  1. I agree with Gorch, but I understand how many feel "certain" builders and emps made for a special time during the later years. To be honest, as well as the New Hartford guitars were made, I wasn't impressed with either of the 2 later Standards I owned only because they felt nothing like a 4 digit neck . For me that was everything. Things change. Off topic, I totally understood Jol's philosophy of wanting to move forward and come up with different designs etc. What a man builds during his 30-40's is likely not to his tastes into his 50-60's . What I will never get is while cer
  2. Looks like a monaco, a tally and whatever the F hole model is... I saw no flat top sunbursts , standards, birds, or virts , SO I have no real interest, but who knows what the plan is , but yes Hamer USA is back in some incarnation, this was in the works already when I posted the last time. I asked my friend if there were any former emps or namesakes involved and I haven't heard back, but I'd guess no. The Washburn stuff that Grover Jackson did with them back in the mid 90's was top notch, other than silly headstocks... I had a bunch of the Laredo's and they all were well
  3. I guess my source a while back was right, as here are some one off USA Hamers at the ILL factory...
  4. It's called Karma... You guys did many great things for a good many people and that will eventually come back to each of you. I'm still sick over the loss of Hamer as a brand, it makes me dislike FMIC all the more, when you actually begin to think about the folks it affects, especially having picked up stakes from ILL. One door closes, rest assured another will open. Best to all of you guys !
  5. Almost makes you want to cry ,Fender getting their grubby mitts on Hamer.
  6. Yep just like it... There was a cool limba backed one on ebay for a few months, it finally sold..beautimus !
  7. The late 80's Chandler stuff is FANTASTIC ! So under rated and under valued . I'd love to have a 90's Telepathic !!!!
  8. Man time flies...Seems like just yesterday that I picked up my first 2104 combo... R.I.P. Mr. Marshall, and a big thanks for making my playing days a memorabal one.
  9. I'll bite..... maybe you can get further with jol than I did... '77 sunburst reissued to the letter... I tried to get this to happen for the 30th anniversary of the sunburst, limited to 30 guitars...but there was no interest in doing so on hamers part... if you can make it happen, put me down for one.
  10. wow, I believe you may have out done your self greg..
  11. I am sure this has been covered during the replies here, but my take on terrible hamer resale over the years has been the lack of 100% original hamer design ideas. thats not to say that other brands are devoid of copped fender/gibson ideas, but if you look at the hamer catalogs one theme keeps repeating over and over and that theme is the lp jr. call it an artist, give it a numerical designation, its still the sunburst/special of old with an exotic fancy wood top, new inlays or pickup configuration. granted this has been a proven seller for them, but how many ways can you reinvent the mouse t
