  1. Hello, about 3 years ago you expressed an interest in my 4 digit should I ever decide to sell. Well that time may have arrived. Best way to reach me is email. Ejboquist@comcast.net.




  2. I never buy based on the look of a guitar. Having said that I have a couple of nice flame tops on my L.P. and on a couple of Hamers but I don't have them because they look good. TBH I was put off a lot of flame/curly tops when the photoflame thing happened and it was hard to tell if it was a real top or just painted on.
  3. Congratulations on the end to an epic quest. A real beauty, it must sound and play really well, guitars with that sort of wear have usually been played a lot plus you wont have to be worried about taking to a gig.
  4. Nice case. The problem with cases designed for L.P's is they're too deep for the slim-bodied Sunbursts and need adjustment to the neck support (as you mention) or the neck will not lay flat and the case lid will hit it and push it down as the lid closes, not ideal. Seems to be a problem with a lot of Gibson cases as I had the same issue with a couple of Gibson Flying V case's.
  5. $90 bucks Ex P&P, it's not going to get any cheaper than this for a new case. If I had a bit more space I'd be tempted to buy one as a spare. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hamer-Guitar-Case/331395412431?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27538%26meid%3D6c2fd69672744541b449aa0604ea2d0a%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D11353%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D331416930314&rt=nc
  6. Check the For sale section there's a link there to someone selling new Hamer cases that would be perfect.
  7. Really hard to tell but I would say the tuners are too new, the TRC is not laminated, the bridge should be a bad ass (but I wouldn't swear to it) and the S/N looks like the wrong font (have to check more closely) and is it a coincidence that the SN starts with 79. It looks more like it was made in 1989 or 99, could it have been mis-numbered as it came off the line or an employees guitar ? Do you have a link to the thread on the B.C Rich site please ?
  8. Looks real enough to me. Maybe he thinks it'll make more money than a Gibson or that it will encourage bargain hunters to bid thinking they know something the seller doesn't..
  9. Got to say I prefer the way it hangs with button on the horn at the moment (and I think it looks better there) but I still haven't made my mind up totally on having a Burst or a colour (White or Black) yet. Probably just going to go with the flow man.....................
  10. OK just did a side by side comparison as one of my Standards has the button in the back of the neck and the other is on the top horn, the same strap was used for both. The guitar with the button on the top horn does tend to neck dive a little more than the Standard Standard (button on the back of the neck), it's not exactly a plummet to the floor though just a slight downwards movement (and it actually drops into a good playing position for me so this will depend a lot on where you like to wear your guitar). Although the button on the back doesn't dive as much (if any) it does makes the top of
  11. There is one advantage to having the strap button on the body/horn if you use straplocks then you can interchange the straps easily otherwise you need different straps for different guitars due to the twist the strap has to make to attach on the back of the neck. Not sure if it affects the balance in any way I'll check and report back. Wherever you put it make sure it has a strap locking device of some sort, Mike, you should list them as an option if You're not fitting them as standard.
  12. I'm old enough to remember when Dimarzio started selling replacement pickups in the 70's and in my yoof went through a phase of checking out what was available, (at that time I think I had an Ibanez L.P. Copy) PAF and Superdistortion models were about it at the time and the difference between them and stock P/U's was easily discernible. Also had an old Strat (not sure how old it was but it was a 4 bolt neck) I swapped out the "nasty old" pick ups for a set of Dimarzio SDS1 (?). I recall taking the covers off the old PU's and looking at the coils which (to my eyes then) seemed to only have bee
  13. ^^What he said. So glad I don't need guitars with trems/shredders. Anyone here score this ?
  14. They are...that's how it was when i purchased it. I even have the case candy that came with it. Mind you, that was just a sticker... I knew the owner of the shop who sold it so I am positive I am the 1st owner. (The shop closed several years ago, the owner deceased). That shop had the dealership. As far as I know only 2 Hamers were sold in/around my town prior to 1980. This one and a sunburst dotneck. The dotneck did have different knobs though. Maybe it has to do with the fact that mine has crown inlays and bindings, i.e is a more expensive one? I think Chris was answering Hanspanzers earlie
