Hamer Talladega (How many in the HFC?)

Recommended Posts

I have been wondering how many Talladegas there actually are.  I know there were 25 in the Earthen Maple Series, but don't have a really good idea of how many Pros and straight Tallies there are.  I figure most of the Tallies that exist are in this club.  I will start with mine and call it "One", so we know there was at least one Tally made.  Feel free to pile on.

I picked up that 2007 Talladega from Gruhn's in late 2015 (can't believe it's been that long!!).  It's a beautiful guitar, plays and sounds awesome.  Now that i'm playing jazz 100% of the time, i don't play it at all but i don't have the heart to sell it.  I look at it every time I reach for my jazz boxes though...

I have a tobacco burst Tally.  Was playing it tonight, as a matter of fact.

I've got this one:  LOVE this guitar.

It's got WCR Cherrybuckers in it at the moment, but I'm hanging onto the DD's that it came with as well.  Only one that I've seen in "Vintage Orange"

I have had 3 each of the Talladega and Talladega Pro models. Here are 4, the one on the left is the ONE that I still have. Old picture. The other five have all gone to other HFC members.

Great guitars. I too was playing mine last night. Wish all of my guitars had this neck profile.

I have this one's twin posted for sale here and a Talladega Pro which are even fewer in number.

I sold my other Talladega to an HFC member - another kick-ass guitar.

My “Irma” Talladega also has a bound neck. 

Sounds great with the Kinman P90-buckers 

(But also with the DD’s)

And the rosewood fingerboard is so dark, it looks like ebony
