Amazing how much incorrect information in the listing!

Color of pics is much redder than real

SLU pick ups were standard and the fretboard is Brazilian, info for those interested and don’t know!

Just out of curiosity was " Dave's Guitar Shop"  the only one's who had a special run of these?  Didn't Willcutt's  have a run of these too?

These are crazy beautiful in hand. The redwood bouncing off the binding/pick up surrounds is awesome. Only let mine go (dumnass), cause my E.M. Edged it out by a hair for playing time. In the most complimentary way, this kept saying, tuxedo appropriate.

Nice CHATOYANCE! Some of the prettiest mahogany I've seen on a Hamer of this vintage.

Learned a new vocab word today.  Oeil de Chat (eye of the cat)

Before looked it up I thought it was that anger I felt when one of the kids had filled their diaper at an inopportune (public) occasion.  

"Unable to find a sitter, we made our way to the DMV.  At the two hour mark of standing in line, little Marcy filled her diaper.  I felt the chatoyance come over me in waves!"

There were just 30 made, but not one store. They were allocated to various Hamer dealers. Yes Willcutt had a couple, as well as Wolfe and several others.

Redwood is quickly becoming one of my favorite top woods. Few woods look as rich and classy as figured RW. I have a bit of a stash in my shop now and nearly done with my first redwood build.

The last two words in their descriptions apply to the guitar and they're spot on in my experience, the Talladega I just bought was listed as "excellent" and I couldn't find a mark on it, zero issues.
