PSA: Hamer USA 2005 Special Korina Junior at DGS

Recommended Posts

cool but also not the same smooth grain we usually see on these.  neck pieces are asymmetric.  Interesting.  Cant decide if Iike it more or less with the irregularities.

As a rule I prefer irregularities. This is how we know these things are made out of wood.

This is a conversation I had with Mike Shishkov when he called me to get my thumbs up on the body for Ultimate #0009.
It seems that when he did the final sanding, pre-paint, two mineral streaks appeared and he wanted to know if I still wanted to go Au Natural vs. a cherry (like a Les Paul back), a solid color, or a different body altogether. "Whatever you want," he told me. A testament to his standards of build and visual QC.

Here are the pix he sent me:

Of course, I gave that the green light.

Uniformity and perfection bores me.

I totally dig that Junior, and love the character.

That junior is definitely not the Hamer norm...but that is not a bad thing, necessarily. Just a matter of preference. Figuring and character is cool.
