  1. I am not sure about the color but will let it be discussed when it's arrived. More than often it's difficult to decide between amberburst and 59 burst, depending on bad lighting on those pics. To me, it is looking more like 59 due to more red, but we'll see when I can have a look at it personally. Momentarily, it's got its second trackingnr., which means, it’s on its way from Erlanger, KY, to Europe, yeah!
  2. Thanks, Crunchee! It's a family member, now. My 1st transatlantic purchase, again, after CITES 's finally given up. Hopefully, the Super should arrive hre around the 1st week of January. Happy New Year – to you, too 😉 In case you were one of the other 6 bidders: I'll not get it as dirt cheap as it looks. Ebay Global shipment, paypal xchange rates and, finally, import tax/fees add up to a good 2/3 upon the buying price...
  3. Seems like a good idea to withdraw & keeping it! Over on TPG there are some threads about early Schecters and a couple of knowledgeful members foxyguitars and superrock. See this one for example: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/early-schecter-van-nuys-history-pt-3.1729247/
  4. ...my shortcut in my brain was the other way round: I was wondering, when and why (luthier) Ian A. would have cooperated with Hamer to get his name on the headstock. LOL.
  5. Those of you in the US in need (or: just lust) for a stellar amp, dare having a look at ebay. Isn't that too good to be true? (No affiliation, use appropriate judgement if interested) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Komet-Songwriter-30/123938923207?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D40735%26meid%3D2ca9319046a448ab87b56a6237d5ed75%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D123938923207%26itm%3D123938923207%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507
  6. My 07 Talladega weighs in at xactly 3497 grams/7,707 pounds. The 08 Tally Pro is 3495 grams, so these were pretty consistent in weight (and beauty). But I don't know, if they count: both are Amber burst....😎
  7. Let me assist: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hamer-e-gitarre-airbrush-von-jim-o-connor/1176671591-74-22665 https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/1979-hamer-usa-sunburst-bound-and-crowned-custom-incl-case/1175382879-74-7580 without any pics this time Both have been up more often. And a Scarab, more reasonable priced, on regular ebay and in Kleinanzeigen, too: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Hamer-USA-Scarab-1985-Gibson-Strings-Rare-Vintage-Explorer-Floyd-Rose-Schaller/254312824438?hash=item3b3639be76:g:xVEAAOSwlbZdPYS3 Later on you'll find a Diablo and a Duotone, also.
  8. Congrats on your chops and gear, esp. the Komet. Someone once said, it 'd be a spiritual experience playing a Komet. I would agree to that, I have a pretty early K60 from 10/2000, too. Very usable with a Fryette Powerstation II...
  9. If you've skipped it, someone else must 've snagged it. Me not, too. 😉 I have an SSH ABM trem-one.
  10. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hamer-usa-gitarre/1155603015-74-10632 No aff., as usual. That's a HSS-Versinon with FR at a verygood price imho. But be careful, a lot of scammers there, lately!
  11. The timbers on those early/mid-90ies Sunbursts are extremely purdy, figured and deep. The later Talladegas and Monacos manage to come close, sometimes.
  12. For those familiar with millimeters: Thickness 1. fret: 21 mm 12. fret: 21 mm Width: 1. fret: 43,3 mm 12. fret: 52,4 mm Form: flat C And lots & lots of B'eyes per mm2 Hope, that helps!
  13. ...and a little less flame `n´ eyes than the Reverb one.
  14. Was it one of you first 6 viewers w/in 21 min. of this thread, that made an offer? Good luck 😉
  15. A really convincing beauty on reverb. Even a little badder than mine. https://reverb.com/item/25197975-hamer-vintage-s-w-amber-burst-finish-pre-owned-1992?utm_source=MarketingCloud&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Transactional+-+Saved+Search+Digest+Feed+Content Hell yeah, 1992 must have been a gorgeous year...
  16. Or you're gonna purchase THIS: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hamer-made-81-original-prototyp-vintage-e-gitarre/1135954479-74-3343 Not mine, no affiliation. But there is still a whole, quirky guitar around the ring 😉 Good price, though!
  17. Hm, me thinks he mumbled Holy Grail. These would be the ones, everybody's been talking about for ages, no?

    I'm glad to read this. And being well educated, first hand. And feeling comfortable again. In Germany 2 8s can have different meanings, and one interpretaion is really disgusting: Eighty Aid is the claim of a service clinic for Cannondale's suspension fork like the Fatty, Lefty etc. Eighty Aid roots from 4x22, which is the amount of balls (sic!) in the 4 ballbearings, that make C'dales construction work and being serviceable. So far, so good! Mountainbiking is good for your health. And brain. But now the BAD: 88 also is used by (German, but also international) Nazis as a hidden salutation, referring twice to „H“ , the 8th letter in the alphabet. This is meant to mean „Heil Hitler". Which is at least disgusting. Fck Nzis! Again something new learnt! And THIS down there is a cap from the Headshok clinic!
