JJ Paul Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 Pictured below is a surprise find in an italian store that usually deals very upscale stuff (Lesters, Hubers, Fender CS, etc). Owner looks at me, winks and says - you're the Hamer nut, right? Been posting pics of those Explorers (sic) and stuff - huh? What about this one..? He pulls out a dusty Hamer case, flips the lid - and lo and behold here's a P90 special, virtually in new unplayed condition, with the original University Drive warranty card, small Hamer logo tuners, not one sign of metal patina / aging, no hameritis, no checking. Sho' nuff took her home. Wasn't cheap - guess I'm paying the price for having pushed the Hamer name around quite a bit for the past 2 years (and yes - italian guitarists are rediscovering the H name once again!!) ... the equivalent - adjusted for import taxes + shipping - of $700. Out went the original SDs (sorry Seymour - they really sucked) in went a set of Lollar P90s. And now - this baby ROCKS...sweet lord, does she rock!! Happy sunday, everyone http://www.flickr.com/photos/uncle_groove/111273711/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
