  1. After years of putting up with gifted cables, on sale cables, etc., I want to get something better. What do you recommend? I don't want coiled. What's with the right-angled end? I just want something durable for home use. Would prefer US made. Thanks in advance.
  2. If that drew $6 million, imagine what Paulie's Hofner will go for.
  3. How about this? I wish Prince had played Hamers.
  4. Well, my mistakes ($2240X2) seemed to work out after all. I was hoping to get back 1/2 of my money. After the original auction, I couldn't find a completed sale for either that was over $700. I dubbed these the "firewood guitars." The Harmony, I believe, was a cheapo Sears guitar that didn't even have a truss rod. I know nothing about Orpheums. And at these prices, the buyer paid a 25% buyers fee and a 3% fee for internet bidding. Thank you, Baby Jesus. Or Walter Becker.
  5. Doesn't Vai look like the Christian Bale/Ken Miles character in Ford vs Ferrari?
  6. SEE THE POSTING FROM ME FIVE ABOVE THIS ONE^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Remember when I clicked on the cell phone link twice and each time became the bidder (and high bidder at that!) for $1750. Plus fees each cost me $2240. Boy, did I feel stupid. Surprise, surprise. Check the on-line pre-auction bids below. Even with a 20% sellers fee, I am currently making a small profit. Stupid but lucky me. At this point each new bid jumps $500-$1000. This is part of the Juliens auction this coming weekend featuring the Cobain MYV Unplugged Martin now at $500,000. https://www.julienslive.com/m/view-auctions/catalog/id/320
  7. Gosh, 38 years old. That is sounding ancient. Like a pre-war Martin in the 60s. I though those were old at the time, too.
  8. Two Decembers ago, Fulltone had a Christmas Sale, not a Holiday Sale. I sent an email to Mike and said I found that was a refreshing approach. He wrote back and said something like: "Hey, it's my company." We then went back and forth about the Mas Malo and the OCD and I bought an OCD.
  9. https://www.julienslive.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/320/lot/138386?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F320%3Fpage%3D12 FYI A 1977 Fender Telecaster owned and played by Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen. Serial number S724337. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Nielsen, a hardshell case, a guitar strap with Cheap Trick pins, guitar picks, an identification card, a souvenir Cheap Trick bow tie, and a “Dream Police” patch.
  10. A lotta guitar for the money. Can't believe it is still available.
  11. Hi. Thanks. Can you add more on the playability? On the PRS side, the PRS SE One is on my radar. This was a nice example. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Paul-Reed-Smith-SE-One-/124171830432?hash=item1ce937c4a0%3Ag%3AKwAAAOSw40Zeq2u0&nma=true&si=v9NiMKKk7KLVW3hW0rwG4VvDrg8%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  12. One of these days, after I thin the herd, I would be looking for an import-level single pickup double- or single-cut guitar a la the Gibson Les Paul Special Juniors of yore. Does anybody have experience with the Hamer import? Some interesting versions pop up on Reverb every so often with upgraded pickups and tuners. Is this a good platform for mods?
  13. Truly iconic Hamer custom build. Did I say zero fret wear?. Need to stay in the HFC family.
  14. Reduced to $3300 shipped lower US PayPal gift with Double Ds (which are probably worth $250-300).
