  1. http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issu...p_End_Game.aspx Good to see he's still in the game, not that I had any doubts.
  2. I'll play. Consider a Martin OM-21. One of the great sleepers of the Martin lineup. Although it is a EIR/Sitka guitar, it has a sunnier disposition than, say a 000-28, or even an OM-28. Very lightly appointed, tort. binding, no purfling, small dots on fretboard. Full Nitro finish. 1 3/4" neck is great for fingerpicking, but don't let that fool you, this guitar strums very well and can even hold its own in the flatpicking department. Swap out the stock tuners for some decent open backs and your in business. And the best part, is they go for around $1200-1300 used and right around $2K new, so your seeing substantial savings over your quoted $3K.
  3. Hamer eclipse. One piece mahogany body, mine has SD Antiquity Firebird pups and sounds great and is super comfortable to play. Here's a couple of shots to give you a sense of what it looks like.
  4. While not quite as pronounced as the chap, the combo of the belly bevel and forearm cut on my eclipse makes it super comfortable to play. Sorry, no pics at the moment.
  5. I'm with you, I could never get over the vocals enough to give them a serious listen.
  6. I'm not worried about the chaps, not really into the whole shredder thing anywhoo. However, I can see something in the single cut style making its way to me at some point in the future.
  7. So, I got my first Hamer a few weeks ago. Some of you may have seen my post where I sent my Phantom Custom down to BCR Greg to make it right. It is now my favorite guitar by far, and I knew I had found grail that noone else knows about. Well, sure enough, sold off a guitar today and am now waiting for my second Hamer. Some of you may have seen the eclipse for sale on TGP. Well, it should be mine within the next week or so. Can't wait. I am a Martin player first and foremost, and these Hamer's seem like the same deal to me, a loyal following of the people in the know who spend all of their extra cash on that next gotta have piece. Anyway, will post pics when it gets here. Have a great weekend all, Greg
  8. Welcome from another newbie. Nice guitar, nice tones. Enjoy her in good health.
