Monaco III content - pleasant surprise


Recommended Posts

I was checking out Lisa Loeb on Howard Stern’s show and I see an exact replica of my red Monaco III !

coincidentally, after a long time away from it, I started playing it again just this weekend...

I would expect nothing less, at least until they discover Shishkov!

Sorry you had to sit through that set to see a Hamer. You should be awarded a medal for your trouble.

Stay is actually a pretty good song. It was on the Reality Bites soundtrack from 1994. I have that CD somewhere. Back from the day when soundtracks could be an awesome way to find new artists and bands, when a soundtrack CD really ment something. Some good power pop tunes on this CD:

I feel the same way.  I am not a huge fan of the red iteration, but loved the clear-over-spruce version @Feynman had for a week or so (replaced gold hardware with chrome IIRC).  There is one, however, with a quilted maple top in a brown(-ish) hue.and tort binding.  I missed that one by about an hour a few years back.

Somehow, I managed to hang onto the one I got from Feynman all this time.

Understatement!  I probably should have placed them somewhere in my yard or in a more suitable background...

There's a lot wrong with that photo's composition.
I'm frankly surprised that you are the one who took it.

I'm surprised at you.

The shame is all mine.  I was facilitating the delivery of Steve's Newport and realized that I hadn't taken any decent photos, so pulled over and took a shitty pic.  

I'll do better next time.

See that you do!  I don't want to have to talk to you about this again.

Same here!  I was all on fire to get a MIII in 2018, one came up for sale, and I sold my Newport, my last Hamer, to get it. I was just about to send the money off when we had a family medical emergency. Everything is good with the fam now but it’s doubtful I’ll ever get a MIII.

That's cool!  I'd prefer it with cream P-90s and gold knobs, but that is pretty sweet.
