the ten most righteous HFC-owned Hamers

The Unbuckers are interesting......Unbalanced coils so that, when split, you do not have a sharp a drop in volume. To take advantage, you'd have to add push/pulls or do other mods......Not going to do that with this guitar.

well, you could just wire it to where you have Bridge humbucker... Bridge and Neck single coil... and Neck humbucker... then no mods required and you got a great "quack" in the middle position! a bit limiting... but still getting some use out of the unbuckers!

Not a bad idea.....Do not want to "hijack" this thread....I will try to give you some thoughts re Unbuckers and related "sound ideas" separately, later.

I guess I'm partial to my Standard Custom.

Of course, that's just me. :)

Damn, what's that?

I've seen a black transparent Standard Custom trade on ebay two or three years ago that was setup up with gold hardware. It looked tremendously nice. Mini humbuckers are a great spot too. How do you switch them?

That looks like one of the run of Standards Wilcutts had commissioned - so if it is, those pups aren't minis, they're Lollar Firebird pups unless I'm mistaken. The trans black top is killer.

The guitar is indeed one of the Standard Customs made for Wilcutts; I purchased it from them late last year. From their website:

"The Standard Customs are part of a special 5 guitar run commissioned by Willcutt Guitars. This Standard Custom features an Ultimate Grade flame maple top, ebony fingerboard with custom Victory inlays, and custom Jason Lollar Firebird pickups with custom wiring. These guitars are fully chambered with an "X" brace pattern that really opens up the sound. The electronics include a blend pot for the middle position and a ToneStyler 16 position tone pot."

The switching is fairly normal for up = neck, down = bridge, middle = both with the middle knob acting as a blender pot for the middle pickup. So the middle pu can be mixed into any switching variation by using the blender knob. The ToneStyler takes a bit to get used to but it acts as a discreet tone control at any one of the 16 positions within the pot.

Sorry, I didn't see this before as I would've answered sooner. ;)

Somebody here has got a blue 12-string Duotone Custom with abalone or paua shell purfling that almost made me wet my pants. Can't find a picture, but it's awesome.

<EDIT> Found it:

Sometimes my blueburst Centaura Deluxe comes up on lists like this...

Of course, it is BCR Greg's photographic skill that makes so many of these guitars look so awesome...

Maybe not "one-of-a-kind" but they're all either highly-optioned or first-of-a-kind.

2006 Monaco III: Jazzburst, Loolars, tort binding, and arched back.

You know what it is.

The Aceburst (when it still had a Sustain Block). Not one-of-a-kind, but quite righteous.

I must have simple tastes cause the butcher really intrigues me.

Murkat or the owner of wyldbil's former sunburst murkat is refinishing should post here. That one seems to have some history.
