  1. The Country Music Hall of Fame is laid out better than the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
  2. Uh, guys, the sticker can be replaced with a better sticker. Does anyone still have a Dean Markley sticker sitting around?
  3. ...and as many more as you can find as with all Hamers. This is a great HFC story for sure!
  4. Those replacement parts like pots and jacks may have been primarily intended for people looking to upgrade import guitars. When Seymour Duncan did guitar clinics to show what a difference changing pickups could make he would do a before and after demonstration of a mid priced guitar. More than once it has been suggested that changing the pots in a Chinese guitar will make a difference. It should be expected that American made guitars do not need such an upgrade.
  5. Plating can be better on some jacks. Since the electrons flow on the surface that could have an effect. How well the jack grips the plug is another design consideration. However... most of those classic recordings with the perfect guitar tones were made using whatever came from the guitar factories with cables that were just regular guitar cables made long before they became boutique items. Does anyone "upgrade" their 1963 Stratocaster with all original parts? Do they brag about the sound of it? Is your 1968 ES-335 the greatest guitar ever made except for that crappy to
  6. Maybe someone thought if they made a guitar look like it came from Star Wars their kid would practice more.
  7. Maybe I should put up my korina Vector and Standard as a pair for trade. I want ten acres and a 2000 square foot house with a new HVAC system and newly serviced septic tank and leach field.
  8. Oh, come on, man! Korina Vectors just aren't quite that high yet, but they are getting close to that.
  9. The most I ever paid was $2600 for a 1951 Gibson L-7C more than 25 years ago. That guitar would go for around $5600 now. I would love to have it back. My 8 string Chaparral bass is the highest priced new instrument I ever bought.
  10. Being used to the more full looking boomers, the look of those inlays on the ESP does not look right.
  11. That bass is as functional as this:
  12. Somewhere out there is a guy who can play that bass like a virtuoso that will be set up in a NAMM booth.
  13. Jason Becker has got an iron will to make the most of life. You have to admire that guy.
  14. In the 90s it was my understanding that the USA factory was limited in how many instruments they could spray with finish each day. The Mexican factory was able to spray more instruments.
  15. The alternate KISS logo only gets used in Germany.
  16. You wanna loan yer amp, man? Those Pro Jr amps are cool. Mine is not going anywhere soon. Your mods are all good choices, and it would be fun to hear your amp side by side with a stock Pro Jr. You started off with a great amp, so it has to be even better.
  17. Supposedly the 5 neck Hamer is not as heavy as expected.
  18. Churches have had this weird pattern of having the PA mixer in a separate room. Sometimes there is a booth or a room with a glass for someone to see through, but some churches have had the mixer in a separate room with no connection to the main sanctuary or performance area at all. If some of these church leaders think that God does not like the sight of a mixer in the same room where someone holds a microphone while preaching and praying then they need to show where that is commanded in the Bible. Installers from the store where I worked would tell the church people that the mixer needs to
  19. Back around 1979 or 1980 an older friend said Aerosmith was his favorite band until he saw them a couple of years earlier. They were so bad that he left the show early.
  20. Alex Chilton did a solo show at the Cotton Club in Atlanta. If you did not know he had been successful before you would have never guessed it. He was bumming cigarettes from the stage. He was just going through the songs. Nothing really stood out. Maybe I just saw him on a bad night. The second and third times seeing Ratt were a little worse each time. When Stephen Pearcy explained that dates were added to a tour, and that we were lucky they played a show for us because they were ready to go home, my thought was they were lucky they had fans showing up. Back then Pearcy talked dow
