  1. Saw this on FB the Lexington, KY. Wood looks nice. I did a search and it should have come with robotic tuners but does not look like it did. A few odd thing like brass nut/zero fret. Price is now $720. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2430437383900098/
  2. Not a problem to get to the ‘Ville. Heck, I’ll gig it for you!
  3. Let me know if you play it out. I’m near Lexington.
  4. Great acquisition. If you want to play a Hamer instead of collect, a little wear and tear makes it even more affordable and with fewer worries.
  5. My acoustic based band uses Fishman Loudbox minis for small to medium venues. One instrument and one mic per Loudbox. They get good volume and there are larger versions. $350 new. Have DI out should you want to go to a larger system. Not sure how well it works for electric bass, there are lots of good options including Fender and Ampeg bass amps. Bose systems can get loud. They are designed to sit behind you and also serve as a monitor. For the number of inputs you need, get a lower cost mixer as the Bose add-on mixer is also expensive. There are some copy cat systems that are like Bose that cost less. If you need to be louder than Loudbox, a Bose or typical PA is needed. I don’t have a cost compare between a powered speaker setup versus a powered board or separate amp, mixer, speakers. Sounds like 4 Loudboxes plus a bass amp are minimum, so $1400 plus bass amp plus mics, etc. No monitors, just listen Bose plus mixer from around $1400 and up depending which system, close to $3K with extra board and mics Powered speaker system about $1K plus mics, stands, AC cords. Monitors extra if you want them ($400 for 2)
  6. Dang, would have pounced immediately! A Korina Special at that price is like a vacuum on the wallet.
  7. Says it was just re-listed Hamer Studio Custom GT P-90 2005 Goldtop https://reverb.com/item/26222194-hamer-studio-custom-gt-p-90-2005-goldtop?utm_source=android-app&utm_medium=share
  8. The top looks like spruce but thick. Could be chambered under the f holes
  9. Can't speak to what it does for tone but a gratuitous pic of my Boogie. I think it must sound better than vinyl covered plywood.
  10. And hard maple Common Name(s): Hard Maple, Sugar Maple, Rock Maple Scientific Name: Acer saccharum Distribution: Northeastern North America Tree Size: 80-115 ft (25-35 m) tall, 2-3 ft (.6-1.0 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 44 lbs/ft3 (705 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .56, .71 Janka Hardness: 1,450 lbf (6,450 N) Modulus of Rupture: 15,800 lbf/in2 (109.0 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,830,000 lbf/in2 (12.62 GPa) Crushing Strength: 7,830 lbf/in2 (54.0 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 4.8%, Tangential: 9.9%, Volumetric: 14.7%, T/R Ratio: 2.1
  11. Some data, though it won’t directly translate to what our ears hear and hands feel. And natural variations. Similar properties so I would guess selection of trees/boards will make a large difference instrument to instrument. Limbs is a little less dense, a little less hard than Mahogany on average. Limba (Terminalia superba) Common Name(s): Limba, Black Limba, White Limba, Korina, Afara Scientific Name: Terminalia superba Distribution: Tropical western Africa Tree Size: 65-100 ft (20-30 m) tall, 5-7 ft (1.5-2.2 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 35 lbs/ft3 (555 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .43, .56 Janka Hardness: 670 lbf (2,990 N) Modulus of Rupture: 12,510 lbf/in2 (86.2 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,520,000 lbf/in2 (10.49 GPa) Crushing Strength: 6,580 lbf/in2 (45.4 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 4.3%, Tangential: 6.3%, Volumetric: 10.8%, T/R Ratio: 1.5 Honduran Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) Common Name(s): Honduran Mahogany, Honduras Mahogany, American Mahogany, Genuine Mahogany, Big-Leaf Mahogany, Brazilian Mahogany Scientific Name: Swietenia macrophylla Distribution: From Southern Mexico to central South America; also commonly grown on plantations Tree Size: 150-200 ft (46-60 m) tall, 3-6 ft (1-2 m) trunk diameter Average Dried Weight: 37 lbs/ft3 (590 kg/m3) Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .52, .59 Janka Hardness: 900 lbf (4,020 N) Modulus of Rupture: 11,710 lbf/in2 (80.8 MPa) Elastic Modulus: 1,458,000 lbf/in2 (10.06 GPa) Crushing Strength: 6,760 lbf/in2 (46.6 MPa) Shrinkage: Radial: 2.9%, Tangential: 4.3%, Volumetric: 7.5%, T/R Ratio: 1.5
  12. Love the Marshall/Les Paul combination but it has been a long time since I’ve had it out, needs room to breathe. And then there is the barber chair. The little Boogie is good with any guitar, as is the MKIIA. And a Hamer!
  13. First band. I'm on the left with a Fender Mustang (red, no longer have it). Think this is 1972, 9th grade.
  14. Time to play the lottery. I'll also get Korina guitars if I win big
