Show some single cut love

Recommended Posts

Any brand, any model, as long as it’s a single cut. Gentleman, and ladies if you’re out there..., post your talladegas/pro’s, Monaco’s, TLE’s, T51’s, Les Pauls, juniors, PRS’s, Huber’s, Ian Anderson’s...  hell, throw up some lawsuit Japanese LP copies, ESP’s, or even some custom boooteeek or parts guitars we’ve never even heard of. 

Just post a single cut and tell us what you love about it. 

I’ll go first...

my ‘07 Talladega. The exact guitar Hamer used for their promos, online/calendar/ad copy/etc. Yes, it plays and sounds fantastic. But the thing I love about it the most is the neck. I absolutely love the sharp V carve. Have contemplated having that neck carve copied for any custom order I ever place with any manufacturer in the future... For years I ran it all stock except for a Duncan Custom shop “Brobucker” in the bridge. An original run 10k A5 pickup before it became so sought after they decided to offer it to order. Recently reinstalled the stock bridge DD pickup and tuned it to open E so I could start messing with some slide... Love, love, love this guitar...

The guy I bought this from died last year from an opioid overdose.  It's a Custom Authentic '58.  It rings like a piano...

Lots of old parts, and a "historic makeover" before historic makeover's were cool...

Ok... after much deliberation, I have to go with this Les Paul. 

All of the ones you posted are worth a rub out. But for some reason, this one speaks to me. 

Why is it your favorite LP?  What year/model/specs/etc?

BCR Greg sold it to me.  It's a '58 Historic totally transformed by my buddy at Historic Makeovers.  It really does look like a real burst.  Fantastic guitar for sure.

Tullamore Dew off the shelf for me.  I just love it.  The 15 year is fifty dollars more and I just don't like it more...

Personally, I always felt that the individual V/T on guitars was too much aesthetically and preferred the Hamer V/V/T or master V/T setup.

my only gripe on the Talladega Pro was the 4 knobs. Just looked too busy...

Shameless promotion ... Swamp ash/roasted maple "double Thinline" (hollow on the treble side too) mad creation from my shop. That's a Stike finish ... "Gretsch orange" with Custom-like double faux binding. Man, my buddy Seth really makes it shine. Those are TV Jones Starwoods. 6 pounds, three ounces and that's with a solid bell brass sustain block in its behind (the guitar, not Seth).

If this fella was smart, he'd not have that much tied up in a guitar. Not that I am regretting it, ya unnerstand. For a possible bit of relief, I believe that Frank is soon completing the second (of an intended 5) of these 10th Anniversary models.

BTW, among the other new things (per question above) the tailpiece is milled from a solid piece and topped by a wooden insert that covers the string ends and is held in place magnetically. A few more pictures, just because.....hartung 10th anniversary 14.jpghartung 10th anniversary 11.jpghartung 10th anniversary 12.jpg

 

If a person looks hard enough, they just might find a used 5th Anniversary....Slightly less over the top.....
