  1. Team Shishkov rock! I have fantastic memories from both of my visits to Shishkov HQ.
  2. Awesome. One of my favourite Shishkov guitars.
  3. I too love Fractal and haven’t looked at an amp head purchase since. I started with an Ultra and was disappointed. The 2 was a huge improvement and the 3, having spent considerable time working with it, is even better. For me the biggest difference from 2 to 3 being feel although it does sound better. I’ve found a workflow when programming presets that works for me. The hardest part of all is dialling in IR’s and mixing them to taste but when you get it right... I’d never go back.
  4. That Sir is an absolutely brilliant find. An O’Connor Cali and a maple board? I reckon that’s a very rare Hamer. Looks fantastic.
  5. The studio and guitars are twenty miles from my home.
  6. He has a few Hamers. Wheels them out every now and again.
  7. This sort of stuff infuriates me. I think there needs to be recognition with custom instruments that lacquer cracks do indeed happen. I had this before with a Cali sale. The buyer made a point of raising it but luckily recognised that there’s no way of dealing with it satisfactorily. Has this new owner not accepted that he may be the cause himself if he opened the case too quickly on arrival? You read of people opening cases and witnessing cracking before their eyes.
  8. All bought by the same person in the UK evidently.
  9. This has the making of being a very happy ending. I really hope this works out for all concerned.
  10. I sold my TD30K kit to someone once. He came round with his 10 year old son, who it was intended for, and I was ready to throw a few compliments when he sat down to play. Then he hit the sticks together “1, 2, 3, 4” and utterly blew me away with his immense talent as he did everything from Stuart Copeland to Taylor Hawkins flawlessly.
  11. What a lovely guitar. A pure retro Hamer right there!
  12. Personally I think that’s a lot of guitar for it’s current price. I wonder where it ends up?
  13. That Sir is stunning craftsmanship. Very impressive indeed.
  14. Sounds like you have a sale there potentially Mr. Dave!
  15. It’s a great guitar Dave. When I sold it to you I kind of hoped it would stay as it was. Hopefully, since your refret problems, it still plays nicely. I saw online that Fret Fiend had issues with his tools that resulted in problems. I hope you kept the original Floyd Rose. That’s got to be an easy £100 on eBay towards your next Hamer. The binding does indeed make it stand out, especially so, with that colour. The amazing thing about the colour is that in bright light it really pops. Perhaps inside, in these rather dull Brit winter months, there isn’t enough light to reflect its best attributes?
  16. Even with what looks like a headstock break that’s good value.
  17. I’m with you there on all of those. Sometimes Zimmer really moves you like nothing else musically.
  18. Sending best wishes from the UK for a safe and speedy recovery.
