  1. Am in Canada and wish to unload Hamers and other guitars. Send me a private message.
  2. I still prize it to this day What Explorers?
  3. Mane! So much stuff I completely forgot about. I now remember that meeting but I don't remember the guitar at all!!
  4. Wow thanks for the warm welcome. Many familiar names but I have terrible memory. Rockola, I had forgotten about the dildo and the dimarzio. Was it a pay it forward? For what project? Zorrow, I stopped about 2-3 years ago, have we met? Tom I remember you as a very kind mustachioed gentleman. Did you sell me a Deluxe Reverb or a Princeton or something? Did I sell you something? Brooks, the handle is familiar but I don't remember much, help! Chris, you owe me a blueburst Standard, or was that your brother's? Was I lusting after a cool red Proto too? Is Peter still around? I'm extremely lazy but I hope to get around to list some guitars (Chap Custom, OG Cruise Bass, graphic Blitz I-6, 2 Phantom A5s SBT, Phantom GT, BC Rich Ironbird snakeskin ) For a non American the online gear marketplace is looking pretty bleak, what with the crazy shipping prices, ebay's fees & subsequent demise, CITES etc. Is US Fish & Wildlife still intercepting guitars with MOP inlays going cross border? I understand the rosewood ban is being lifted this week. Any other problematic common guitar woods like ebony, korina etc?
  5. Both my black standards, one custom and one mahogany, were lowly six-digits.
  6. Howdy, Long time to no post. Lost GAS 7 years ago and have not bought or sold anything or visited any gear-related sites since. I want to unload a ton of cool crap I've been hoarding, some of it somewhat obscure, with limited/no local appeal.. such as kewl Hamer guitars. I don't know what anything is worth anymore. Are the Reverb sold listings the only resource left? I get the feeling that the original asking prices they show in the "accepts offers" listings are nowhere near what most of those guitars must have sold for (eg. 1,800 for a Kahler Phantom A5, 1,500 for a 90s Special FM). Is this forum still a viable selling option for Hamer stuff? Any other forums still happening like TGP etc? Thanks!
  7. I'm replacing my tank because something is shorting out in the tank when the console is horizontal (it had been placed on its side for the past 6+ years). Gravity seems to be the cause. If I lift one side and tilt it past a certain angle it works. I can send it to you if it can be of help.

  9. dgstandard's can't drive 55 black standard
  10. At a time when "boutique", "vos", "relic", "roadworn", "r9", "master built", "hand wired" became guitar terms, and well before the hipster movement/white stripes/resurgence of old department store guitars, these guys came up with a guitar built like the danelectro amp-in-case guitars of the 60s, looking nothing like a danelecto amp-in-case or any other guitar for that matter, introduced some crazy finish materials, and paired them with strat necks with imo the best non-lawsuit fender-inspired headstock. And they sold direct from their then-excellent website. Next-level shit all around.
  11. I'm convinced the current Reverends are as good, if not better than the old USA line. They just lost the charm and individuality of the USA line. Just like those half-assed Eastwood "reissues" of Supro/Airline fiberglass guitars made of mahogany (i.e. nato) with bullshit tuneamatic bridges and covered humbuckers that play, feel and sound the same as a Les Paul copy, they capture absolutely none of the vibe of the original. Part of the brilliance of the USA Reverend line was how easily and cheaply they made these cool, unique guitars (e.g. no paint spraying)
  12. Remember when you could go on the reverend website, choose a color, pickups, hardtail or bigsby etc., pay $579 and you'd get a cool as shit instrument assembled in Michigan unlike anything else on the market? Their current guitars are such a boner killer. Just the same tired guitars that everybody else is peddling, just shaped a little differently.
  13. Cynic, Your post is like a waiter telling a patron that left a small tip that he didn't tip enough. Sometime around 2004 or so, HFCer rjoseph33 put the word out that there's a mahogany Standard in a local pawshop priced at the HFC "special" ($350) which he offered to get for a HFC broseph33, in case anyone was interested. Edgar Alan Poe (the HFC member) was first to take him up on this offer. I was one of the 20-odd runners up. About a year or so later, he had a big Hamer sell-off to fund a new Baker and put it up for sale here at the then HFC "standard" price ($900) for a 2-piece STDMAH. I bought it and enjoyed that guitar immensely until Sir Dan did the unthinkable and put BlackBart up for sale. An ebay $1 NR auction netted me $1100 - from a HFC heavyweight coincidentally. Brent is the best thing that happened to the used Hamer market since the big dogs (like the one who bought the aforementioned STDMAH) stopped playing. Y U B actin' like a brother done did somethin' wrong cause he got his game tight?
  14. You had the chance to buy them and you didn't................... Do you still sleep at night ? i also had the chance to, and he didn't want any money from me. difficult to explain my decision, i'm still conflicted about it
  15. steve matthes' blue burst standard steve matthes' red proto
  16. How old were you in 79? It was an amazing year for music. 154, the b-52s, singles going steady, entertainment! etc are some of my all time favorites. But how does any year compete against Revolver, Pet Sounds, Blonde on Blonde, Aftermath (UK version is my favorite stones record), Freak Out!, Black Monk Time and the Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators? Ridiculous year
  17. so what kind of filter caps do you guys buy for your non-marshall vintage amps? no-name or f&t/ce/sprague atom etc
  18. I'm talking about high voltage filter caps for tube amps. Beyond spending extra for considerations such as preserving the original look, has anyone noticed an actual difference in quality between brand name and no name caps? For example, a F&T 47uf @ 500 v axial cap is sold for around $10. For that money I can get 10 generic Chinese caps. We're talking about filtering out noise here, not tone, so I think durability would be the main criterion. I don't mind spending extra if they're actually going to make a difference, I just have not noticed one.
  19. So the Japanese pickups are in fact Maxons from 1975. Of some value to the lawsuit Ibanez, Greco, Matsumoku crowd. Thanks Turdus! Regarding the 3 screws on one side, 1 on the other.. I've not been able to find anything about a Dimarzio/Guild "M-series". Got more details, Jay? Peter, are there any particular guitars such Mighty Mites are associated with?
  20. velorush - 80s dimarzios had triangular feet, i think
  21. wow! thanks for the great insight. I've never seen a seymour duncan pickup that wasn't high gloss, but then again I don't think I've ever seen a SD older than about 1989. The top right pickup is 2-conductor and is not high gloss. One more question: I have two creme Dimarzio Super Distortions, both with square feet. One is a 2-conductor braided w/ a darker, dull baseplate (pitted?), the other is a 4-conductor. Can you date them more accurately than "from the 70's"?
