  1. Per Wikipedia: Cedrela odorata is the most commercially important and widely distributed species in the genus Cedrela. Known as Spanish cedar in English commerce, the aromatic wood is in high demand in the American tropics because it is naturally termite- and rot-resistant. An attractive, moderately lightweight wood (specific gravity 0.4), its primary use is in household articles used to store clothing. Cedro heartwood contains an aromatic and insect-repelling resin that is the source of its popular name, Spanish-cedar (it resembles the aroma of the unrelated true cedars (Cedrus spp.) Ced
  2. Congrats on your NGD!! Godin makes a fine guitar for the price; unfortunately, their resale value mirrors Hamer's..... I have a Godin Core CT P90 and it is a fabulous guitar. It covers so much more territory than most P90-equipped guitars.
  3. Duotones and P90's - a match made in heaven!
  4. I've got a Godin GT P90 with a GraphTech ResoMax NW1 wrapper and I love it. Super comfy, intonates easily, and stays on the posts when changing strings - https://graphtech.com/collections/resomax-bridges-wraparound/products/copy-of-resomax-nw1-wraparound-bridge-chrome
  5. Use nothing but flatwounds on my bass and love the smoother sound they produce. Never used them on guitars though........
  6. I posted my 78 Sunburst in this thread back in 2007 but wanted to keep this thread alive!! Let's keep showing off our vintage Sunbursts....
  7. Glad you found another Black Sunburst, even it it wasn't a '78..... Nice to see it has the crème toggle switch!! Enjoy.
  8. FedEx says "OUT FOR DELIVERY" Yippeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! Now, I have to figure out how to get Steve to sign my copy.
  9. 1978 Sunburst....purchased in 1983-84?? Can't remember exactly.... Sill have it... Restored by BCR in 2003......
  10. I love the information Andrew provides regarding the bigger dots, creme binding, and speed knobs. A question I've always had is when did Hamer transition to the shorter headstock? The reason I ask is because my "supposed" 1978 Sunburst has no serial#(probably due to a repaint) and all the characteristics of a 78 model but has the shorter headstock....
  11. Willie, You are SO correct - Peavey basses are workhorses and under appreciated, witness the current values on used Peavey instruments. I've owned a '94 Peavey Forum Plus bass for years and it was the perfect base (no pun intended) instrument in which I could learn to play the bass. Nice wood, great ergonomics, and nice active pups..... Plus, a price far below the HFC-approved purchase price!! I will be selling it soon because I've moved on to a 2TEK Cruisebass, even though I did try to find a 2TEK-equipped Peavey Axcellerator. No luck..... As much as I love Hamer guitars and basses, I h

  13. 1992 USA Peavey Generation Series 3. Chambered Alder body, flamed maple cap, Bill Lawrence pickups and HAS Sound electronics. A mighty fine, Tele-looking guitar! Just not a Tele.......
