  1. I know of whom you speak. Great guy! My former coworker at the former music emporium downtown. Please tell him hello for me.
  2. Nope, hate 'em. OK, I'm a fan. The '64 SG Jr (thanx, Rodi) and the BCR Jr (thanx, Kiz) are mine. The white Hamer is not. I wish I would have snagged it when it was for sale here a few years back.
  3. I'm a fan. Here's 2 I own and one I wished I would have snagged when it was available a few years back. The '64 SG Jr. and the BCR Jr. (thanks, Kiz) are mine. Unfortunately, the Hamer is not.
  4. Well there's this thing that I bought from one of Don's previous "better than average single cut" sales. Not so LP-like though despite the shape. Has it's own thing going.
  5. I've got an R9. Wasn't looking for one per se, but there it was. This one has a mismatched top as well as a couple of dings from the previous owner. Price was good at the time compared to nicer looking ones. Not the prettiest, but a good player. Kind of like that girl in high school with the unattractive face but a killer bod. It's my only Lester, no better or worse than others I suppose.
  6. No affiliation. Sorry if this one's come up before. Seller calls it an Arch Top Standard "Sunburst". Not a fan of the wood combo & gold hardware, but taste is subjective. https://reverb.com/item/27892968-96-hamer-usa-arch-top-standard-sunburst-1-piece-natural-zebrawood-1-off
  7. 100% to all above. I opened a FedEx account years ago and have had good luck with them. I measure and weigh at home, print my label and drop it off at the FedEx Office place. As others mentioned, UPS Stores are pirates. I’ve had horrible luck with the USPS, particularly since Covid. Haven’t shipped a guitar through them, but in the last 6 months they’ve managed to lose 2 priority mail items I sent as well as one of my Amazon purchases. Amazon made good on it in no time flat, in fact they contacted me. Not a fan of the USPS unless absolutely necessary.
  8. That’s great news, Tom! Best to you!
  9. I was thinking Ventures tribute band but on 2nd thought, Surfaris it is. I also have this Swart thing pictured inbound tomorrow, which should pair well with the green thing. Is the pedal board too much?
  10. Been thinking about getting an Strat type thing for awhile. This one's a used 2019 model and I couldn't find a mark on it. UPS delivered it in the pouring rain. In this area they deliver from a golf cart towing a little trailer. From the looks of it the guitar rode around in the rain for a few blocks. Box was soaked to the bone. All I've done so far is crack the case open, tune it and inspect it. Had to go back to work & looking forward to spending some time with it when I get home.
  11. Greetings I decided to give my poor, neglected SF Vibro Champ some love. Haven't fired it up in ages. Seemed fine the last time I did. So... bought it a new Weber 8A125 speaker and some vintage glass. Gave the grimy tolex a mild cleaning and she looks good. Removed the chassis and pictured is what I see. Note that I am electronically challenged. I knew someone had been inside before but never looked. See the cluster of capacitors glued to the chassis and to each other? The way they're connected? What am I looking at? Looks to me like the work was done by a drunken chimp.
