  1. Nice guitars, especially th 1979 Sunburst. Good prices (for Europe, at least). Gabe 😀 Edited to add: The neck pickup of the Sunburst appears to be the wrong way around, normal the black bobbin would be nearer to the bridge. Peter Green mod?
  2. A lot of the stuff you have put online has been useful, not only to me, but I am sure to a lot of Hamer fans! Thanks again! Gabe 😀
  3. Very nice. Especially the pickups and the fact that the f-hole is bound are important assets to this guitar (IMHO). Gabe 😀
  4. This the "Irma" guitar, 2007 Talladega Aztec Gold, with a bound neck. It has Kinman P-90 Buckers. The guitar is called "Irma"as I bought it in the beginning of September 2017 from ArnieZ. It was shipped and a few days later hurricane Irma hit our paradise island (Sint Maarten) very hard. I was not sure where the guitar was at that moment, there was no electricity, no water, no internet. Later I could follow the "track and trace" and see that it went back and forth between Florida and Puerto Rico (which had been hit really hard by hurricane Maria right after Irma). Then a month later, while the "track and trace" was still bouncing around, the guitar was delivered to me, fully intact and beautiful. So I am a happy man, and this is how the guitar got its name. Gabe ?
  5. Too many guitars, not enough talent. Actually no talent. But I like it. At this moment I am at 7: - 1979 Hamer Sunburst Honey - 1986 Ibanez GB-10 Brown sunburst (or jazzburst?) - 2004 Fender CS 50th Anniversary '54 Stratocaster MB Two-tone sunburst - 2005 Fender CS '59 Esquire Vintage blonde - 2007 Hamer Talladega Aztec gold (The "Irma" guitar) - Crafter JE24 Natural - Tanglewood TW28 dlx 12-string Natural - And a Fender Ukulele! Gabe ?
  6. But what about amps? Or effects pedals? Or the newest digital device? Etc? ?
  7. Newport’s are great, but for A “classic” jazz sound an Ibanez GB10 is better, and easier to handle than a Gibson L5. Oh, do not forget to put on flatwound strings. Gabe ?
  8. Should that not read "Electraglides"? Gabe ?
  9. In the 1990ies this model was called an Archtop GT, in the 2000's it was called a Studio GT. As it is a 2002 I would call it a Studio.. But in principle it is exactly the same model, maybe the necks of the Archtops are somewhat thinner. Great guitar! Gabe ?
  10. Hi Jimbo. Welcome to the HFC! And learn to do your own setups, it is not that difficult. Gabe ?
  11. But how do you pronounce that when Billy is in front of it? Gabe ?
  12. So now I am even more happy to own 2 ash guitars: - Stratocaster (2004 Fender CS 50th anniversary Two-tone sunburst) - Telecaster (2005 Fender CS '59 Esquire Vintage blonde). Gabe ?
