  1. well Mr hamerhead has all this nonsense helped you make a choice?
  2. Other than prrrrrfect what is that? hubba hubba bubs. caddie🍻
  3. Why? What sound are you looking for grasshopper? That sound is between your ears Tim. Lord knows there's plenty of space up there for all kinds of new and exciting sounds.😄 Newport or Monaco - consistant quality, hardware, wood, finish. For all the reasons we own too many Hamers (by ATF regulation) and why this discussion board still exists. Gibson ES-125 (the George Thorogood guitar) well if you absolutely do not want to go with a Hamer. If this Gibby is good enough for Thorogood, its good enough for me. Epiphone Sheraton (the John Lee Hooker guitar although i've seen pictures of him with an LP, and plenty of different Gibson hollow bodies) Gibson Byrdland (the Irrepressible Ted Gonzo Nugent guitar) Gibson ES-335 (the Alvin Lee - Ten Years After guitarist. Seems like every blues player ever has been photographed with a Gibson ES-335 slung over his shoulder or the Epi Sheraton. Personally I don't think you can beat a Hamer Newport or Monaco. pickups? - Pick whatever you want & load 'em up Cheers🍻🚀💥 caddie Nobody can kill Hamer, even the mighty Fender Musical Instrument Company could neither drive a 3 piece mahogany neck thru the Hamer USA headstock nor a quarter sawed brazilion rosewood fretboard WITH frets installed up its f-hole. So bring it on guitar fools, ya better get a bigger gun we're not dead yet! I don't know...don't ask questions like that...I came across it I thought I'd share it. How does a dude get a cameltoe? Some things you just can't un-see
  4. starting 1 on the far left my money is on 6. 4 is wild! Beautiful but not for this body,🍻😎
  5. Like geese migrating back north? Geese.... tearing up golf courses worse than gophers? soooo many choices, very difficult to pick just one. Judge Shmaies driving up sees a flagpole disappear blowing up Bushwood gopher bites Spacklers finger McFiddish getting orders from the Judge McFiddish giving orders to Spackler oh so many good choices. If it rains today, it'll be a Caddyshack Directors cut day. I'm Only Happy when it Rains.
  6. I'm not sure we can even make deals with people in Canadia. Doesn't selling & shipping a Hamer USA into Canadia violate NAFTA?
  7. Not gonna happen Willie. There's too much money to be shoveled up. Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles will be competing for highest price tag on the face of the ticket. Could we see the first 4 digit crowned & bound ticket price. Plenty of people out there willing to pay thousands to see Hell Freezes Over Tour Version 3. Same goes for Fleetwood Mac. Ya don't get Michael Campbell & Neil Finn to sign on for non-soldout venues. Same goes for Vince Gill and the Eagles. Although there's only one original Eagle left on the stage. Same goes for the Stones, wasn't the Voodoo Lounge Tour supposed to be their Farewell Tour. Who is The Who now? 2 deaf guys and some hired guns shoveling up the cash as fast as they can. Saw McCartney a couple years ago. He didn't play "Saw Her Standin' There". Now how can you go out on tour riding the legend of the Beatles and not play "saw her standin there" arguably the best R&R tune ever. Lotsa people walking to their cars shaking their heads back n forth overheard saying things like "did I miss him playing "'stsndin there while i was in the restroom" Nope. "Did I miss it when I went out for a beer and a brat" Nope, he didnt play it. "WTF? Yer shittin' me" Nope. "Ya mean I paid $160 for me & Maureen to sit in the nose bleed section NB seats 43 & 44 and he doesn't even play their best song" Yep, ya did. "I'm never gonna pay up to see that a-hole again. But when he comes around 2 or 3 years from now. Deja vu. you'll be sitting in that same seat(Section NB, Seat 43) for a lot more dough. Why? cuz he's a Beatle, dude. We gotta go see him. And his voice is noticeably a little teenie, tiny bit weaker. And ya notice there's a 2nd bass player tucked back next to the piano that is painted like a yellow submarine. You go to see Crosby Stills & Nash, you'll be sitting in NB-43 having Deja Vu and guess what? They don't play Deja Vu. But you already knew that was gonna happen cuz you feel like you been there before. What rabbit hole did we fall into? hole# NB-43. So the next day you Almost Cut Your Hair. You just drove past Great Clips then went to the hookah bar between the 7/11 and the dry cleaner and had some kind of mushroom. Scottie, E & Erd, WTF just happened..... again. Over the stadium PA comes the voice of Rod Serling "see you next year in......The Twilight Zone" Cheers! caddie
  8. Seems like the problem is me. I read an interview with Joe Walsh a few days ago. He said that he will not play a guitar with strings that do not line up with the center of the pup pole pieces. Perhaps Joe did a little too much "coke, dope, smoke" as an Eagle. I paid a little more attention to my faves. a VintS with 3 SD Cool rails, a Strat Plus Deluxe with 3 Gold Lace Sensor pups, an Eclipse with mini hums with no visible pole pieces a Duotone with conventional hums, and a Studio with hums. They all sound great centered over the poles or not. So like my Dad (RIP) said " Son, if it ain't broke don't fix it." Thanks Dad for pulling me back from the cliff. "Here's a nice frosty Hamm's. Dad Cubs still losing? From the land of sky blue waters Hamm's the beer refreshing. Haaaamms! Cheers Dad. caddie
  9. I have a Studio and have seen this on other Studios, Specials, Artists and Duotones. The strings don't line up with the center of the pickup pole pieces. Do I see a problem that is not really a problem Is this poor pickup mounting poor nut cutting poor bridge saddle cutting all or some of the above should I take it to my certified luthier for diagnosis and treatment befuddled at Latitude: 41.86530233391187 Longitude:-88.10165047645569 caddie
  10. Just think of them as another serial number. Beer rings are to Shishikovs as Hameritis is to Hamers. A birthmark of authenticity.
  11. Dig dem Wild Ca-Ray-Zee boomers! Well done grasshopper, well done.
  12. What's the man looking for?!! Like the man said, new Hamers! fer Cripes sake. I know you can read... c spot run. Oh golly I'm hot today!
