  1. It would have to be my 1995 Hamer Diablo II USA. AFAIK, mine came with a customised push pull pot on the master volume to activate the coil splitting...
  2. Interesting. I always knew the Schaller ones have diecast metal for the baseplates. Never knew the saddles were of the same material as well. Oh well. The diecast metal sounds less high endy and the focus is brought more towards the midrange me thinks... I had to replace the baseplate on mine to a current Schaller LFR. Retrofits down to a T. My original Hamer one has seen better days in terms of being able to keep my saddles in place. One of the screwhole is stripped to oblivion. The new baseplate does have the hardened steel inserts. Shouldn't give me threading problems no more for years to c
  3. Incorrect. Schaller started using the hardened inserts at some point in the 90's (I'm sure someone here knows the exact point). So there are plenty of Hamer-stamped baseplates out there. - Austin If that's true, it must be in the late 90s then. Mine should be around the 1995 mark, as my Hamer Diablo II USA is a 1995 model. The screwholes were stripped. I ordered a brand new Schaller baseplate, and then swapped everything else onto it. Works like a charm now...
  4. They are getting rarer to find indeed. However, if one is not fussed about not having the Hamer logo stamped on the trem itself, the Schaller LFRs should retrofit perfectly...
  5. I just wished he played more creative shit than pandering to the meatbox department...
  6. From what I can tell, Adam's FU Floyd is very similar to the Gotoh Floyd with some features of the OFR. The Gotoh in my Charvel is, IMO, such an improvement in funcionality/machining over other FR models, including OFR/Schaller/Edge trems. I like that the brass block is standard on the Gotoh/FU. The Gotoh block has grooves machined for each spring anchor and the springs are secured with counter-sunk machine screws. Nice feature, though you have to install the springs to the claw in a straight line, so no EVH-style, two-springs in an "A" shape, etc. The FU bridge features the OFR/Schaller, coll
  7. I've spoken to the video owner. He has said that as far as he knows, the pickups are stock Dimarzios. As for your evaluation, it's really hard to tell if it's mostly just volume difference. That's because Youtube video are relatively highly compressed. That being said, pretty much everyone that has heard both guitars, including me, have agreed that the Diablo II USA is the better sounding guitar...
  8. Was your Diablo II USA ever coil splittable??? I've had 2 Diablo II's and I don't believe either one was coil-splittable; although I believe only the 2nd one was stock. - Austin Oh cool. Mine's coil splittable, and the wiring seems stock as well, unless someone actually bothered to rewire everything in the same manner again. Furthermore, I doubt so as I bought it "NOS" from a Hamer dealership... The story with mine is that "she" was my first ever electric guitar. I kinda feel bad sometimes. I was told by the friendly salesperson that there was this local musician that tried her out and real

  10. Those are really nice plus some are the best price point axe's. I think I could find any sound I needed from those. I have been thinking of getting a Tokai Strat Clone. I watched a video of this guy going through all the stops with one of them and it sounded like a typical vintage strat in all of the spectrum clean or with distortion, just the guitar and amp. Not sure if they all sound like that but that one sounded like an early 60's strat to me. On my list. A lot of the 80s Japanese guitars are great, copies or not. For some companies, the earliest stuff were a bit hit or miss. It's usu
