  1. Ok. Yea retirement doesn't having to mean passing up a KILLER guitar like that. You're supposed to enjoy retirement as much as you can, and if this makes it way more enjoyable, then you deserve it. Congrats again on a killer score!
  2. WOW Gary, that's a real beauty. I personally hadn't seen a JB in that color, but I like it a lot. I'm really confused about this purchase. I thought because of retirement, you were getting rid of guitars. I guess you couldn't retire from buying guitars. Anyway, congrats on a KILLER score.
  3. That's one powerful and killer rig right there. Nice!!!
  4. That's a very classy looking Hamer you've got there. Congrats!!!
  5. Last year I picked up this Mesa Boogie Roadster Dual Recitifier 2x12 Combo for $400. On the use market, these are about $1700 or so. Most likely the guy took $200 for it.
  6. That is a really nice and clean example. Congrats!!!!
  7. Thanks a lot Gary. Actually I'd say it's a close tie between the '78 Hamer Black Bound & Crowned Sunburst for $180, and the '74 Fender Sunburst Jazz Bass I picked for $59.95 at the same pawnshop I got the Hamer at. Some would say the Hamer was a steal and others would say the Fender Jazz was a better one. I'm just happy I'm able to happen upon killer deals like these. I'm really glad I'm officially back the Hamer family again. 😀
  8. I was told that pawnshop don't rely on the sales of the merchandise that they sell in the store as their main form of income. The rely WAY more on the pawn tickets being paid on every month. They want these customers to keep paying and renewing the same pawn tickets over and over and over........... THAT'S where they make their money.
  9. I guess that last line does look pretty silly based on prior info. 😶 Sometimes the ADHD gets the best of me.
  10. I just finally found out it IS an '09 Fender Honey Blonde Highway 1 Tele with the very this nitro finish. I actually thought this was a Special which is worth about $500-600 , but it's a Highway 1, so it's worth about $850 -$950 . So I guess I did pretty good on this one Jon.
  11. I was doing my normal rounds, when I noticed this on a guitar stand in front of the racks. I saw the $100 price, but I thought for sure it was an MIM. Couldn't believe they were asking $100 for it. Took it to the counter and wanted to haggle because of the scratches and dents around the body. They said it just came out and they wouldn't budge on the price. I asked for the case and they said it didn't come with one. I said it should have one, and I wanted a case. They looked but couldn't find one. I told them they owed me one, and I be checking back later for one. They were OK with that. I haven't had a chance yet to put is through it's paces, but the neck feels great and it doesn't weight a ton. I don't normally post a pic of the receipt, but I didn't want anyone to cal BS on me.
  12. Thanks Gary. I think the obsessive repetition of doing this all day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, eventually pays off. I'm basically playing the numbers, and you gotta hit sooner or later. I think the average guy wouldn't be regimented enough to do this everyday without fail. It's my main hobby and LOVE the hunt. Who doesn't love picking up killer guitars and basses on the cheap to add to their collection? 😀
  13. Awesome. It really is a bad ass bass. Did you buy yours used as well?
  14. I forgot about that. If you have to sell a Hamer to another member on this forum, you have to sell it to them for $350. So it is a little better deal comparatively speaking. 😉
  15. It's not a neck through. I'm not lucky enough to score a neck through Hamer bass for $190. Even though it's a lowly bolt-on, it's still a very solid bass. I haven't put on new strings, got it intonated, or set the action, and it sounds and plays great. I imagine it's going to be amazing one I've gotten it properly set up.
