  1. Well, Brass is an alloy of Copper and Zinc, so.... Hameralloyitis?
  2. Vibratos and their quirks. It's like action and string gauge. We all have our preferences. I've got a few properly set up Kahler, Bigsby, Floyd & traditional strat vibratos. My OCD just doesn't like when they get added to the wrong guitar. (See any sadly modded Standard).
  3. Indeed, and if you need a roller bridge on a newport, you're doing it wrong.
  4. No affiliation: https://reverb.com/item/39001252-hamer-firebird-1986-alpine-white
  5. I only say that 'coz I sold mine (which was basically identical) for $650 last year. ... I think it was 650... still 300 more than tree fiddy
  6. This is on eBay, price seems a bit much, but they're taking offers. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hamer-usa-Guitar/143954681969?hash=item21845e2071:g:9GQAAOSwWuNgMPw3
  7. Man, I believe the appropriate term for this guitar in your country's parlance is: "the dog's bollocks!", is it not? Beautiful.
  8. I went googling for you and this is as close as I could find. They only got to MkIII, not V. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humber_Sceptre Seriously though, best of luck on the hunt. Will shout if I see one.
  9. It does seem a bit offside. We'll try to be more ecumenical in the future?
  10. My Chap that I sold (pictured) was 25&1/2", I'm betting this one is the same.
  11. I also remember that ad, I love Joe and his playing. Later I had the same reaction you did to the 80's guitars. But I really wanted a Koa V220 in about 1985. I'm still keeping a couple of Carvins, a AE185 and an ST300 with a piezo floyd on it. This one is great, but I have to reduce the number of HH guitars with a vibrato in my collection at this point.
  12. I'm letting go of an excellent example of Carvin/Kiesel's recent craftsmanship. Upgraded the trem to a Gotoh 510TS-BS, chromed brass saddles, a great bridge. Chambered body, a excellent mahogany body and neck. The top is nicely 3D in person. The top also has more of a hint of teal in person in the center. I'm asking SOLD on Reverb, plus actual shipping (continental US) PP/F&F, or other payment arrangements we might make. https://reverb.com/item/38836806-carvin-ct624-2014-deep-blue-flame-ct-624-kiesel-gotoh-510ts-bs
