  1. Just checked... it’s only a 14 hour drive to Barkhamsted from my house... wondering when it’s time if anyone wants to meet for a beer on a Saturday when #0123 is complete...
  2. I was going to ask that exact same question. Not a lot of experience with the brand. Played a couple in a store maybe 20 years ago. Remember them being quality. But that was right before I got heavily into my Hamers...
  3. Hmm... if it was a 6-in-line I would be so tempted. Missed out on a phantom years ago and never got around to trying to score another...
  4. Haven’t we all done that at least once...?
  5. Funky Gibber ”funky” in the fender font with “gibber” next to it. Or maybe “gibcaster”... yes, you should make a label for the headstock: “funky gibcaster”...
  6. I just now saw this. Is it the angle or is your junior thicker than standard...?
  7. I need to see this sustain block Cali... 🤤🤤🤤
  8. No, but seriously, we can come up with something righteous. You said stike finished it. Tell us more about it, you, what you’ll be playing on it, the band’s name, your favorite RomCom from the 80’s... this should be a contest. The HFC’er who comes up with the best logo gets to borrow the guitar for a month...
  9. Is “wangcaster” taken...?
  10. I literally saw a dude in a pineapple romper the other day. You gotta wear one of those...
  11. You had me at Koa....
  12. LOVE IT!!! Can’t read the name on the headstock, tho. Could just be viewing on my phone... That gives me ideas...
  13. Some people like the ergonomics of a superstrat while also preferring a fixed bridge. My 3 Charvel 750xl’s with tune-o-matic/string-thru bridges were absolute killer guitars. Of course, they were basically Les Paul type construction in the shape of a superstrat...
  14. Did Hamer ever make one? I get that the 12 string neck on the double neck Californians has a fixed bridge. But, did Hamer ever make a Californian with a sustain block like a Virt or a different fixed bridge? Or, were all USA Californians fitted with a Floyd/licensed trem...? kinda thinking of something like a Hamer Californian version of Jake E Lee’s blueburst charvel...
  15. Much better headstock than the paddle head vectors... looks awesome and I bet it’ll play even better when you’re done with it.
  16. There’s something to be said for this... i got some pretty killer metal tones with my old artist Korina loaded with PAF style humbuckers plugged into my 5150...
  17. It’s definitely not at thin as a Wizard neck. It’s got somebody curve to it. Thinner than my mid-90’s hamers which I would classify as medium thickness. It’s a 1 11/16ths” wide at the nut so it feels more like my Charvel than my hamers. Like I said, if you want some pictures, I can pull it apart this weekend and get you what you need.
  18. I mean, if James Hetfield can get away with an “EET FUK” explorer then why not...?
  19. Then I think the “pointy” shapes are a must. Scepter, Scepter V, Vector/Vector KK, Standard/Blitz, or a 6-in-line Phantom would work well.
