  1. Ah, Dantzig's signature. Thank you. Can you tell what year it was manufactured? Yes, this guy is not the "Bob" named in the autograph.
  2. Kind of tired of all the Eddie striped tributes since his passing. It just strikes me as cheesy. To each their own I guess.
  3. Been away with some pressing personal business for a few weeks and I received an email from a friend that has this Hamer Standard he purchased some time ago. He wanted to know if I could give him some details on what he had. So I thought I'd ask the gurus here. Yes, it's a lefty. Thanks in advance.
  4. I agree with Topeka and CMatt I cannot reconcile the channel rout from an Ibanez or Greco to this guitar. No doubt it is some sort of lawsuit era guitar, just not an Ibanez. It has the harmonica bridge but the angle of the rout toward the toggle just doesn't jive with Ibanez or Greco. Butchered or not the angle is not the same. Looking more like a Aria or some variation. Here's the Destroyer rout. Nothing close to this guitar.
  5. Yep. I can't tell if it looks that way because a couple of holes have been widened or if the guy assigned to drilling control cavities that day had too much saki the night before.
  6. Username checks out. That said, there are knowledgeable people here that are quite adept a sniffing out fake or misrepresented guitars. The guitar appears to be an Ibanez or Greco lawsuit era guitar, however the butchered routing toward the toggle switch area does not look like the rout on my Greco EX 800. ( It is essentially an Ibanez Destroyer with the Greco logo marketed in Japan). I can't tell if that rout was altered or if it might be a Hondo version being passed off as an Ibanez. There has been so much damage to the original channel that it is difficult to tell. If it is the real deal, I'd be willing to restore it.
  7. I always confused the names of Chick And Ry Cooder. Probably has something to do with my time in Seoul.
