  1. Those are the early 90's version the Sustain block bridge. See the groove for the height adjustment screws, those are the only version to have that feature.
  2. That one is tempting. I am sure it will not last long.
  3. email from them : Hey Matthew! That one is currently going for $1699.99. Our vintage specialist, Kent, is at the shop today if you wish to give him a call about it. The number is 813-254-8880 if you're interested. Skyler Alexandre maybe it too much attention too quickly...
  4. FYI : Not affiliated, I saw this on Instagram. https://www.replayguitar.com/ has a 1996 Hamer USA Standard in stock , flame top with dot inlays. $1700 , other then the pic on Instagram I know nothing about it. its not on there web site. you actually have to call.
  5. Look nice. Congrats. Most Carvins always seem like they are well built. Can only say i have played 3-4 of them over the years. Had a all mahogany neck thru tele style for a short time in the 90's , it was an OK guitar, but there are many many OK guitar brands out there. To each there own. I am sure some would say the same about our sacred Hamers.
  6. At one time I had used 2007 Mahogany Standard in Vintage Orange that was originally ordered though them. I think some one here has it now.
  7. Great find. Excited to see more photos. Have one only 11 numbers away from that one...
  8. I went to his shows for many year until the ticket prices went crazy. It hard to justify most big names shows at all due to the $$.
  9. Have finally gotten some time this weekend to work on guitar projects. Many of string changes, pickup swaps, got a input jack that needs replaced in an old Sunburst. Crank up some tunes and get to it!!!
  10. if you like how it sounds & plays. Don't mess with it. if anything , give it a few months before ya change the configuration.
  11. My thoughts exactly. Many may not have liked that guitar, but other would have enjoyed learning to play with one. Did they have a meeting at Gibson to decide how we can screw up more then the "we know who you r are video" ? I think they have topped it!
  12. I have my grandfather old Heathkit tube tester he built back in the 50’s . It will check just about every tube available at the time frame . But it’s not for sale .
  13. Find a local trophy shop that has a laser, just bring them design and you back plate. Done. I am 99% sure that how it was done one the ordinal batch. I have 3 with the checkerboard logo. They are just burning off the black Anodizing. Over time the Aluminum could oxidize in the exposed ares & turn white and little powdery.
  14. Any PRS, the McCarty is the only model i have ever connected with at all, even then the 90-mid 2000's McCarty still feel & play different then then model new models. PRS have outstanding build quality & most look damn fine, but just don't like how they play or sound. I've had several over the years , after I sold off the last one i decided they were not for me.
  15. Is this one a HFC approved color ? 25/50 VAC w/reverb
  16. Late 90's - early 2000's you could get 80's Specials , Vectors , prototypes for $400-600 all day long , if you could find them, there were not many shops that had used inventory online. When one popped up it went quickly. I use to make weekend trips to different areas and look up the music & pawn shops up in the phone book and plan out the day. Would always ask do you have any old Hamers around. It paid off once , the guy went in the back and bought out a Sunburst, still have that one. Best two deals were the GC by Hamer Chaparral for $150 , it was missing the Floyd rose, of course the Watson for $550 + $60 for import duty fee. Remember the USED gear by mail catalogs? The Hamers that showed up there were always gone by the time I called.
  17. when you start looking at the salad options on the menu instead of the burgers.
  18. roughly after the 25th anniversary year (until the logos ran out) that model just became the Artist Mahogany instead of the anniversary model.
  19. I like the TBX as a tone control. had my Shishkov built with one. I think the mid to late 90's USA & Mexico Fenders were very well built for the money. 96-98 seem to be the prefect years for me in consistency & build quality of the guitars. To each there own...
  20. Its got a 87 serial number. I would say late 87 time frame. I had a 87 Chaparral that I sold to another HFc'er that was only approx. 250 numbers away from this one. They were all spec. out the same other then the head stock logo & an ebony fretboard. This popped up on eBay a few years back, very dirty , missing the Floyd & all the cover plates as well. it been played quite a bit, some one had a Roland pickup installed in it at one time.
  21. That really translates to his wife has “em” in box somewhere he will never get to them again!!
