  1. https://reverb.com/item/33659870-hamer-californian-double-neck-electric-guitar-in-red-sparkle-with-case Weights only 13 pounds.
  2. I have on from 2007, and it has a small tendency. I wouldn't call it neck dive, it's more like the balanced position is closer to the first image than to the second: Best guitar I've ever owned.
  3. Spectrum? You'll be amazed with the Amstrad 286 speed
  4. Yes - Close to the Edge Mike Oldfield - Platinum And side 2 of Pink Floyd's Meddle too
  5. Very cool guitar, original but pleasant to see. And Priest + Maiden for the first concert, great start.
  6. Wow, nice grain and color. Looks much better on your pic.
  7. I'm starting to remember why I haven't played that thing in years. On the other hand, no neck dive on this one.
  8. Yes, standard tele body using 1 mm steel sheets (1/25 ' if that makes any sense). Weights 11 lb, heavy but still usable.
  9. Was Jol on vacation when you ordered that one? Incredible guitar, by the way

  11. Very cool! Maybe a bit harsh in the highs of some of them? Could be the youtube audio. Great job anyway!
  12. Thanks to everyone! Yes, the Artist was a custom order from 2007, with ebony fingerboard and and crown inlays. I bought to the original owner, who said to me that he liked the 25th anniversary one, but ordered this way because he didn't truly believe he can customize it. I think he nailed it, it does not have a flametop like others I have seen, but I like the simple look it has. A closest photo of the fingerboard, I think it matches great with the red color. As we say in spanish, it's darker than a cricket's armpit 😄: The Chaparral is from 1989, and was nearly NOS. I didn't know that when I bought, the photos on the add were a bit blurry - I was lucky on that one.
  13. Hi, I'm new here, I registered a few months ago but didn't write until now. My english is not very good, so I read more than I write. I knew Hamer by chance, after some years playing bass I returned to guitar and started looking for a guitar locally. Someone was selling an Artist, so I search for some info and ended here in this forum and was convinced. I finally bought the guitar and was greatly impressed by the quality and the sound: Some months later I found a good deal on a Chaparral, so the family grew a little more. Is also and incredible instrument, both clean and in thrasher mode. I found amazing that Hamer gets so little attention, but I suppose is better for us 😁. Now I'm getting some serious GAS about a bass, and yesterday almost bought a B12L, but I though it was too pricey and let it pass. I know one day I will get one. I'm happy I found this forum, I like the atmosphere and humour I'm seeing here.
