  1. I was a fellow product manager at Kaman Music. I traded a Black Pearl guitar amp for the Talladega with the Hamer product manager. My Tally is very early. It is possibly the first one made. And yes, it was too bright indeed. I don't like bright guitars at all which lead me to swapping out the pickups. I have a '59 in the neck and a Pearly Gates in the bridge.
  2. Interesting. Mine isn't "snug" in my Newport case.
  3. Well.....and there it is. That's awesome...thanks. As I posted, I have a Newport case. I guess that will be as close as I can get. I still do business with the OEM that made the cases, so I can order an additional one from him. Thanks all for the assist with this.
  4. The Newport case has a little side to side play at the lower bout. I have a Newport P90 and tried that case. It will certainly work in a pinch.
  5. Thanks for the quick reply Travis. The particular Tele case I have doesn't work. It won't accommodate the neck heel. Your Shecter tip is worth a look. Thanks agian.
  6. Greetings all and Happy Holidays. Does anyone know what hard case is available these days that would fit a Talladega? Or, does anyone have an original they'd care to sell?
  7. Kept it with the four-way. From rear to front it goes: bridge pup, both pups parallel, neck pup, both pups in series.
  8. My second post with the picture isn't showing?
  9. Very nice. I have the magazine-review Talladega. It's my number 1 guitar. I switched out the pups though- I put a '59 in the neck and a Pearly Gates in the bridge. Both with zebra bobbins.

  11. Certainly. I was the Genz Benz (amplifiers) product manager years back and I worked in the marketing department along with the Hamer product manager. He wanted a guitar amp I developed (Black Pearl) and I suggested the trade. He agreed as long as I would wait for the guitar to come back from a magazine-review tour. This may be the first one made but I don't know for certain. I also came up with the name "Newport" for this series of guitars. I came up with the name Phat Cat for the pickups on the standard Newport. I didn't come up with the "Ph" spelling for "Fat" though.
  12. That's what I garnished from reading a couple of other posts here. I can't find them for sale either at Reverb etc.
