    My "Last" new Hamer

    Sounds like you've been reading Viz! I thought it was spelled 'Fnarr', though.
  2. They shoulda named it after Gram Parsons.

  4. It depends...it's very popular for furniture because of it's good looks and durability, ditto for gun stocks. It's easy to work as well. Any High School with a wood shop probably churns out walnut gun racks by the dozen every year...mainly because it doesn't take much effort or talent to make 'em. Don't forget about nuts, especially for fall/winter cooking/baking...a tree that gets cut down for wood won't produce any.

    Joe Perry in Bad Shape

    +1! Paramedics don't intubate if you ARE breathing, that's for sure.

    B3 Vintage Show a Bust

    I think that's been happening for awhile. Anybody remember The Great Recession? It's like what cmatthes is saying...especially with the Internet being what it is nowadays, why bother with physically showing up at a guitar show with gear to sell, or shopping to buy at a guitar show for gear nowadays? I know I don't, I haven't been to one in over twenty years, and I have no urge to go to one anytime soon. It's just another layer of middlemen to avoid.

    Damn you Johnny B!

    I dunno about that, I really dig the Marina Blue color on yours, it's like a slightly lighter (and nicer) shade of Lake Placid Blue!

    Damn you Johnny B!

    A P-90 in a Tele is killer, congrats on the snag! I couldn't resist getting this one (Lollar in the back, TysonTone in the front)...sorry that the indoor lighting kinda washes out the color, it's Daphne Blue: And as we all know, blue guitars sound better.
  9. Remember school? And peer pressure? And keeping up with the Joneses? It's still around. Now that the economy isn't in the toilet like it was ten years ago, you can bet that someone somewhere is feeling deprived because they don't have someone grocery shopping for them at Wal-Mart or some other store; or even better/worse, not having their groceries delivered to their home, or not having a gourmet meal subscription service, or not trying to beat a bunch of strangers on their Peloton exercycle, or not getting a Lexus with a big red bow on it for Christmas, just like the commercials. That's why I like being a grumpy old curmudgeon, above all else, it don't cost nuthin'. I'm so out of touch, I just found out today that Slash has his own signature Gibson Firebird...and the only thing I want to do about it is question why it was necessary for Gibson and Slash to do that at all.
  10. The search function here on the board seems to work well for this topic, I'm sure there's probably more of these archived, but this one gives a couple of options; either the Switchcraft 151, or Switchcraft 152B if you want the extra ring connection of the stereo jack:
  11. DGS has a '80 V2 in natural (no affiliation), it's been sitting there for at least several months: https://davesguitar.com/products/gibson/flying-v2-80/
  12. It's back up on the website...maybe they made an error when they first posted it, or maybe a buyer backed out. Whatever, it's there now: https://davesguitar.com/products/hamer/artist-mahogany-01/

    Happy Birthday Mike

    Happy Belated Birthday, Mike!
  14. Be thankful the new ones don't have a 'harmonica' bridge.
  15. Dang, that was fast, even for a USA Hamer!
