Well, I got someone to bite.    Geowolves

And, someone to pull my post.   ??????

Just had to have a bit of fun.   

I have a cool one coming my way in a few years.

They look just like Hamer copies of PRS, made by skilled Gibson craftsman located in Indonesia.     🤗

??? Are you sure you posting in the right thread. Just a little confused here. 

I thought somebody may have been off their medication this morning.

Geowolves and Hbom, I was just having some fun to see who would bite.  That is my humor.  Mike is cool.  Had a great time getting my Ultimate and meeting him and the family and picking wood for a double cut.  It will be a few years before I see it if I'm still around.  Bad health.

So, come on, PRS, to Hamer, to Gobson, and then Indo?  You had to laugh.  I was.

Stay well and be cool.

And to who pulled my post, .......  well, lets not get me started, or, I'll get banned.  I think I'm on the short list for that anyway.

Oh, and I hope Mike can score the genuine Saskatchewan Elk skin for the finish and the teeth for the inlays.

No worries Paul. I think everyone understands that it's all in fun.

I'm just hoping that Mike doesn't put AHAP on the headstock. :D

Sorry. Off the wall poke at the G&L ASAT sometimes thought of as Another Strat Another Tele.

But in this case I was thinking Another Hamer Another Prs.

 

God I hope I don't get suspended for this.

I always thought it was, After Strat After Tele......As in, "How should I have done it in the first place, knowing what I know now?"

I never thought about the ASAT reference before.

Very good and true.

PRS I met in early 1987 when he was inking a deal with Sam Ash Music.

Very humble unassuming guy (he was wearing jeans & plaid shirt) and I thought the guy in the suit next to him was PRS.

I still don't care for his stuff.

I can't believe I said that. Can I plead that I hadn't taken my meds yesterday?

Just 2 weeks ago I asked Michael to not dive into that hole. AND THEN I DID IT MYSELF!

I am so sorry MR. Dung. Obviously, I am the AssHat

 I gotta ask though, what does ASAT stand for?

Oh God! Please don't open that can! So many worms, and it always gets so messy. And I think the only guy that really knows is long gone.

I love to cook. A love that grew out of necessity. My Mom could burn water.

Same, though once I learned, I gave her some pointers. She's improved a lot.   Dad could cook, but it was just the two of us in High School, and he was overseas a lot.  So I could learn to cook, live off hamburger helper, or live off McDonalds.  Like building guitars I imagine, it is a perfect blend of creativity and science which is why I think I enjoy it so much.

Not really.  It's too short, no frets, unplayable fingerboard radius...

It's a mess.

It does have that baseball bat thing going on, though.

Every time I see a new post in this thread I'm thinking it may be another Shishkov reveal. Not quite as interested in rolling pins. You guys need to quit getting me excited:lol:

Got a couple of cool packages in today.  The new custom fit cases finally arrived, and they fit like a glove.  Decided to stick with the burgundy interior, but went with a more vintage tweed look for the exterior.

I'm so excited to see the first custom guitars finished, Mike.  Your artistry is abundantly apparent.  Selfishly, I also love the cases.  If you ever sell the proto, I'm an able and willing bidder.  Damn...

I never EVER tire of these shots.

The Shishkov forum is still my first port of call on the HFC!
