Thanks for the posts.

I have a personal milestone I might reach in a year or three. If I make it, I think I'll do a CO. I think it will be a Dantzig as Hamer no longer exists and I

do like the Dantzig headstock. I am assuming and can get from Dantzig what is largely a Hamer in terms of design and quality - I'm not looking for a $30,000 guitar with a story. Just something sort of fancy and nice.

Jol posted the Redwood over Limba body today - getting interesting and exciting...

The grain on that redwood looks nice! I'm following this build. Thanks for posting, coolfeel.

Exactly,

I was just wondering about how long time it takes to get one of his custom order's...?

No updates to share right now - Last I heard, Jol had a lot of stuff going on at the shop. Hope to be able to share something soon though - thanks for the inquiries!

Quick update for those following along here... Jol gave me a ring this morning and updated me a bit on things at the shop. He has been real busy toggling back and forth between making guitars and his media production company. He will be sending some pics this week on the progress and I will share as I get them...

Looking f@#$% forward to it. :) Man, it's been a while! :)

What kind of media production company is he running? I thought his bulletin in PG was it.

I imagine others here may be able to speak about it better than I am - Steve or Chris?

He does some photography and video production and has been traveling around a lot recently working on stuff. Some of the stuff he has produced in the past includes the Building an American Legend Hamer shop documentary among other things.

A quick update - Jol sent me a pic of the Redwood billet he will be using for this guitar. Whoa!!! The billet looks pretty farging killer!!! Man - this should be pretty sick. He will be getting the billet sometime next week and will do a quick one-over to ensure there are no hidden issues and then he will proceed with the build.

I'm glad that Jol is still working. Seriously, if you can get him to do exactly what you want without breaking the bank or compromising your idea to the point of thinking why am I ordering this, I'm sure it will be an awesome and very well made guitar ! I've always felt the Hamer QC and build were far better at the end, than during the glory years.

Then again, I've personally never gotten the exact guitar that I ordered from Hamer, but maybe I was unlucky multiple times :)

Love what I have seen on Jols page though.

I think you raise a valid point. Regarding Hamer - the Custom Chap I got in 2012 was EXACTLY as I ordered and it was custom spec'd to the T.

When I first started this custom order with Jol we talked several times before I placed the order. Jol was very open to the ideas I had and even offered a few of his own. I didn't go into this particular build with precise specs, I thought it would be cool to bounce ideas of of Jol and get his input as well. What I get vs what I have ordered - only time will tell. I'm hopeful that it will turn out well though.
