! Gotta be one of the nicest necks on a Hamer I've ever molested.
  21. On point. I don't find the subject matter bothersome, just the manner in which it was rendered. Yeah, I get that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But in the realm of well-handled airbrushing and choice of styles that could have been opted for, well... I'm glad LucSulla is digging it.
