  1. Me, from last Saturday night. Yikes.
  2. Paid via Venmo and PM'd my info on Monday 09/20/21. Thanks!
  3. When I first saw the subject line I thought maybe it was this one...
  4. Firstly, I bought a Dunable Baphomet pickup for it.
  5. Way back in November I bought @zenmindbeginner's Seymour Duncan Little '59 pickup and put in my cheapie Rogue lap steel. The original pickup was weak, single-coil garbage, but it sounds much better now. Thanks, Geoff! Here it is on "Tough Times," originally written and recorded by John Brim (of "Ice Cream Man" fame) in 1953. I've been playing open-G on lap steel for quite a while, but this is my first foray into open-E on a lap. So my vocabulary of open-E licks is still a work in progress.
  6. "The previous owner had the neck replaced by Hamer in the 80's due to a break, but then broke the neck again recently and had it professionally repaired. However, neck is off center and E and A strings fret out past 12th fret." So which repair was done by Hamer and which one was "professionally repaired"? The headstock break that looks like it was glued together by a preschooler or the one where they put the neck back on crooked?
  7. ...and the listing is still active. https://austin.craigslist.org/msg/d/austin-old-electric-guitar/7343601363.html Maybe he's using the ad to lure potential buyers into his secret underground lair, where he holds them hostage. When he's collected enough victims - er, "potential buyers," he'll be able to fulfill his lifelong dream of making a suit out of the skins of Hamer fans. "I'm here for the Hamer guitar." "Say, are you about a size fourteen?"
  8. Maybe I'm naive, but if the seller doesn't actually have possession the item being advertised, what's the purpose of an ad like this? Unless he really does have it and it's stolen, I suppose that's a possibility.
  9. It plays and sounds great! Exactly what you would expect from a Chap. The pots were a little scratchy when I got it (I don't think it had been played for a while), but that was easy to fix. Of course, like I said before, even though it goes against my usual "guitars are meant to be played" policy, I don't really plan on playing it all that much because I don't want rub off the signatures. If it was going to see more playing time, I would set it up for .010s (it currently has .009s) swap out the Schaller strap locks for Dunlops and get an appropriately yellow Couch strap for it.
