Nice looking Hamer copy. Is it an import?

If you consider Tennessee a "foreign country"!  My first wife was from Franklin.  I guess I shouldn't judge an entire state by that experience.

Is the pickup original?  The humbucker is something that people can argue about on a Junior, but for the way I would play it a humbucker is the right kind of pickup.

If you live in Germany, then yes it would be.  Or could be.  ;)

It's a Custom Shop model.  This one came from Chicago Music Exchange.  I liked the pickup configuration and the Grovers.  The guy says it rings.  Neck is too big for his hands.  We play "What If I'd Been the One" and "Hold on Loosely" by .38 Special.  I'll have my Don Barnes on.

Cool guitar with a chunky neck.  Killer tunes.  What more could you want?

If you are doing Don Barnes you need an Ibanez Artist solid body for a couple of songs in addition to what you got.  You really have to have another guitar.  There is no way around it.

I usually take three to a gig, but sometimes play just one all night.

@gorch is in Germany, so I suppose for him Tennessee pretty much is foreign, which would make it an import for him :)

I seriously like the look of that Gibson. Way cool.

Those look awesome.   Like the idea of just making one with a humbucker and Grover’s.    Call me crazy but I think a nice hefty set of real Grover’s can help tone.    St least in the case of my 335 it did.

Being a CS, that would explain the repro '50's Gibson hang tags.  I was hoping that it was a 'regular' model Junior (and thus affordable to me), but I guess not.  Dangit!  :(
