  1. That's a real beauty right there. Congrats!!! If I EVER can find a killer deal on a Pete Thorn sig, I WILL snag it.
  2. Thanks Peter. South Texas is a great area for music. A lot of talent here. The Carr isn't mine, I just quoted Dutchman's post. The amp is his, and you're right, it is an awesome amp.
  3. Thanks for much for the kind words Gary. My son and I are best friends, and we both love guitars and 70's rock music. We take weekend trips to San Antonio & Austin to check out as many guitar shops and restaurants as we can. We also go to check out live music as well. We're both going to see Jeff Beck in San Antonio on Sept. 22, which is going to be so cool. I don't have any other close friend I could go with that would enjoy and understand someone like Jeff Beck. My son is worthy of a gift like this for just being who he is.
  4. Nice collection Dutchman. I'm guessing he digs the Charvel the best. That's one sweet guitar.
  5. I commissioned a guitar to be built for him about 4 months ago without my son having any clue about it. So the guitar finally got finished and I planned on surprising him yesterday afternoon. He knows that I'm constantly scoring killer deals at pawnshops, and is pretty much used to the stories. I called him and told him that I scored one of the most amazing scores EVER in a pawnshop today. I told him to bring his camera because he was going to want photographic evidence of the score. When he got to the house, I stopped him and told him to give me his iphone so I could video him narrating this moment in his life. Here's the abbreviated video he posted on his Instagram last night. The video is under his profile pic. The Guitar. Here's the link https://www.instagram.com/ahernandez59/ Here are the specs of the guitar. Here are some pics he took of his guitar with his digital camera:
  6. Congrats!!!! Both of those are killer looking guitars, but the 1st Double cut is just AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING!!!!
  7. Congrats Bill. That sounded REALLY good. My son grew up listening to 70's and 80's rock because of me. He's done quite a few videos at the local college studio. The professor asked him to sing a PF cover they were doing for the education dept. there. Here's the video. https://youtu.be/QgRAlAQaVoE
  8. This is why I try so VERY hard to never unload a great guitar. I don't want to have to regret it in the future. Some guitars can never be replaced, and I never want to have to go there.
  9. WOW!!! All 3 a killer guitars, but the one in middle with the zebra pickups, was a real beauty. That's a killer looking trio you had Travis. Also, thanks for heads up for budman on JFC. That info could definitely come in handy one of these day.
  10. OK. I just didn't know where the question was coming from
  11. Thanks for the heads up Jeff. I really appreciate it.
  12. No. There's not damage at all. Are these guitars prone to damage in that area? The whole guitar body is in perfect condition as far as any crack, dents, gouges. It only has a few small scratched on the back of the guitar.
  13. That's too funny Gary. Haha! I didn't really steal this one. The were asking $500 for it, and it had just come out 1 hr. before I got there. I did a quick search on the Jackson Charvel forum and Reverb. After reading several threads and looking at several Reverb ads, I realized how rare and expensive these were. I tried my best to get them to come down, but they wouldn't budge. The guitar didn't come with a case, but I got them to throw in a Road Runner padded case. I think $500 is still a pretty good price for this guitar. I'm Happy.
  14. I really wasn't on the lookout for a pointy headstock 80's guitar, but at the price I got this for, it really was a no brainer. These guitars were only made for one year, and they're pretty sought after. The Amber color is the most sought after color, so I guess I lucked out on that. This is a mahogany body with a maple cap, so it makes it about the same weight as a Les Paul. The neck on this is amazingly comfortable and fast, and with the contoured set neck, it give killer access to the upper frets. The pickups are OK for now, but I will upgrade them in the future.
  15. I've seen WAY worse than this monstrosity ,but it's still on the level of "Burnt Body Relic" guitars.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. That's one powerful and killer rig right there. Nice!!!
  19. That's a very classy looking Hamer you've got there. Congrats!!!
  20. 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.
  21. That is a really nice and clean example. Congrats!!!!
  22. 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. 😀
  23. 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.
  24. I guess that last line does look pretty silly based on prior info. 😶 Sometimes the ADHD gets the best of me.
  25. 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.
