NGD - Hamer Monaco Superpro - plus pickup question

Recommended Posts

Chip's gotta go. Blasphemy.

Every Hamer amber knob I've ever seen has a crack in it. It's part of the mystique.

Damn fine guitar, though.

Custombuckers are in and I LOVE the tone of these pups in this guitar...SPOT ON for my tone palette.  They are articulate, crisp, woody and punchy, without being muddy, strident or one dimensional, which I found the Duncan custom custom to be (in the bridge).

Yeah, but how haunting are the mids?

Gotta hand it to you: "strident" is a new one.

Mids are punchy and tight, fits perfect with the classic rock tones I usually cover (along the lines of tones like, say, Foreigner’s “Juke Box Hero”).  And sorry for the word misappropriation...you can substitute “shrill” for “strident”...that’s a more apt adjective for the majority of bridge pickups over 9K that I’ve tried over the last 4 decades.  But that’s just my ears,  to each his own!

I decided on these PRS amber knobs… I think they’ll work beautifully on this guitar.

I just got the PRS amber knobs in and installed... I think they look really good on this Aztec gold top!
