  1. A great deal. I picked up a set of Ultimates for my Studio Custom last year.
  2. If I had the cash I would have snagged it. One of the nicest looking guitars I have seen.
  3. My impressions of Red Moon Tchula. First, I don’t really use distortion pedals, I prefer Boogie preamp distortion. However, the Tchula is quite different. Basic operation is left side is mild overdrive, responsive to the guitar volume control and picking attack. No settings, just on or off. The right side is another of the same, stacked on top. The knob gives you more saturation, not so much more output. Still responsive to volume knob and picking. Somewhere around noon is where you really start hearing a difference. Fairly transparent as far as changing the basic tone, but has what I would call a slight shift to upper mid-range. Lows still come through. Sort of juicy distortion and very fun to play. Very interactive with my MKIIA. Tone and response changes with Vol 1, pull-shift (mid-boost) and treble. With an early switching amp, I now have 3 to 5 tones. If just using clean, 3. If using distortion channel there are 6 but gets to be too much gain unless you dial back the distortion channel gain. One pedal = multiple distortion tones. Depending on the amp input level, the Red Moon doesn’t really give an overall volume boost. You can use old-school guitar knob control, a boost pedal (up front or in a loop) or a volume pedal.if you want to slam your amp front end hard, you need something else. I’m looking forward to getting it out to a gig and seeing how the added tones work. I may be able to have a cleaner clean and still have a good high gain with added options between them.
  4. Got a tracking number for my Red Moon Tchula. Meaning number assigned, has not left the building yet.
  5. Some instruments will hold value or go for all the normal reasons. For Hamer’s specifically, I don’t see prices going up in general. Studio Customs have been listing higher in 2019 but maybe not really selling higher. Predictions - > Good original condition Sunbursts and Standards will be strong in 2020. Rare, historic and beautiful instruments > Everything later will hold steady. Some tops/finishes will be stronger. > Special editions, anniversary, etc. will be a mixed bag. Collect or play? Lean to collect > Korina seems to be strong and will remain strong. Especially good examples of Standards. Not sure I see korina going up a lot as they are at a premium to comparable models > Super Strats - I don’t follow closely, anyone else care to predict.
  6. Nice condition but not any flame I could see. I think Ed King’s Les Paul went for more but not a lot more. I can imagine Rick can say he played it a sell it at a profit later. IF I had that scratch I would have paid that price.
  7. I use the old Martin method to install strings which locks it at the tuning post. Then stretch the heck out of them while tuning up. Then play in for 5 or 10 minutes and stretch any that are still drifting. Make sure your nut is cut well.
  8. YouTube clip from NAMM. TGP rumors of $1300-$1400 (MRSP?). Good marketing to generate buzz, the set final
  9. Yes slow loading pages at times, even going back to the previous page.
  10. Another model showed up. Wonder what else may show up. 5E3 mini LES LIUS
  11. Red Moon Tchula ordered. $100 plus shipping, no brainer.
  12. RS Guitarworks has pots but I don’t know if the taper matches Hamer
  13. Josh is running a special, check his FB page
  14. Fishman Loudbox Mini. I simply use the built in reverb. One vocal Mic and you are set. Has a line out if you need to patch to a main system. I play a Martin HD-28 with a Lyric pickup.
